Davina McCall responds to questioning of My Mum, Your Dad

My Mum, Your Dad: Teaser trailer

Davina McCall recently opened up about her new ITV dating show My Mum, Your Dad and revealed why it was only two weeks long.

When it was first announced that the show was being made, many branded it “mid-life Love Island” which usually runs for eight to 10 weeks.

However, with the new format and less pressure on the people taking part, the show will only run for two weeks.

When questioned why it was only two weeks, Davina told Express.co.uk and other press: “Do you know what I really thought it was a lot to ask.

“You’ll have to wait and see but actually I think there’s a thing when you’re with somebody 24/7, you’re older you’ve got life experience.

“You kind of know when you know because you’ve gone through so many bad relationships. And it becomes quite obvious when something’s working when something’s not working.

“There are amazing workshops that happen as you’ll see as the days develop. So these workshops are designed to help get to know people on a much deeper level.

“It works brilliantly. So in fact, when you think about what is going to happen in two weeks instead of six, it is unbelievable. What does happen, you’ll be amazed.”

Davina also added that she was “proud” of the show and it felt like a “dream come true” for her.

She said: “Personally, this is like a dream come true to walk into an entertainment TV programme, Primetime ITV and see my people.

“A bunch of midlifers who will look really cool, really good, fun, culturally, like sort of sit at the same place in life. Like we all understand each other.

“We’ve all been through second-time rounds, as you know, it’s like really brilliant to be in a room full of those kinds of people, I’m proud.”

The show will see eight adults who have been nominated by their children to have a second chance at finding love.

Whilst they are in the house getting to know one another, their children will be down the street in another house, secretly watching their every move.
