Keshet UK’s Celebrity Showmance Picked Up by ITV2


ITV2 has commissioned Keshet UK’s new comedy entertainment show Celebrity Showmance.

The series, narrated by Doc Brown, sees six single celebrities paired into three very unlikely “couples” who go to hilarious lengths to convince the public that they’re in a real romantic relationship. In each episode, the three new celebrity couples: Chloe Sims (TOWIE) & 5ive pop star Abz Love, socialite Lady Victoria Hervey and footballer Jamie O’Hara, and Hollywood actress Hayley Hasselhoff and Kyle Christie (Geordie Shore) are given a series of ridiculous challenges to attract maximum social media attention.

Satmohan Panesar, the commissioner of factual entertainment at ITV, said, “This show looks at the world of celebrity in a fun way, with its tongue firmly in its cheek and I hope that it strikes a chord with ITV2’s growing audience of younger viewers.”

David Williams, the creative director for non-scripted at Keshet UK, added, “We all love a celebrity couple but as we know, sometimes all isn’t as it seems. But thanks to the hilarious efforts of our six courageous celebrities, Celebrity Showmance is a topical and affectionate take on the world of showbiz today.”
