BBC Three is reportedly working on a new show where people who have connected via dating apps meet for the first time.

BBC Three has reportedly commissioned a new "post-coronavirus" dating show called Love In The Flesh.

The series will track couples who have connected over dating apps during the various coronavirus lockdowns of the last 15 months but have not yet met in person.

According to The Sun, the participants will be flown out to a sunny location and filmed as they come face to face for the first time.

"Online dating has soared in the past year during lockdown," a source told the newspaper. "With the world slowly opening up, these internet lovers can no longer hide behind their screens and will have to meet their match in the flesh.

"This BBC show gives these couples everything they could possibly need for the perfect start - a Love Island backdrop, stunning weather, good food and ultimately the date of a lifetime.

"But will the person live up to expectations? And will the chemistry be real?

"While they have already match-made themselves, nothing compares to meeting someone in the flesh.

"Viewers will be able to follow these couples as they discover if they really have met The One, or whether it's been a waste of time and they're not who they were cracked up to be."

Love In The Flesh is expected to be filmed this summer for release via BBC Three later this year.
