Have you heard the news that Blind Date is coming back to our screens, revamped ‘in a young, modern and sexy way’. Apparently you have to earn your right to love on this show – given that millennials only access love through the swipe of a finger!

However, im excited! I grew up watching Cilla Black strut her ginger self on stage, matchmaking whilst she would belt out that all to familiar catchphrase “lorra lorra laughs”.

Its going to be hard to replace old Cilla, she was a legend and the talent that’s being rumoured to take up the position leaves me feeling a little nervous. Vicky Pattinson is the front runner at the moment, I’m not convinced, presenting is hard enough (I know I present a science show) but to take over and present a legendary show is a tall order – in fact has she ever presented anything? Then the other favourite for the job is Olly Murs. I like him – he’s nice, honest and very watchable the only problem is he’s not Cilla, he has the charisma but Cilla had so much more she was a legend already. 

However I’m intrigued how they are going to revamp the show and what they will keep in… In any case let’s just hope its ten times better than that Paddy McGuiness show, god that was dreadful.
