Is Al Porter the new Cilla Black?
The Irish version of Blind Date is coming to TV3.
To add to the list of things that Al is amazing at including award winning comedian, columnist and Today FM broadcaster, he can now add matchmaker!
A TV source told the Irish Sun: “Al is perfect for hosting Blind Date.
“He can pull in viewers and go off script and be entertaining. Al’s a vaudeville performer.”
They added: “First Dates has been doing well on RTE2 so TV3 need their own dating show, and Al Porter fronting Blind Date would make car-crash TV.”
Lucy Kennedy was originally lined up to host the show in 2014 before the idea was eventually scrapped.
TV3 are now looking for contestants for the new show and are calling on all the single men and women in Ireland, of all age groups, looking for love to apply.
