There have already been seven engagements, five weddings and three children as a result of the show, with McGuinness putting his matchmaking skills to the test once again with a fresh line-up of 30 single women.

The programme, known for McGuinness's "no likey, no lighty" catchphrase, sees single men face the panel of women, who have only moments to decide whether to switch their podium light on or off for the chance to be chosen for a date.

After a few choice questions, it is then up to each man to pick one hopeful contestant to take with him for a romantic trip to the island of Fernando's.

The show's spin-off programme Take Me Out: The Gossip will see a new twist this series as hosts Mark and Laura listen in on the winning couples' exotic first dates.

They will join them for nights out and give updates on how their relationships have moved on since first matching on the show.

The ITV2 spin-off, which used to broadcast straight after Take Me Out, will move to a new Sunday evening slot.

:: Take Me Out returns to ITV2 at 7pm on Saturday.
