Channel 5 has ordered a brand new dating show.

The series, which has a working title of The Dating Show but is reportedly known at the studios as Stand By Your Man, appears similar to ITV's hit Saturday night show Take Me Out.

According to Broadcast, the studio-based show - which has a "nightclub feel" - sees the female studio audience collectively deciding which of a number of male contestants is their favourite.

The lucky man then gets to pick one of the women to go on a date with.

Channel 5's entertainment, daytime and soaps commissioner Greg Barnett said that he is "very excited" about the show, adding: "It highlights precisely how your opinion of a person can change with every new piece of information you learn about them.

"It's witty and entertaining and I hope viewers will love playing along at home."

The series is due to film in March and April in Manchester, »
