The full cast has been revealed for new BBC dating show, I Kissed a Boy.

The BBC has announced a new gay dating show titled I Kissed a Boy is on its way. The  show, which is the UK’s first gay male dating series, stars 10 men looking for love in an Italian masseria (similar to a farmhouse).

The contestants will enter the masseria in pairs, and will start their journey with a simple kiss. But will sparks fly at first sight, or will there be a kissing catastrophe?

Either way, pop icon and LGBTQ+ ally Dannii Minogue will be on hand to help the contestants find love and oversee a series of ‘kiss-offs’, where each pair will decide whether to stay in their current partnership – or save their kiss for another boy.
