The late 1990s reality dating show Streetmate will return – and producers are to pound the pavements of Leeds in search of singletons.

Davina McCall presented the show by scouring city streets with people to find them a date between 1998 and 2001.

Following a charity special edition last year, Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt will join presenter Alan Carr to front a new series for Channel 4.

They will be coming to Leeds in the coming months – and want people who are looking for love to sign up for the challenge.

Scarlett Moffatt said, “I can’t believe Channel 4 have asked me to present this iconic dating show.

“I remember watching Davina on Streetmate when I was younger and thinking females can present entertainment shows too, I want to do that when I’m older.

“It’s such a fun show and it’s two of my favourite things to do, chat to randomers and a love story.”

Anyone who is interested in appearing on the show must be 18 or older.
