Home & Away’s Ada Nicodemou will host Seven’s new dating series Please Marry My Boy.
The series gives four Aussie mums the power to find their unlucky-in-love sons the girl of their dreams.
Based on a UK format, it attracted plenty of laughs when a showreel was played to advertisers at Seven’s 2012 Programming Launch.
While the show includes speed dating, each male doesn’t realise his mother will choose his top three candidates. The girls are then told they are moving in with the mothers.
“Who doesn’t know a mum who dreams of her son meeting the perfect girl, falling in love and get married?” says Nicodemou.
“I’m always on the look-out for my single friends. I can’t help it – it’s the born match-maker in me. I’ll meet someone and immediately start making mental notes about why they would make a good partner.
“The mums we meet in the series are fantastic. They approach the task of finding a match for their sons with military precision. They know their sons better than anyone, so they have very firm ideas about the perfect mate. Their sons had better watch out!”
Produced by Granada Media Australia it airs in 2012.
