Dinner Date is a British cooking dating game show, which first aired on ITV from 9 August 2010 to 28 December 2012, with subsequent new series airing on sister channel ITVBe since 8 October 2014. The programme makes up a significant proportion of ITVBe's output, with several repeats airing daily. New-to-air episodes are generally scheduled on a weekly basis, although some episodes from the fifth series were stripped daily across weeknights.
The show involves a man or woman going for dinner at three different people's houses on consecutive nights and then subsequently choosing which of them they would like to go on a date to a restaurant with. At the end of the show, the viewers are told whether they are still dating or not.
A celebrity version of the show has also aired since its move to ITVBe, featuring well-known British media personalities as the date-selecting participant. Famous dinner daters have included former soap actors Joe Swash and Gemma Oaten, reality television stars Amy Childs, Hugo Taylor, Casey Batchelor, Charlie King, Vicky Pattison, Andy Jordan, Ashley James, Josie Gibson, D'eric Bredburn, Ricci Guarnaccio, Jasmin Walia, television presenter Matt Johnson, and So Solid Crew member Romeo Dunn.
The UK version of Dinner Date broadcasts in over 20 countries, including; Belgium, Bosnia, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong and Taiwan, Hungary, Iceland, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Macedonia, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, South Africa, Serbia and Sweden.
