All-star line-up for warm and celebratory series, Our Shirley Valentine Summer (w/t)

ITV’s brand new series, produced by Twofour, Our Shirley Valentine Summer (w/t), will see Melinda Messenger, Sian Lloyd, Nancy Dell’Olio, Aggie MacKenzie, Ninia Benjamin, Lizzie Cundy, Annabel Giles, and Ingrid Tarrant, escape to a Greek island for the summer.

Under the glow of the Mediterranean sun the cast will live together under one roof, as they discover the islands, something new about themselves and the ups and downs of communal living.

They are all single and at a crossroads in their lives.  All of them harbour a passion to try something new or pursue long held dreams in an attempt to transform their lives, for the better.  Some want the opportunity to learn a new skill or test drive a new career, and many will be looking for love. Far from being ready to retire, they all share a desire to work out what to do with the third chapter of their lives.

Each of the ladies has a personal goal, for example, overcoming a marriage breakdown, losing weight and building self-confidence or finding a new career.  Many of them are also looking for love and will spend time dating.  For some, it could be their first date in a decade, whilst others are looking for someone special to spend the rest of their lives with.

From the makers of The Real Marigold Hotel, this feel good series captures the beauty of the Greek Islands: the people, the colours and the way of life, as this group of brave women explore what else life can offer them.

The series is coming soon.
