ITV2 today announced that TV favourite Scarlett Moffatt will host brand-new cookery dating show - Love Bites - a 30 x 60” series made by Ricochet, a Warner Bros. International Television Production UK Company.

Airing this autumn, Love Bites will see three suitors battle it out to win a date by each cooking a three-course meal using the same box of ingredients, in a bid to win a date with a single foodie.

Culinary skills will be put to the test, and Scarlett will be there every step of the way as she guides the singletons through the experience as they cook up a storm in the pursuit of love. 

Scarlett Moffatt said: "I am beyond excited to be hosting ITV2’s new show Love Bites which is coming to your screens this autumn. I’ve always been obsessed with both dating and cookery shows so this rolled into one really is the dream gig for me.

“I’ve had such a blast filming with the daters and watching them whip up a storm in the kitchen. Make sure you stay tuned to check it out in all its glory, it's a culinary and dating delight served with lots of LOLs so perfect TV for the colder months.”

Paul Mortimer, Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions ITV, said: “Scarlett is a warm, funny and quick-witted personality, currently impressing on ITV2's Celebrity Karaoke Club. Audiences love her; we’re excited that she'll be presenting this exciting new series that blends together food and flirtation.”

Katy Thorogood, Ricochet’s Creative Director, said: “We’ve loved working with Scarlett - she presides over the mayhem in the Love Bites kitchen with a natural wit and warmth."

The series has been commissioned by ITV’s Paul Mortimer, Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions and Amanda Stavri, Commissioning Editor, Factual Entertainment, ITV.

Love Bites is produced by Ricochet, a Warner Bros. International Television Production UK Company based in Brighton. The Executive Producers for Ricochet are Rob Butterfield and David Sayer and Executive Director is Emma Walsh. Series Producer is Hetal Dhanak and Development Executive is Claire Egerton-Jones.
