Emma & Matt Willis Confirmed As Hosts Of Love Is Blind UK

We can't wait for this!

Love Is Blind are getting a UK season!

The popular reality dating show is usually set in America, but has had spin offs in Brazil and Japan. Now, English, Scottish and Welsh people will be gracing our screens in a UK version of the show – and we couldn’t be more excited.

But who is set to host?

Well, the OG Love Is Blind is presented by married couple Nick and Vanessa Lachey, and they often offer insights into their own marriage on the show. It makes sense, then, that the new hosts are also a married couple!

Netflix have just announced that the chosen duo are none other than Matt and Emma Willis.

For those of you who can’t quite place them, Matt was a member of the iconic pop punk band Busted. He won I’m A Celebrity in 2006, and had a brief recurring role on Eastenders along with other TV work.

Emma Willis is a broadcaster who has hosted Big Brother and I’m A Celebrity, as well as doing TV and radio work for ITV and BBC.

Love Is Blind UK won’t be the first show the couple have appeared on together.

Both Emma and Matt used to co-host the I’m A Celebrity spin-off, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here NOW!, and have also starred together on Cooking With The Stars.

The pair were also the subject of a documentary about Matt’s struggles with addiction, Matt Willis: Addiction And Me, which is apparently what caught the eye of the Love Is Blind scouts.

Matt shared that he is “so excited to be presenting the UK version of Love Is Blind with Emma.

“We love the show! It’s been such a dream working together and fascinating to watch the process unfold. Experiencing this new project side by side has been really amazing and I can’t wait for people to come on this journey with us.”

Emma added that she loves to “play matchmaker” and is so excited to be co-hosting the first ever UK version of Love Is Blind.

I’m intrigued to see people connect on a purely emotional and mental level right off the bat, without visuals playing a part. Plus – you’re getting double Willis! I’ve loved going to work with Matt and we’re both obsessed with the show, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity!” How cute is that?

While we haven’t got an exact release date yet, Netflix have reportedly said the show will come out next year.
