Zara took to Instagram stories to share more about her journey to getting the show, “Isn’t life just crazy sometimes. If you’d have told me 4 years ago that I’d be presenting my own dating show on BBC, along with three documentaries, I would NEVER have believed you. I could barely contribute in a meeting because I was so nervous to speak in front of people.

“But I have never said no to anything, even if the thought of it scared the shit out of me! Going on TV for the first time 4 years ago… I was trembling for 3 days straight because I was so nervous! But I got through it and overcame those nerves. And now… cameras and speaking in front of people doesn’t scare me anymore!!!!

Love In The Flesh follows five couples who have only spoken online, who will meet in the flesh and see if they sparks remain.
