What is Ready To Mixle?
The new ITV2 dating show will follow a single woman in her search for her perfect man and 12 men will then go head-to-head to win her affection. However, there is a twist. Some singles are already in a relationship and will lie about their single status in the hopes of winning a cash prize.
They will stay in a luxury clifftop location as they go through a series of tests, tasks, and games to compete for their ailments as each competitor is taken down one by one. But that’s not all. The men who are in relationships will be secretly aided in competition by their actual partners, who, it seems, will be frowned upon as their men outright cheat on them so as not to blow up their blanket.
Why is the format controversial?
When viewers heard about the format, they complained to the television regulator OFCOM.
One of them wrote: ‘Hello @Ofcom can we complain about this before it goes on air? What a horrible and damaging idea for a show.’
And presenter Katherine Ryan said she abused the “vile” idea of people who thought it was “upset” to have men pretending to be single.
But the actress defended her feminist tenets and recorded a podcast asking people to wait and see before passing judgment, saying the format was not as straightforward as you might think.
And she ended by saying, “But keep sharing – because I look TOO GOOD IN THE PRESS PHOTO. [above]. I’m wearing this amazing giraffe print fitted shirt – it’s a great shot. Just share it. It will be the one that has all the C words below that are intended for me. Then people will see how things are when it comes out. “

The show is filmed inside Bay View House, a £ 3.5million ultramodern three-story luxury home with stunning views of the South West Coast Path in Maidencombe above the cruise ships in the Babbacombe bay.
There was tremendous excitement and a bit of anger when news broke that a new dating show was reserving all of the vacation homes and fields available around Maidencombe on the Cliff Road from Torquay to Teignmouth. They filmed paddleboarding tasks on the beach and rented a luxury boat in Torquay Marina for another.
Most locals seemed to enjoy the hive of activities – but the residents of the tiny hamlet of Maidencombe were annoyed by a large fireworks display late at night for the final.
