Where is filmed Ready to Mingle? New ITV show hosted by Katherine Ryan based in Torquay
ITV’s new dating show Ready to mingle hosted by comedian Katherine Ryan is slated to hit our screens tonight (September 6).
Ready to mingle follows an unmarried girl on her quest to find love, as 12 male suitors vie for her affection and the chance to win a big prize.
But like with every reality TV show, there’s always a twist …
And in this case, it’s the fact that not all boys are single, with some of them even being coached by their actual partners to try and win the cash prize.
During this time, applicants will stay in a luxurious hideaway, where the single girl will get to know all the boys through activities, games and dates. She’ll then take out each contestant one by one until she finds her “dream man,” according to the show’s synopsis.
But where exactly is this luxurious hideaway that we will regularly see on the show?
Here’s everything you need to know to know where Ready to mingle was filmed:
It wasn’t shot overseas like Love Island
Unlike the popular ITV 2 dating show Love Island, which is filmed on the Balearic island of Mallorca, Ready to Mingle is based in the UK.
The luxury hideaway is located in Torquay, Devon
Torquay, which is located in South Devon, is known to be one of the country’s top holiday destinations and has been named by Trip Advisor as the UK’s Best Beach Resort.
Additionally, filming took place in a 5,250 square foot clifftop six bedroom luxury house with six bedrooms and a gym / media room and fitness center. a terrace overlooking “unrivaled panoramic sea views” of the South West Coast Path, according to realtors. , Strutt and Parker.
We’re pretty jealous, to be honest.
Neighbors were paid a lot of money for production in order to use the fields for vehicles and catering
It looks like neighbors next to the house pocketed the shoot.
According to DevonLive, residents received money for the use of their fields so that the crew of up to 60 people and production vehicles could be parked, along with portable desks and catering marquees.
At first, they weren’t sure what the production was for, with some initially thinking it would be used as a setting for a staycation version of Love Island due to the pandemic, but it wasn’t.
Ready to Mingle will air Monday, September 6 at 9 p.m. on ITV 2.
