It comes after The Sun previously reported that ITV had another dating show for adults – like Love Island – with its working title being called Your Mum, My Dad.

They claimed filming for the dating show is scheduled to start later this year.

A TV source told the outlet: “Times change and the current generation in their 40s and 50s still care about how they look, are fit and healthy, into fashion and are ready to let their hair down.

“This show will give those who settled down young a second chance at love while they still feel in their prime.”

Davina McCall might even bag herself as the show presenter after “begging” ITV to let her present a Love Island spin-off.

She confessed: “I’ve got no embarrassment or shame in emailing a TV company and going ‘have you thought about this? What about this? Can I do this?’

“I’m literally begging ITV to let me present mid-life Love Island."
