Ready to Mingle: meet single girl Sophia, the star of Katherine Ryans new dating show

Love Love Island? Our Factor 50 email brings all the goss direct to your inbox

Already missing Love Island? Worry not. Ready to Mingle – ITV2's new reality dating programme – starts tonight (6 September 2021) and is set to be the perfect fix for those of us missing a regular dose of real life romance.

Hosted by comedian Katherine Ryan, the show follows single girl Sophia on her quest to find the perfect partner. With 12 male suitors competing for her affections and the chance to share a £50,000 cash prize, will Sophia be able to weed out the genuine guys from those who are just in it for the money?

In a sneak peek released by ITV, Sophia told the show that she "treat's men really well" and said: "I don't actually know why I'm still single."

She continued: "I'll watch the whole football and not have a clue what's going on. I'll have a Guinness. I'm really supportive, really giving, really loving. So, I'm not really sure I just think I really haven't met the right guy yet."

Hopefully Sophia can find her dream match, but there's a catch. Not all the guys are single. Some of them are already in relationships and their partners will be watching every move they make.

Their goal is to convince Sophia that they're single, partner up with her and scoop the cash prize.

In order to get to know the boys better, Sophia will live with them in a stunning house in Devon for three weeks. She'll go on dates, play games and enjoy activities to help her get closer to her suitors.

Sophia will eliminate one boy at a time until the only the guy she feels is truly single remains.

The 24 year old graphic designer admitted that her dating history is "terrible" and that her mates are "just at the end."

However, the romantic flops of the past haven't put Sophia off her pursuit of true love. "It's all about to change. I'm gonna find a man," she said confidently.

Sophia continued: "I'm aware this is a competition, this is a game but if I really like someone it is still my heart and it's hard.

"They can try and play me like a fiddle but listen it's not happening again. If I get one inkling of you being a liar I'm sending you packing."

Katherine Ryan added: "It’s like nothing we’ve seen before but still with all the drama and dating dilemmas we love to see, and I’ll be there front row as it all unfolds!"

Ready to Mingle starts 6 September at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
