TV3’s Blind Date are looking for senior citizens to appear on the show.
The dating show, which will be hosted by comedian Al Porter, will start filming next month – and producers want to sign up pensioners looking for love.
An insider told The Sun, “The response to the show has been brilliant and there have been so many applications that now they’re just trying to finalise numbers.
“Initially there weren’t enough men applying but now they have balanced things up and are hoping to get a number of elderly contestants to apply. It should make for great TV.”

A TV3 spokesman has said that applications for the show have now closed, but when looking for contestants, a show producer posted online, “Looking for women in their 70s to apply for Blind Date. If you know anyone who might be interested let me know, would love to chat to them.”
Details about the lengthy form Blind Date hopefuls are asked to fill out have also been revealed.
Potential contestants are asked if they have been “married, engaged, separated or divorced”, and asked how long their last relationship lasted, and the reason for the split.
Applicants are also asked to disclose anything “which may attract negative press or publicity”, and detail any “criminal judgments against them”.
They also have to give details of all their social media accounts.
