Cat Deeley is to host a new celebrity dating show called The Choice this summer, Fox has confirmed. The new programme was trailed during American Idol on Wednesday night May 2 and will blend elements of The Voice 's "blind auditions" format with speed dating. Fox's president of alternative entertainment Mike Darnell said in a statement: "We wanted to put a new spin on the dating game show that gives celebrities 'the choice' of a lifetime and the chance to prove you really shouldn't judge a book by its cover.

O ne of the biggest problems with TV dating shows is that our relationship with the contestants is infuriatingly brief. On Dinner Date we see them eating one, maybe two, quick meals together. On Sing Date we see them perform a single duet face to face. On Take Me Out , any early embers of attraction are suffocated by the sight of Paddy McGuinness waddling around in a circle like a constipated duck.
