    ITV bosses have announce Davina McCall will host the brand new reality TV show The Romance Retreat.

    The former Big Brother legend stole the job after publicly "manifesting" her position shortly after the news broke surrounding the upcoming dating programme.

    It is understood that the highly-anticipated series – described as "Love Island for single parents" – will hit the airwaves later this year on ITV.

    The exciting new dating format is centred around a group of single parents from all over the UK who have been nominated by their children online.

    The sexy singletons will live together at a stunning retreat with one sole objective: to find true love.

    Bosses have already warned fans there will be lots of laughs and tears along the way as they navigate the highs and lows of finding love again.

    The 55-year-old excitedly confirmed the news on Instagram with a lengthy caption as she teased the new show to her loyal legion of fans online.

    She wrote: "Omg.. I manifested and it came true !! I'll be hosting a brand NEW grown up dating series for ITV1 !!

    "This is a show for single parents who have lived a life, have stories to tell about their dating pasts and deserve another chance at love and I'm gonna help you.

    "It will all take place in the most romantic countryside location !! We are still casting so if u want my help finding love and u have a child who is over 18, what are you waiting for ??? (particularly u eligible men .. where are you?! [shifty eyes emoji])"

    Following the epic winter Love Island final, executives have announced the new Love Island style show will arrive on our screens in the near future which is aimed at "vibrant single parents."
