Pucker up. The BBC has teased a glimpse of the UK's first gay dating show I Kissed a Boy with Aussie royalty Dannii Minogue fronting it.

Set to sashay onto BBC Three and BBC iPlayer soon, a new preview image shows two men kissing in front of a villa alongside singer and presenter Dannii. The programme promises to feature classic anthems to celebrate 'the queer community and invites all viewers to join the party'.

Ten single guys will be matched up and lock lips with a potential partner as they are introduced for the first time to test out their chemistry or lack of.

The synopsis reads: "I Kissed a Boy is packed with explosive drama, gripping cliffhangers and powerful untold stories – from coming out in a strict religious family, to the pressures of body image in the gay dating scene, to navigating self-acceptance, sex and first same-sex relationships."

Former X Factor judge Dannii shared a post on social media and wrote: "In a picture perfect Masseria in Italy... it all starts with a kiss for 10 boys in their search for love. I Kissed A Boy is the UK’s first ever gay dating show, and it was a pleasure for me to be there to help these guys in their search for love."

She added: "I'm beyond excited for you to see this. Are you ready for some Summer loving?"

Last year, a delighted Dannii expressed her excitement to host the show and said: "There are millions of people in the UK looking for love. And I believe love is for everyone. So I am so thrilled for a gay dating show to be entering the sea of other dating shows that have existed on TV for years.

"I have been a staunch ally of the LGBTQ+ community for as long as I can remember. My close friends know that my dream job title would be 'Cupid' – so this gives me that flutter-of-love feeling inside too, just to be a part of it. Let's hope there is love, sealed with a kiss!"
