Minogue, 50, 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."

The star went on: "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!” she added.
