A group of singleton stars could find themselves paired off with a hot love match on a new reality show.

The primetime dating series will see unlucky-in-love celebrities invited on to discuss their likes and dislikes, while a computer comes up with their perfect match.

Newly single Chantelle Houghton - who split from 'Crimewatch' presenter Rav Wilding earlier this month - Calum Best, 'Big Brother' star John James Parton and 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Chloe Simms are all reportedly set to appear.

An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "There are loads of celebrities who have disastrous love lives so we thought we would give them a helping hand.

"Let's face it, some need all the help they can get. You never know, it may spark a celebrity wedding!"

Bosses will pair single stars off with the celebrity they believe to be the best fit and cameras will follow the couples as they head out on a romantic dates, which could include rock climbing, candlelit dinners and hitting trendy nightclubs.

Each celebrity will then be taken aside to tell the camera crew how the date is going, and whether they think there is a celebrity connection that could be taken to the next level.

With filming set to begin in August, the as yet unnamed series will be screened on Sky later in the year.
