Davina McCall acknowledges that 16 year old son Chester, 16, finds her ‘so embarrassing’

Davina’s Teenage Son Finds Her ‘Embarrassing’ Davina McCall, the 55-year-old TV presenter, discussed her new mid-life dating show, My Mum, Your Dad. In the show, single parents nominated by their grown-up children get a second chance at love. While Davina herself found love in 2019, her 16-year-old son Chester finds her ’embarrassing.’ She believes viewers will relate to the families on the show, as it highlights the dating experiences of mid-lifers.

Davina’s Personal Life Davina, a mother of three, including daughters Holly and Tilly, shares her experiences as a single parent and her own dating journey. She started dating hairdresser Michael Douglas in 2019, two years after her split from her husband of 17 years, Matthew Robertson.

The Concept of My Mum, Your Dad My Mum, Your Dad follows single parents who spend 24/7 together in a country house while their children watch and play matchmaker from a nearby bunker. The parents believe they are being matched by relationship experts, but, in reality, their children are orchestrating the dates.

Embarrassing Moments and No Sex Scenes During filming, there were moments where the adult children hid behind cushions due to embarrassment, but Davina clarified that there would be no sex scenes shown on TV. She emphasized the importance of capturing the emotional aspects of dating rather than explicit content.

The ‘Middle Aged Love Island’ Comparison The show has been referred to as ‘the middle aged Love Island,’ a nickname inadvertently coined by Davina herself. She explained that while she pitched a different idea to ITV, she was called in to host My Mum, Your Dad.

Short Duration and No Prize Money Unlike Love Island, My Mum, Your Dad will air for only two weeks, with Davina justifying the shorter duration by stating that mid-lifers know what they want in a relationship. There is no prize money; instead, Davina believes that ‘the prize is love,’ and the show aims to promote genuine connections.

Challenges of Dating in Your 40s and 50s Davina discussed the challenges of dating in your 40s and 50s, including issues with confidence and self-esteem. She mentioned the struggles many middle-aged individuals face when trying to navigate dating apps.

A Dream Come True Davina described the show as a ‘dream come true’ and expressed her excitement at representing middle-aged love on primetime TV. She highlighted the uniqueness of a group of mid-lifers coming together to find love and companionship.

Meet the Single Parents and Their Matchmaker Children The show features single parents nominated by their children, who serve as matchmakers. Profiles of some of the parents and their children are provided, showcasing their motivations for participating in My Mum, Your Dad.

Air Date and Schedule My Mum, Your Dad is set to air on ITV1 and ITVX, starting on September 11, with consecutive weeknight episodes for two weeks.
