With a title like Dated & Related, you could be forgiven for thinking that the latest reality dating series looks at couples who are actually related. Not so.
In a twist to the usual dating formula, Dated and Related promises to be the most awkward dating show you've ever watched.
As dating shows go, we normally see the various singletons looking for love and picking the worst person for them. It brings the drama, but it is annoying.
Now imagine going on a show with your actual sibling and having to go on their dates WITH them!!
Yes, Dated and Related takes the tricky world of dating and makes it even worse. Brothers and sisters will have to chaperone their siblings and see how they flirt, how they treat their partners, and what their signature moves are.
What Is Dated & Related About?
In this brand-new reality dating series, pairs of siblings will be seeing each other’s love life up close and personal as they search for ‘the one’ together.
Having the person who knows you better than anyone should help you navigate the tricky world of dating.
But will the best friends act as the ultimate wingman and help you find love? Or scupper your plans and call you out on all your bullsh*t?
And what happens if you both like the same person?? Awkward!
Through host Melinda Berry, you get to follow the contestants as they look for love. And some might even find it!

Is Dated & Related Worth Watching?
Here's the thing. I love a juicy reality dating show as much as the next person. I mean Love is BlindLove Is Blind was the ultimate in car crash tv as couples ditched each other at the alter and then had to go back for the after party and face each other. Ouch.
Love Island is a mega hit with young singletons willing to sell their soul for a shot at £50,000 and a boost in their Insta followers and Too Hot To Handle attempted to get its contestants to think about more than instant attraction.
But when you have to watch one sibling dating with their other sibling sitting beside them as they snog the face off someone, then the cringe factor really gets ramped up.
They may be in a luxury villa in the south of France, but that does not mean that they will find love. If anything all they find is drama.
So is Dated and Related worth watching? Maybe if you have nothing else to do and you love a bit of reality drama. Otherwise, it's just another social experiment using totally stunning single people who want to be Instafamous.
