Channel Seven has announced that Ada Nicodemou will front its reality show Please Marry My Boy when series two of the popular dating programme returns.

“This is such a lovely show with a great heart,” she says. “It’s warm and fuzzy feel-good TV, and in a time when we are so often bombarded with bad news, it’s a series everyone can cheer for.”

Please Marry My Boy offers three Australian mums the chance to find their unlucky-in-love sons a mate. The women take charge of every aspect of the courtship process with cameras in tow.

Beginning with the speed date selection process, the mums will narrow a field of prospective partners from 10 to three with the successful girls then invited into the family home. Each week the girls must successfully master a challenge designed by their suitor’s mum in order to secure a date with their man.
