Looks like no likey, no lighty for hit dating show Take Me Out.
ITV’s hit dating show Take Me Out hosted by Paddy McGuinness has been axed after ten years on the air.
Announcing the news last night (10 February), ITV confirmed the show would be waving goodbye to the Isle of Fernando after a decade of bad puns, chat up lines and very awkward VTs.
A representative spoke to The Sun about the decision, saying:
“We’ve decided to say goodbye to Take Me Out,
“The original version of Take Me Out premiered in January 2010, and has spawned spin-offs for celebrities, pensioners and holidays, in addition to classic catchphrases from Paddy like “no likey, no lighty” and “let the pina see the colada.”
The show saw a hopeful male singleton try to win the heart of one of the show’s resident single females, usually with embarrassing VTs featuring his mother and a whole load of corny chat-up lines that audiences couldn’t get enough of.
Take Me Out has seen huge competition in recent years with new dating formats becoming huge hits, such as Love Island, First Dates and Naked Attraction.
Paddy McGuinness recently joined the cast of Top Gear after leaving his role on Celebrity Juice to focus on the show.
