The premise is a little more different though: the couples will only win if they manage to resist temptation and not touch each other.

But with these singletons from all across the world out to attract a partner, who will prove they can go the distance in the luxury retreat?

Francesca Farago

Age: 25

Francesca comes from Canada and is a travel influencer who previously dated DJ Diplo. She describes herself as a free spirit and a thrill-seeker who isn’t afraid to break the rules. Francesca admits she is a little fearful of commitment, but she does have the name of her ex tattoo-ed on the inside of her mouth! How will the boys react to that one?

Harry Jowsey

Age: 21

Australian Harry classes himself as a “giraffe on ice” when it comes to dancing, but give him a couple of drinks and he’s a disco queen. He’s certainly a head-turner and immediately commands attention from the second he enters the retreat – but why can’t he find the right girl?

Too Hot to Handle

Sharron Townsend

Age: 25

New Jersey’s Sharron is not to be messed with as he is a personal trainer and professional kids’ wrestling coach, but does enjoy a cheeky flirt with the mums at the matches. He claims he’s a 10 out of 10 and was once crowned Mr Pennsylvania in 2018. He says he has trouble settling down but will that change at the retreat?

David Birtwistle

Age: 28

Londoner David has the brains and the brawn as he is an ex semi-pro rugby player with a first-class degree in engineering. His ex is currently engaged to Hugh Hefner’s son but he prides himself on his motorbike and his cool exterior. Will he manage to connect in the retreat?

Matthew Smith

Age: 29

Confident Matthew certainly makes his mark when he enters any room and having previously been nominated for America’s Next Top Model, his looks speak for himself. However, he has trouble making deep connections with those he meets and he’s worried he’ll only have his dog to keep him company as he grows old! He’s a deep thinker who loves to skinny dip, but will any of the girls catch his eye?

Kelz

Age: 27

Instagram: @kelechidyke

Kelz was originally born in Austria, but moved to the UK when he was 13 and now is a Senior Recruitment Consultant in London. He’s the alpha-male who always gets what he wants, but is the Too Hot to Handle prize out of his grasp?

Too Hot to Handle

Rhonda Paul

Age: 27

Atlanta-born Rhonda has never let anything get in her way when it comes to getting the man of her dreams. She’s bored of the dating scene and wants something different – which is definitely what she’s going to get with Too Hot to Handle! But when she has to share male attention with the other girls, will she find that she doesn’t like the competition?

Nicole O’Brien

Age: 23

Instagram: @nicole.ob

Irish Nicole lives in London now but she’s previously travelled the world as a marketing consultant working on Yachts where she’s hosted the likes of Kanye West, Justin Bieber and Jay Z! She isn’t afraid to speak her mind and will no doubt ruffle a few feathers on the retreat. Nicola admits she can be selfish when it comes to dating but she won’t compromise. Will she be able to learn some lessons and find the man of her dreams?

Haley Cureton

Age: 20

Instagram: @haley.cure

Florida business student Haley volunteers at an animal shelter and is full open to candid discussions about what she likes and doesn’t like. She has a tattoo in an “unknown language” that she still doesn’t know what it says and is open to getting to know the boys and and the girls – but will she find the one?

Too Hot to Handle

Chloe Veitch

Age: 19

Instagram: @chloeveitchofficial

Chloe from Essex calls herself a heart-breaker and often says the wrong thing. She has no problem attracting the men of her dreams, but keeping them is another thing. Impulsive Chloe is looking for someone she can settle down with but can she learn the error of her ways and pick the right man instead of the wrong one?
