Take Me Out is going to have an OAP special

Paddy McGuinness has revealed that there is an OAP special of Take Me Out in the works, which will obviously be amazing.

He was talking to Nick Grimshaw on his BBC Radio 1 show this morning (September 13) about the next series of ITV’s hit dating show, shooting in November, when he dropped the big news.

“I don’t know if I can say this, probably people will be going mad, but we’re doing two specials this year,” Paddy explained.

“One of them, this is going to get me in so much trouble. It’s not been greenlit, but if I say it, it’ll happen. We’re doing an old age persons’ special. Come on, I love the OAPs!”

It’ll be like all of those adorable old people dates on First Dates mixed into one glorious hour.

Applications are currently open for the next series of Take Me Out, although it’s not clear how they will cast the OAP version.

Last night (September 12) on The One Show, Paddy got a bit emotional and shed a few tears when he was presented with a very special gift from teenage artist Tjili, who is deaf and has cerebral palsy.

“Oh, god,” he said as he fought back tears. “What an amazing little girl. Fantastic. Blimey. Get me a tissue! What’s going on?! It’s because I’m a dad, that.”
