Profession: Tech advisor/scan assistant at a private baby clinic

Why did your son Christian nominate you for MMYD? He’d like to see me settled with someone I could have a future with. 

Name: Roger

Age: 58

Location: Derbyshire 

Profession: Postman 

How would you describe yourself in a few words? Fun, loving, conscientious, struggling to get old – I don’t want to get old. I lost my wife, I know that you can get up and life can be over in a split second.

Why did your daughter Jess nominate you for MMYD? She’s a lovely girl. Her mum was really thoughtful in everything – she could plan things to a detail – and Jess has got that. She is so thoughtful and it was just a lovely thing for her to say, ‘Dad, look, we understand that you’re struggling and it’s been hard and we know that you’ve got a lot of love to give and we’re OK if you were to see someone else’.

Following my wife passing 18 months ago, I didn’t really want to meet anyone. You don’t expect it to be you and you don’t expect it to be your wife. But I’m going on the show to get some confidence. I must have subconsciously wanted to meet someone by saying yes to the show.

Profession: PE teacher/football coach

How would your son describe you? He’d say I am good fun, easy going (I’m not easy going).

Name: Janey

Age: 47

Location: West Sussex 

Profession: Singer/recruitment manager

How would you describe yourself in a few words? Fun, kind, outgoing and creative. 

Why did your son nominate you for MMYD? Because he’s lost all hope for me, he thinks I’m undateable! He wants me to meet someone.

Name: Martin H

Age: 56

Location: Birmingham/lives in Epsom

Profession: Retired basketball player, sports presenter and MD

How would you describe yourself in a few words? I’m big, I’m fun, I’m outgoing and I consider myself to be a likeable sort of bloke. I’ve spent 90% of my life in the friendzone… I’m everyone’s best friend.

Why did your daughter nominate you for MMYD? To try and get me out of the friend zone! I have a lack of self-worth and she feels I am worthy and I do a lot for my family and I should have a chance to find emotional fulfilment.

Name: Tolullah
