An unscreened pilot episode was made for Channel 4 in 2009, but it was ITV who picked it up for a series.
The show is produced by Thames (formerly Talkback Thames).
Alternatively, if only one girl remains lit from round 3 then the man gets to choose between her and a "mysterious girl", who remains unseen until he makes his choice.
