Sealed with a kiss
The eight-part reality show will follow 10 single men who travel to Europe to find the man of their dreams.

In an interview with stargazer previously, Dannii recalled playing in gay clubs. “I used to play in gay clubs when other artists didn’t. It was something a lot of artists didn’t do, but I thought, I don’t care what someone says I’m going to do it anyway It’s not just gay people supporting me, I support them – it’s just been a good healthy back and forth Something that’s evolved over time Danni had said.
