Holly Willoughby has landed herself a brand new presenting gig and will front new dating show Meet The Parents on ITV.

She may have ruled herself out to host The Great British Bake Off when it moves to Channel 4, but Holly has now bagged herself a new show and we're LOVING the idea of it.

The This Morning star will be getting a group of singletons to enlist the help of their parents to help them find their love. Their parents. Now, that's got to lead to some embarrassing moments, no?

Holly, who had previously teased a new TV venture, seems to thinks so.

Speaking about the show, she has said: "We all know how embarrassing parents can be and nobody knows you better than they do.

"I can't wait to hear what humiliating secrets they'll be revealing and see who will regret leaving their love life in the hands of their parents."

So what's the concept?

Well, apparently NOTHING is off limits and the person who is picking a potential suitor on the show will get to ask their 'rents absolutely anything. It's then over to mum and dad, who will spill everything on their child, from their exes, to their bad habits and those ever important cringe-worthy stories from when they were little.

Sounds like things have the potential to get a little out of hand...

Their kids (those waiting to be picked) will be able to see and hear everything and are given only ONE opportunity (an urgent phone call) to get in touch with their parents and no doubt tell them to reign it in.

After all, it's all about that first impression!

ITV has teased that Meet The Parents will be coming soon, but no official start date has been confirmed as of yet.

Check out a teaser clip of the show below - it's certainly got us intrigued!
