BBC Three serves up full portion of Eating with My Ex

7 March 2018

One Meal. Two Exes. Some Awkward Questions.

Eating with My Ex, the BBC Three show which invites former couples to meet up for dinner, dissect old passions and answer brutally honest questions about where their relationship went wrong, is returning to the channel.

Originally available on BBC Three in bite-sized chunks as 7 minute episodes, the long form version will be extended to 30 minutes, allowing audiences to enjoy even more from the past partners discussing and digesting where it all went wrong.

Some want an apology, some want a reunion, others just want closure. Exciting new ingredients will ensure that this second helping of Eating with My Ex promises to deliver plenty of delicious insights into why the estranged exes were unable to go the distance.

The series, which was originally created by Shotglass Media, will be a co-production with Thames, with James Cooper and Kat Hebden (Shotglass Media) and Phil Harris (Thames) as Executive Producers and Paddy Hughes as Producer and Director.

Kalpna Patel-Knight, Entertainment Commissioner at the BBC says: “I’m really excited for the long form version of Eating With My Ex. It worked as bite sized chunks but you really wanted to hear a bit more.  So the long form will give you more insight into the relationship and what their family and friends think.  It promises to be heart-warming, explosive and fun.  And comedian Jayde Adams will be giving her witty take on the dates too”.

Kat Hebden, Managing Director of Shotglass Media and Executive Producer says: “We are delighted to be taking this format into a long form version.  It’s a fantastically revealing format, and offers viewers the perfect way to eavesdrop on the juicier conversations going on at the next table in the restaurant!

Eating with My Ex is a Shotglass Media/Thames (part of FremantleMedia UK) co-production for BBC Three and will air later this Spring.
