My Mum, Your Dad

At Chapter 2, we’re completely enraptured by the latest sensation on ITV: ‘My Mum, Your Dad,’ a captivating series helmed by the wonderful Davina McCall. It’s a heart-warming, beautiful new programme that’s been hailed as a Love Island for the middle aged. Thankfully there are no prying lenses in the bedroom!

Picture this: adult children nominating their parents for this extraordinary opportunity. These lucky parents embark on a two-week retreat in a gorgeous country house complete with a tennis court and a pool. Little do they know, their offspring, aptly dubbed ‘dating experts,’ observe their every move, date, and conversation (which, let’s admit, might make for some difficult viewing!). And the pièce de résistance? These couples are matched up by their own flesh and blood for a series of activity-packed dates.

Now, let’s talk about Roger, a delicious silver fox who’s captured the nation’s hearts. Widowed and still navigating the uncharted waters, he shares his story of love and loss, and how he clearly struggles with the idea of finding a Chapter 2. We’re all routing for Roger, hoping he discovers the next enthralling chapter in his story. And if not, well, he’s got an open invitation to dial my number anytime.

No glittering cash prizes, no wannabe reality TV stars. Instead, ‘My Mum, Your Dad’ is an intimate portrayal of 12 genuine, middle-aged souls looking for love. It’s emotional and heartfelt, and a testament to the tender beauty of human connections. Plus, for those of us who grew up in the 70s and 80s (and let’s face it, that’s most of us!), the soundtrack is nothing short of incredible.

This got us thinking: what songs would compose the ultimate ‘Chapter 2’ playlist? What melodies ignite your joy or touch the depths of your soul? We’d love to hear about the tunes that stir memories of love lost, yet also offer glimmers of hope and inspiration for the road ahead. Drop us a line at, and stay tuned for our curated playlist, soon to grace the airwaves of Spotify and iTunes.

If you find yourself with a few precious hours spare this week, we highly recommend immersing yourself and binge watching ‘My Mum, Your Dad’ on ITV X. It’s wonderfully entertaining.
