Power to the girls who will continue to flirt in a way that is true to themselves — as I did, in front of millions of people. The lights are going off on the nation’s favourite dating show, Take Me Out. A fter 11 years embedded in our collective hearts, spawning eight weddings and six babies, the news has sent waves of sadness through the social media realm. After all, the Paddy McGuinness -fronted show has become a Saturday night staple and even spawned an ITV2 spin-off, a success that few television shows achieve. Amidst the grief has come inevitable finger-pointing. It was positioned as a family-friendly dating show, which you could watch with grandma or grandpa, before you got ready for a night out with your friends — ready to use the contestants’ one-liners forming the inspiration for chatting up a hottie in the club.

Take Me Out cancelled by ITV after 11 series – but why has Paddy McGuinness’ show been axed?
Hosted by Paddy McGuinness, the programme sees 30 single women looking for a date — and a series of men coming down the Love Lift to try to impress them. Unfortunately for Steve the girls were turned off by his antics, which meant he missed out on a date as all the ladies eventually dimmed their lights. One light went off because a girl said they had the same hairstyle, but others liked his pink shirt, and compared him to Ozzy Osbourne and Gaston from Beauty and the Beast.
But a whopping 21 lights went in round two, prompting Paddy to question if there had been a power cut. It followed pre-recorded footage of his mate telling viewers Steve was great at pulling pints, but not women. For the final round, he dressed up in a dazzling cowboy outfit and started doing some line dancing — and that saw the final three lights go off with excuses of not liking the diamantes on his jacket, and being allergic to the hay in the cowboy props.
