BBC Three, the corporation’s streaming-only channel, has ordered an expanded run of Eating with My Ex, the observational series which invites former couples to share a meal while they dissect old passions and answer brutally honest questions about where their relationship went wrong.
Originally screened as 7 minute episodes, the new run will be extended to 30 minutes, allowing audiences to enjoy even more from the past partners discussing and digesting where it all went wrong.
The series, which was originally created by Shotglass Media, will be a co-production with Thames Television (part of FremantleMedia UK), 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!”
