In a world where online dating is moving into the norm, more than ever, we’re looking for new ways to connect and canoodle. In what’s been billed as “Britain’s biggest blind date,” this social experiment series aims to create hundreds of scientifically-compatible couples. After selecting matches through “scientifically robust” testing, the couples are followed over the course of a year to see if there are really plenty of fish in the sea for us all, or if, in our search for companionship, we can be “blinded by science.”
