My Mum, Your Dad fans were left ‘dying of embarrassment’ during Monday night’s show as the contestant’s kids watched them taken part in an intimacy challenge. 

The new series, which hit screens last week, sees eight single parents enter a West Sussex country house in the hopes of finding their second chance at love.

During the programme, the group visited a therapist to work on their boundaries, with Roger and Janey getting up close and personal as they sucked on an ice cube together. 

Meanwhile, Paul was seen licking chocolate off Natalie’s neck as their children squealed and squirmed. 

Viewers were left cringing as the contestants children watched on in horror from another room, covering their faces with pillows.

Sharing their thoughts on Twitter one person wrote: ‘Loool I feel like I’m watching my own parents and it’s making me cringe but laugh at the same time.’

Another added: ‘The kids reaction watching their parents do the challenge are the same reactions we’re all had.’

A third person posted: ‘The sex and intimacy thing was way too early in these people’s relationship journeys. So awkward and so public in front of each other and on telly. Toe curling cringe. Brilliant TV for us though.’  

‘Dying of embarrassment watching #MyMumYourDad,’ another viewer wrote. 

Roger and Janey became the first couple to spend a night in the private suite during Monday’s instalment of My Mum, Your Dad.

The pair have been growing closer after Roger opened up and picked Janey over Caroline after the first week in the retreat. 

Roger lost his beloved wife Joanne – and Jess’s mother – to cancer last year and he told on the show how she went to sleep on the sofa and never woke up. 

The latest instalment of the ITV middle-aged dating show saw Roger and Janey share an intimate night together and their first kiss.

While giving Janey a foot massage, Roger said: ‘I’m actually not that confident of a guy which I know is a turn off’

Janey replied: ‘You do not have to change, what I like about you is your funny I think you and I are very similar, our protection is our humour.’

She added: ‘I just haven’t met the right person yet.’

The pair were both in agreement that they find each other ‘attractive’ before sharing a peck and sweet embrace. 

My Mum, Your Dad continues Tuesday at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.

Name: Sharon

Age: 53 

Location: Sunderland

Profession: Safeguarding and welfare officer in education

How would you describe yourself in a few words? Fun, genuine, personable. 

Why did your daughter nominate you for MMYD? She was getting desperate! I’d lost all confidence in myself. I think for Tia she was wanting to give me a bit of a helping hand.

 

Name: Caroline

Age: 51

Location: South Lanarkshire

Profession: Tech advisor/scan assistant at a private baby clinic

How would you describe yourself in a few words? Charismatic, outgoing and fun. I can be a bit fiery at times!

Name: Roger

Age: 58

Location: Derbyshire 

Profession: Postman 

How would you describe yourself in a few words? Fun, loving, conscientious, struggling to get old – I don’t want to get old. I lost my wife, I know that you can get up and life can be over in a split second.

Why did your daughter Jess nominate you for MMYD? She’s a lovely girl. Her mum was really thoughtful in everything – she could plan things to a detail – and Jess has got that. She is so thoughtful and it was just a lovely thing for her to say, ‘Dad, look, we understand that you’re struggling and it’s been hard and we know that you’ve got a lot of love to give and we’re OK if you were to see someone else’.

Following my wife passing 18 months ago, I didn’t really want to meet anyone. You don’t expect it to be you and you don’t expect it to be your wife. But I’m going on the show to get some confidence. I must have subconsciously wanted to meet someone by saying yes to the show.

Age: 56

Location: Birmingham/lives in Epsom

Profession: Retired basketball player, sports presenter and MD

How would you describe yourself in a few words? I’m big, I’m fun, I’m outgoing and I consider myself to be a likeable sort of bloke. I’ve spent 90% of my life in the friendzone… I’m everyone’s best friend.

Why did your daughter nominate you for MMYD? To try and get me out of the friend zone! I have a lack of self-worth and she feels I am worthy and I do a lot for my family and I should have a chance to find emotional fulfilment.

Name: Taiya

Age: 21

Location: North London

Profession: Student 

Why did you nominate your mum to go on the show? I nominated my mum because I think she deserves love! She’s put everything aside to raise me and my sister for so many years so I thought now is my mum’s time.

 

 

 

Name: Tia

Age: 24

Location: Sunderland

Profession: Social media influencer 

Why did you nominate your mum to go on the show? I feel like it’s finally her time to be happy. I think she’s put herself on the backburner to bring up myself and my sister. In the last few years I feel like she’s given up on love, so she didn’t want to try anymore. I hope putting her forward will be the push she needs to put herself first.

 

Name: Karli

Age: 20

Location: South Lanarkshire

Profession: Flight attendant 

Why did you nominate your mum to go on the show? She was single for a while and she doesn’t seem to have any luck with guys. So I thought why not?

Name: Mazey

Age: 21

Location: Bath 

Profession: University Student

Why did you nominate your dad to go on the show? I want to see him settled. The way he was dating before wasn’t working. I wanted him to date outside of the box.

 

 

 

Name: Christian

Age: 35

Location: Nottingham

Profession: Graphic artist/warehouse employee

Why did you nominate your dad to go on the show? I just want him to settle down, find the right person – he’s getting on now! I want him to live life with someone. I want him to travel with someone and get out there.

 

 

Name: Jess

Age: 28

Location: Derbyshire

Profession: Network rail planner 

Why did you nominate your dad to go on the show? It was a joint thing with my brother and sister and it was our way of basically telling him that we were happy for him to start dating, if that was something he wanted to do. 

It was a cop out on our part really, as it meant we didn’t need to sit down and actually say it. It was a sneaky way of saying, ‘Oh look at this, do you want to look into this?’ Never actually expected anything to come of it.

It was about putting dad first. We’d never really thought about us, or about ourselves in that situation. I wasn’t thinking about how I’d react, I was thinking about him.

The reason for that is he does the same for us, he would always put family first. So it was just a way of saying to him, stop worrying about us. If he wasn’t ready, that was also totally fine. It wasn’t an ultimatum. It was just, if you want to, you can, don’t worry about us.

 

Name: Zachary

Age: 21

Location: Essex

Profession: University student 

Why did you nominate your dad to go on the show? He deserves a chance to be happy and he hasn’t had that. I want him to have what a lot of his friends have done; get married and settle down. He deserves the opportunity to find the ‘end stages’ of love.

 

Name: Will

Age: 19

Location: West Sussex

Profession: Student

Why did you nominate your mum to go on the show? It’s getting a bit desperate now! We need a good chance of getting her to find someone. 

If it takes me to get involved, then that’s apparently how dire things have got! 

 

Name: Jessica

Age: 23

From: Epsom

Profession: Model/ Sales & Marketing/ Mental Health Skills Coaching

Why did you nominate your dad to go on the show? I want him to get out there a bit. He’s been focussed on us kids and his work and not even really thought about the possibility of meeting someone new that he could date or have a relationship with. 

He deserves that and to have someone to do nice things with and have an emotional connection with outside of his kids.

 

 

Name: Georgia-Blu

Age: 28

Location: London 

Profession: Chartered Accountant

Why did you nominate your mum to go on the show? I think my mum is such a good catch. Growing up, I’ve never really seen her in a really long settled relationship and that’s something I’ve always wanted for her. 

I nominated her so she would get a chance to meet someone who she can settle down with, she really deserves it.

 

Name: Luke

Age: 18

Profession: Bartender

If you were writing your dad’s dating bio and had to summarise him in a few sentences, how would you describe him? Loving, caring, busy, loves the attention, loves to go out and do stuff. He loves Ibiza! He loves meeting new people. 

He’s always interested in you and if there’s a connection there, always has lots of questions. He loves to explore and go on holiday. He gets very emotionally attached.
