Ah TV just when I thought i’d seen it all you go and surprise me.
Channel Ten has secured the rights to the compelling, hilarious new reality series, I Wanna Marry “Harry”.
Already an internet sensation overseas, I Wanna Marry “Harry” will feature 12 women competing for the love and affection of Prince Harry. However, there is a catch: it’s not actually Prince Harry, but an imposter.
The cheeky reality show enlists Englishman Matthew Hicks to convince 12 blissfully ignorant women that he is Prince Harry.
Matthew is an average English chap who receives the royal treatment and an upper crust makeover before meeting 12 single American women who are all searching for Prince Charming.
I Wanna Marry “Harry” follows the women as they fight for their chance to marry “Prince Harry”, while living at an English estate.
Matthew must convince these beautiful women that he is a member of the Royal Family. If he does, will they fall for the crown or fall in love with the real him?
Each week, Matthew (or “Sir”, as the ladies call him) handpicks one lucky lady to take on an extravagant adventure, while another’s dream of “happily ever after” is dashed and she must leave the estate.
When Matthew narrows down his choice to one woman, he will finally have to admit the truth about his royal masquerade. The winning lady then must decide if she can look past the pretence and love this gent, who is more pauper than prince.
Network Ten Chief Programming Officer, Beverley McGarvey, said: “I Wanna Marry “Harry” is a fantastic reality romance program with a royal twist.
“It is pure fun and escapism. Although it hasn’t launched yet, the online buzz surrounding this show overseas is enormous. It is rapidly becoming a television event.”
I Wanna Marry “Harry” creator Danny Fenton said: “We’re delighted our antipodean cousins are going to be enjoying I Wanna Marry “Harry”. “This royal dating romp is compelling viewing for royalists and republicans alike. I’m sure everyone will be talking about the format in the weeks and months ahead.”
I Wamma Marry Harry is coming soon to Ten.
