Canada will soon have its very own version of UK dating/cooking series Come Date With Me.

The W Network has picked up the rights to the format, which sees men compete to win a date with a woman – or vice versa – by impressing them with their culinary skills and domestic prowess.

Canada is one of several overseas markets to have acquired the series, with others including Sweden, Ukraine and Latvia.

”Come Date With Me brings a fresh and interesting twist to the world of dating,” said Paul Buccieri, managing director, ITV Studios International and CEO of ITV Studios America. “The deals are a credit to the ITV Studios team that developed the format and we look forward to further international deals for the series.”

The original series proved popular on Channel 4 in the UK, particularly in the 16-24 demo.
