Now let the banana see the split!

Developer Handmade Mobile Entertainment created the app which is based on ITV's Saturday night dating show, made popular by host and comedian Paddy McGuinness.

The programme invites one male contestant to do his best to impress 30 lovely ladies across three rounds in order to secure a date to the show's holiday destination, the Isle of Fernandos.

Take Me Out Flirting will allow users to create a profile and look for love with dating partners by using the chat, flirt, virtual gifting and currency features within the app. A string of 'Paddyisms' used by the Bolton-born presenter are also available to choose from.

Viewers of the show will also be able to chat with each other and connect with past and present contestants. Additionally there will be an opportunity for users to become VIP in a virtual version of Fernandos.

Matthew Dicks, CMO, Handmade Mobile, said: "It is with great enthusiasm we have the opportunity to work with FremantleMedia Enterprises for the development, monetisation and marketing of the Take Me Out Flirting service. The partnership is perfectly timed to execute a best in class app that builds on the reach of the TV broadcast."

In addition to the app, FME has commissioned the production of Take Me Out clothing which is due out later this year. Since the show was launched in 2010 it has been adapted to another 18 countries including Australia and China.

Take Me Out Flirting is available on Android, iOS, mobile web and is set to launch on BlackBerry and Ovi shortly. For more info, click here.
