At 9 pm on Monday, two intense competitions played out on British television. The first was a debate between the two potential candidates for Prime Minister on BBC One. The second, over on ITV2, consisted of one man making carbonara topless whilst another performed a tone-deaf rendition of a High School Musical song as part of a talent(less) contest in an episode of Love Island. 

This scheduling clash made it clear that, unsurprisingly, neither Truss nor Sunak are avid Love Island viewers, but it also served as a reminder that whilst Love Island might take over the summer of myself and my contemporaries, the same cannot be said for the maturer half of Britain.

Until now, that is. Reports suggest there is a television show in the works that could make even Liz Truss tune in (potentially) … a  Love Island for middle-aged contestants.
