Colourful Midland MP is hoping to find love on a TV dating show.

Michael Fabricant, Conservative MP for Lichfield, will appear on Channel 4’s Celebrity First Dates.

His appearance in the forthcoming show was revealed by the Prime Minister Theresa May, who mentioned it to a bemused House of Commons today (Wednesday, September 13).

Mrs May said: “I have noticed that he is shortly to appear on a Channel 4 programme called Celebrity First Dates. What I’m not sure about is whether he is the celebrity or the first date.”

The celebrity version of the popular reality show has previously included television presenter Esther Rantzen, EastEnders actor Richard Blackwood, weather presenter Sian Lloyd and Vamps lead singer Brad Simpson .

Singletons are paired up for dinner at a central London restaurant and the date, as well as their reaction afterwards, is filmed.

Mr Fabricant, 67, instantly recognisable in Parliament for his unmistakable thatch of blond hair, was treated for prostate cancer last year.

The Lichfield MP was first elected in 1992 and has been a party whip as well as a former Tory vice chairman.

He has previously turned down repeated requests for him to appear on I'm A Celebrity.. .Get Me Out Of Here.

It is not known when Celebrity First Dates will be screened on Channel 4 but the new series of First Dates returns on September 18 at 10pm.
