This is not Mr Dews’ first rodeo on live television, with the songwriter previously featuring on ITV’s speed dating show Take Me Out in 2011 and 2018.

After a lack of success in his search for true love, Richie is hoping that  third time’s a charm as he readies himself to walk down the aisle and meet his wife.

The 51-year-old has spent 23 years in the music industry, constantly on the road and meeting fresh faces - something that he says has “kept him young”.

Richie Dews saw a song that he wrote featured on a Russell Watson album - someone who he says he will get to perform at his wedding.
