MTV’s Catfish is seeking Irish cast members

Worried you’re chatting to a catfish?

Online dating is tough. It’s tricky to match with the perfect person, but even when you do, it’s impossible to know if they are who they say they are until you meet up in person.

If you feel that the person you’re chatting to online might be hiding something, then MTV want to hear from you.

That’s right, MTV’s hugely popular series Catfish UK is seeking Irish applicants to be a part of the upcoming season.

The show, which investigates online relationships, is looking for Irish people who are chatting to someone they’ve never met in person.

Catfish UK is currently looking for people who have “fallen for someone using a fake profile, never had a video call or met in person or those who are keeping a secret from their online date.”

A spokesperson from Viacom, the company that produces Catfish UK said: “Each episode brings couples together who’ve interacted solely through the internet.”

The show then sheds light on the daters’ real identities by setting up a face to face meeting.

The spokesperson continued: “They’ve supposedly fallen in love or become best friends. We arrange for them to finally meet in real life for the first time.

“Whether someone is worried that they’re in love or friends with a catfish or would like to come clean to the person they’re catfishing, we can help them.

“We’re looking for couples and friends who have never met up in person or even seen each other on video chat.”

They continued: “Whether they want to finally meet their online love or friend face-to-face, have something to confess or simply want to get to the bottom of why they always cancel dates, we would love to hear from them.”

Applicants must be over the age of 18, and they can apply online, email [email protected] or phone 00 44 7743 00 1261 for more information.
