Television dating show
Turkish state media said the ban was imposed because Wikipedia had failed to remove content promoting terror and accusing Turkey of cooperation with various terror groups.There was no indication when the ban might be removed, with a formal court order expected to follow in the coming days.LONDON, July 6 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - A popular dating show on British television will for the first time include lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) contestants, more than 30 years after it was first broadcast.The “Blind Date” episode, to air on Saturday to coincide with London’s gay pride march, will feature a woman deciding between three potential female dates who are hidden from view.Reacting to the ban, Wikipedia’s founder Jimmy Wales wrote on Twitter: “Access to information is a fundamental human right.
The blindfold is removed and the dewy-eyed duo can decide whether they care to spend the rest of their lives living together in love and harmony. The innovative new blind-dating app, Jig Talk, is bringing conversation back into the dating equation.Josie, also known for her strident views on post weight tummy tucks, will cajole and charm each contestant into divulging secrets about themselves, never revealed before. To host my own show has been a dream for as long as I can remember; to be hosting as a modern day Eros is as good as it gets.I can’t wait to light the flame of love for as many of the contestants as possible.” Potential consorts will be blindfolded throughout the duration of each show, while their dating hopeful will have the opportunity to assess them, based upon their answers and reactions and their performance under pressure.16 jigsaw pieces cover each Jig Talker’s photo, and these pop away one by one as more and more messages are exchanged between matches. This refreshing, gamified approach to dating lets personality lead, re-injecting the all exciting ‘chase’.Jig Talk will be released in early February on i OS and Android.
