E! has confirmed an Australian airdate for the highly anticipated reality series The Bi Life, hosted by Australian entertainer, advocate and UK Celebrity Big Brother 2018 winner, Shane Jenek (also known as Courtney Act).

The original concept, focuses exclusively on bisexual dating. It will see a group of bisexual+ (bi, pansexual, fluid, etc.) or questioning British singletons sent on an adventure to find love abroad.

The Bi Life will be set against the cosmopolitan backdrop of Barcelona. The cast will live together, party together and help each other navigate the rocky road of bisexual+ dating as they observe and feedback on each other’s experiences. For some, this will mean exploring who they are, for the very first time.

Throughout the experience, the cast will provide each other with support and encouragement as they share their stories, form new friendships and go looking for love. The series will chart their highs and lows as they embark on a life of dating and romance in Barcelona.

Shane Jenek says: “I’m so excited that The Bi Life will be premiering on E! in Australia. It’s high time there was a dating show for the large number of young people today, like me, who are attracted to more than one gender. In 2018 we know that sexuality is fluid and sharing the stories and experiences, the laughter and the love making, of young bi people is so important. So get ready to see the true stories of bisexual singles, who are the largest part of the LGBTQ+ community, but the least known.”

Further details on the series format and cast members are set to be announced in the coming weeks.

The Bi Life is produced by Monkey, a production house known for producing Made in Chelsea and The Real Housewives of Cheshire.

The Bi Life premieres Tuesday October 30 at 7pm on E!, available on Foxtel and Fetch. Available to stream same day on hayu.
