“For the most part, we want to create shows that are funny, clever and buzzworthy, but two out of three ain’t bad,” Potts and Nash said, to which Meat Loaf added: “You took the words right out of my mouth.”

The show will see couples put their relationships to the test while trying to win cash prizes.

The pairings will go through physical challenges based on iconic ballads, where their communications and trust skills will be put to the test.

While now channel or air date has yet been announced, it has been confirmed that Meat Loaf himself will be a driving force for the shape of the show and the challenges behind-the-scenes.

Meat Loaf's 1977 album Bat Out of Hell went platinum with songs such as 'Paradise by the Dashboard Light' and 'Two Out of Three Ain't Bad' becoming huge hits for the star.

The star, whose real name is Marvin Lee Aday, released hit 'I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)' in 1993 from the album Bat Out of Hell II: Back Into Hell and reached number one in 28 countries including the UK and USA.
