By Stephanie Colderick

BBC3 is bringing us a new dating show called I Like The Way U Move, which will mix dancing and dating - and there is a Welsh contestant searching for love.

In the new dating show, which will drop as a boxset on BBC iPlayer on Sunday, October 17, professional dancers and those with little dance knowledge will try to find chemistry on and off the dance floor.

During the show professional dancers will meet their prospective partners and if they get on a professional can invite them back to the I Like The Way U Move house where they then have 48 hours to learn and perfect a dance routine together.

After that the new couple will perform in front of resident judge Kaelynn "KK" Harris, who will be joined by guest judges, such as Strictly Come Dancing professionals Oti Mabuse and Giovanni Pernice, to see if their connection is real.

If they make it past the first round, the dance-off, the couples then go through rounds of dancing, and if they are not eliminated by the judges and kicked out they win a trip to the popular dance destination Ibiza.

One of the professional dancers taking part in the show and looking to find someone special is Iestyn who is 19 and from Cardiff.

Iestyn has been dancing for 15 years with his speciality being street dance. He has performed in Wales and England in performances such as Lord of The Flies.

He also has a secret talent as he is very good at chess and was once third-best in Wales.

Admitting that he would date a bad dancer Iestyn said: “I’ve been single for a year and a couple of months now. I’d date a bad dancer! Who can go wrong with a cheeky two-step, you know?”

He also added that he had to be the best on the dancefloor: "I am competitive. If you try to smoke me on the dance floor – I can’t be having that. I’ll have to show you up respectfully.”

I Like The Way U Move will be available on BBC iPlayer from Sunday, October 17.
