Who does the Five Guys a Week voice over? Channel 4 narrator used to date Danny Boyle!

Five Guys a Week is Channel 4’s latest dating show, which is a combination of some of their best reality TV shows to date. It takes elements of Come Dine with MeFour in a Bed, and First Dates to combine into one bizarre dating series.

The first episode kicked off on Tuesday, March 10th seeing 34 year old Amy Butterworth select Christian Sanderson out of all of the men. Every episode will introduce a new woman as the ‘picker’ and five new guys to date.

As is the way with these dating series, there is always a hilarious narrator to keep the show running. It’s made superstars out of Iain Stirling on Love Island and Andrew Maxwell on Ex on the Beach.
