The Bachelor UK is heading to its first final in over seven years.

The originally American dating show was dropped in 2012, when former Made in Chelsea lothario Spencer Matthews fronted as ‘The Bachelor’.

Now, a brand spanking new season of the series is underway, and hunky Aquaman lookalike Alex Marks has rattled down his 19 women to just three finalists.

Here’s everything you need to know about The Bachelor UK 2019 as it reaches its climax.

Where is The Bachelor UK Set?

The show may be bringing back its UK version but let’s face it, the UK doesn’t scream ‘dreamy romance’.

Instead, The Bachelor will take place in more than one location and will include various parts of South Africa, Antigua and the UK.

How Does The Bachelor UK Work?

The UK show will follow the same principles as the other Bachelor shows.

One man gets the opportunity to date a barrage of 19 women over various double, separate and group dates.

Each week he gives out a rose to each of the women that he wants to stay and eliminates the gals that he’s just not that into.

The last lady standing bags the prize of The Bachelor’s heart and they skip off into the sunset together (theoretically).
