The show, produced by Viacom International, is looking for Islanders who have never had a video call (or met face-to-face) with somebody they have been speaking to online.
A ‘Catfish’ is someone who lures a person into a relationship by adopting a fictional online persona, a trend that’s becoming increasingly common in a world where many romantic relationships and friendships start via apps and websites.
Senior Casting Producer of Catfish, Viacom International’s Mark Johnson, said:
“I am making series two of the show which will be ten hour-long episodes for MTV.
“I produce MTV’s hit reality show ‘Catfish UK’ and I am specifically looking for residents of Isle of Wight to take part – I would absolutely love to have an entire episode filmed on the Island!”
