Wayne Lineker has officially been announced for Celebs Go Dating, alongside a whole host of famous faces.
The new series is returning to E4, and Ibiza club mogul Wayne will be among the line-up, alongside Love Island's Curtis Pritchard, Hollyoaks and Coronation Street star Kimberly Hart-Simpson and Geordie Shore's Chloe Ferry.
Also appearing will be Strictly Come Dancing runner-up Karim Zeroual, Made In Chelsea's Sophie Hermann and DJ Tom Zanetti.
But it's Wayne's appearance that has got everyone talking, following a rather controversial Instagram post he put out calling for a girlfriend recently.
For those who need a reminder, his specifications for a date stipulated that she would need to 'give up her career, not want children, be able to cook ready meals, love R&B music and not watch chick flicks'.
We're sure Anna Richardson and Paul Brunson will have plenty to say about that...
Check out Wayne's promo for the show, below:
On his upcoming stint on the show, Wayne said: "After being single for over two years, I am so ready to meet somebody I can hopefully spark a romance with.
"I've heard great things about the agency, and that Anna, Paul and Tom give sound advice.
"I'm excited to see the potential dates that the agents bring to the table, and hopefully learn a few things about myself along the way."
Taking to social media after the announcement dropped, one person wrote: "Can't wait to see Wayne Lineker (58) being matched with someone over 40. He's gonna have a meltdown".
While another teased: "Wayne Lineker and Tom Zanetti will be comedy".
A third wrote: "F*cking hell, haven't we suffered enough this year?".

In order to film the show during the pandemic, TV bosses have also revealed they'll haul the cast up together in a plush pad for four weeks while they were filming, alongside Paul, Anna and Tom Read Wilson.
"Celebs Go Dating is back and supercharged for 2021, it's bigger, bolder and sexier than ever," said E4.
"For the very first time, the celebs and their potential matches will all bed down together in one very plush mansion.
"There'll be dates, drinks and drama, and most importantly, there'll be nowhere to hide!"
It won't just be the celebs having a sleepover, though, as they will also be living in the same mansion their potential matches, who will be sent out on extravagant dates with them throughout the series.
The show adds: "Will the close proximity lead to committed couples, or romantic rivalry?"
"If our celebs find themselves in any illicit liaisons, they certainly won't stay secret for long!"
Ooooh, this sounds juicy AF. It's like Celebs Go Dating meets Big Brother...
Celebs Go Dating returns early 2021.We can't wait to see what Wayne and the rest of the celebs get up to.
Let's hope for Wayne's sake they find him somebody who likes Waitrose ready meals...
