Who's presenting the series?

Secret Crush will be presented by comedian Verona Rose, who will oversee the romantic declarations from participants. Verona is best known for being part of a comedy duo with Donna Preston.

Teasing the new series, Verona said: “We had snotty noses, lots of crying and some really dramatic confessions. Dental nurses being surprised by clients, a dater revealing for the first time his drag queen alter-ego and a glamour model explaining patriarchy to her crush. On one date, the girl was like ‘what do you mean, I thought you liked guys? Why have you brought me on here?’ It was a bit of a shocker.”
