Sounds mortifying, but it’s exactly the premise of RTÉ’s new dating show My Best Shot, presented by Republic of Telly’s Bernard O’Shea.

Four guys and four girls have to rely on past family photos to choose a date, eliminating the most dodgy as they go. The eliminated contestants then have the chance for revenge by showing the others their ‘Best Shot’ – a highly styled portrait taken by photographer David Cantwell.

The final couple are the only guy and girl to actually meet when their Best Shots are replaced by them in the flesh.

Here’s a clip of the girls getting dickied out for their Best Shots:
