A prison officer from Kent is looking for love as part of a new BBC Three series combining dancing and dating.

Love Island may well be over for another year but those in the mood for more match making will be able to tune into another reality dating series on Sunday.

BBC Three's I Like The Way U Move will see professional dancers team up with rookie dancers as they compete to find their perfect partner both on and off the dance floor.

Strictly Come Dancing finalist and former Made in Chelsea star Jamie Laing will take on hosting duties alongside the show’s resident dance expert, Kaelynn ‘KK’ Harris.

Among the contestants will be Reece from Gillingham.

The 26-year-old says he is no stranger to the dancefloor but thinks he is better at flirting than cutting shapes.

He said: "I feel like I've got more experience with flirting.

"When I'm out clubbing it doesn't take me long to get on the dance floor. As long as there is a good beat and a good tune I'm away."

The prison officer describes his personality as "outgoing, approachable and polite" but also a "bit sarcastic".

Despite his confidence he has found himself single for around a year and a half.

"I've used dating apps in my past," he added. "It's more so going out and meeting people face-to-face.

"The number one thing I look for in a partner is their personality, you know their drive and just their charisma."

Choreographer 'KK' Harris will be joined by a new guest judge each week, including the likes of Oti Mabuse, Layton Williams, Giovanni Pernice and Maisie Smith.

Those determined to have the least chemistry on the dance floor will be axed each week in a Strictly-style elimination round.

An Ibiza trip lies at the finish line for those with enough spark to see off the competition.

The show will be available as a boxset on BBC iPlayer this Sunday.
