There's going to be a second Take Me Out CELEBRITY SPECIAL.

We're so excited we can hardly type.

Yes, King of the Love Lift Paddy McGuinness will be returning to our screens this Sunday in an episode featuring TOWIE's James "Arg" Argent, Olympic gymnast Nile Wilson and KISS radio presenter and Strictly Come Dancing 2016 contestant Melvin Odoom.

But what's even more brilliant about this particular show is that Arg's sister Natasha is going to be one of the 30 girls!

Arg says: "There's no way I'm going Fernandos with my sister!" And unsurprisingly, Natasha is the first person to turn her light off.

We think that's probably for the best!

A shocked Natasha says: "I am in shock. I was looking down and I thought, I recognise those shoes, then when I saw the dickie bow, I got the shock of my life. I didn't have a clue!"

You can watch Arg's trip down the love lift to Can't Take My Eyes Off You by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons here.

In a sneak peek of the episode, Arg tells Paddy and the rest of the girls: "I like natural looking girls, girls I can have a bit of banter with and a nice bum goes a long way. I've been single for around 6 months, I've had a few dates but nothing special."

He also makes an admission - Arg can't actually drive: "I can't drive, I just can't pass my theory test – I'm absolutely clueless. Anyone want to pick me up and help me get my love life in gear?"

Oh Arg...

We then saw Olympic gymnast Nile Wilson strut his stuff in the hope of getting a date. Coming down the love lift to Cheerleader by OMI and - rather impressively - he's not on his feet... But doing a handstand!

He talks through his career so far: "As a kid, I was so clumsy and always falling over so my parents took me to gymnastics class. I absolutely loved it and have been doing gymnastics ever since.

"I've trained so hard my entire life and my dream came true in 2016 when I won an Olympic bronze medal. I haven't achieved gold yet - however, tonight I'm hoping to find my golden girl."

KISS radio presenter and Strictly 2016 contestant Melvin Odoom then steps up to the plate. He comes down the love lift to 24K Magic by Bruno Mars and even more magically keeps all 30 lights on!

It turns out he's a bit of a mummy's boy: "I do have one main woman in my life and that's my mum, she's amazing. My mum is so excited I'm going on Take Me Out. Come on girls you've got to make my mum happy, keep your light on and join me in Fernandos."

His mum even says her piece on the show: "Melvin, for years I've been on your case to bring a good girl home. (To the girls:) Pretty please, keep your light on for my boy."

He then becomes a fitness guru, doing a routine to Push It by Salt N Pepa. Would you keep your light on for this?!

We spoke exclusively to Melvin last August before his Strictly stint where he hinted he may be looking for love - saying: "If a hot dancer wants to go out with me then I can't hold back the feelings. Who I am to hold back love? I'm just a human being."

That didn't go too well for Melvin, so we hope that he finds love on the Isle of Fernando's!

The Take Me Out Valentine's Celebrity Special will be on ITV on Sunday 19th February at 7pm.
