Badoo is the latest dating service to venture into the world of podcasting with a new show that takes an honest look at the highs and lows of modern romance. “The Truth Flirts” is an eight-episode series hosted by Melanie Brown, aka Mel B or the Spice Girl formerly known as Scary.

Speaking to the British newspaper The Independent, Brown revealed that she doesn’t currently use dating apps because she is “perfectly happily single” but that she finds the concept “fascinating.”

“I was on a dating app a couple of years ago but that was because my friend set my profile up as a joke,” she said. “It was a picture of me and my friend and I would scroll through it on a Thursday or Friday night and see how people reacted. It was fun at the time. I understand why people find it quite addictive.”

The Truth Flirts takes a deep dive into 21st century dating. Brown is joined in each episode by a panel of celebrity guests who share their honest opinions on subjects ranging from parenting, to polyamory, to politics and even Botox. The lineup features musicians, activists, influencers and reality TV stars, including Megan Barton Hanson, Daisy Lowe, Amy Hart, James Locke, Chidera Eggerue and Calum McSwiggan.

Brown believes her ultra-honest attitude will make her the perfect host for the podcast.

“Being honest is probably one of the things I’m best known for, so I jumped at the chance to work with a brand like Badoo,” she said in a statement. “As a single woman who loves a chat, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to discuss all things love and dating with the amazing panelists on the podcast. I hope the series encourages fellow singletons out there to be upfront online and embrace the things that make you, you, when meeting new partners.”

Badoo’s chief marketing officer, Dominic Gallello added: “Badoo is all about dating honestly and we wanted to create a platform that lets us champion those that do. We wanted to prove that there is no reason to hide away from the things that make you who you are — that’s what makes the dating game so fun and exciting. With this podcast, we’ve given our incredible host Mel and her guests the platform to be brutally honest, and that’s what Badoo is all about.”

The Truth Flirts is available through Apple Podcasts and all other popular podcast providers. For more on this dating service you can read our Badoo app review.
