Six single men and seven women will enter the Retreat in S2 of My Mum, Your Dad, hosted by Kate Langbroek.

The kids have the power to influence all the dates from the Bunker across the road. The influence starts with gaining vital intel about who all the singles are, then deciding who the first-date couples will be. And who to send home.
The series is produced by ITV Studios Australia for Nine.
