"entertaining take on the obsession with coupling up"

I'm not really one for reality dating shows-with the possible exception of "First Dates"- but fans of the genre should find themselves happily diverted by Zaffre's biggest debut launch for 2020. Thirtysomething Amy thinks her long-term boyfriend is about to propose on holiday, but the swine has other plans and instead Amy finds herself on the set of a new reality show The Shelf. Along with five other women, Amy is dumped live on TV and must compete in a series of tasks in the hope of being crowned "The Keeper". An entertaining take on the obsession with coupling up and settling down.
