THE Love Doctor is organising a “love bus” to take the city’s singletons to the world’s first Singles Expo.

Monti, whose real name is Neil-Monticelli Harley-Rüdd, runs a dating service called to help single people find true love.

The 52-year-old, who lives in Brighton, has joined forces with Angela Watson, founder and creator of The Dating Show Live, to help people from all over the UK find romance.

This event is the world’s first expo for singles to mingle and it will take place at the NEC, in Birmingham, on June 29 and 30.

Monti said: “Angela approached me to help her with the Dating Show Live. She asked if I could host an Arabian night or Caribbean party event at the expo.

“I came up with the idea of a Love Bus. We have teamed up with the bus company, National Holidays.

“We will be taking people on a coach from all over the UK, including Brighton and Hove, to go to Birmingham. The number of buses heading to the Live Dating Show will depend on the number of people who sign up for the Love Bus.

“I strongly encourage people to go to the expo, meet people face-to-face, build up confidence and find true love.

“There will be lots of events at the expo and it’s a chance for people to do things together. Some of my clients have already said they are going on the Love Bus.

“If a client asks me for help, I take the responsibility and trust seriously.”

Ms Watson, who lives in Northamptonshire, said: “I wanted to make a different event so people can have the opportunity to meet in person.

"A lot of people sit in their homes and just swipe their phones and expect something to happen.

“There are plenty of things people can do together, like mini golf, live music and advice from professionals. Singers like Sheila Ferguson will be there.

"There will also be a couples corner where Monti will be matching people. It's really for people from all ages. We even have people aged 70, who haven't given up on true love, coming to the event.

"The expo is supported by the Dating Show and there will be people from all walks of life coming to the event.

“It’s about connection and chemistry. We expect about 5,000 people to turn up each day.”
