TV3 Pulls Blind Date Following Al Porter Allegations


Following a number of allegations regarding presenter Al Porter’s ”sexual misconduct”, TV3 did not show a scheduled episode of Blind Date this evening.

The television channel was due to broadcast a repeat programme of the show at 7.05pm.

A statement was delivered by a spokesperson earlier in the day mentioning: 

“TV3 is aware of the allegations made against Al Porter. TV3 takes any allegations of this nature very seriously and decided it would be inappropriate to broadcast the repeat of the final episode of Blind Date scheduled for this evening (Saturday 18th November). TV3 has no further comment to make at this time.” 

This news comes after Today FM announced that radio host Porter is set to “take some personal time” from his daily lunchtime radio slot.
