The trailer begins with a pretty brunette dropping a bag of eggplants on the ground as host Laura Whitmore, clad in a sizzling red jumpsuit, sounds the alarm.
Laura, 36, looks sensational in the plunging ensemble and aviator sunglasses as she struts herself down the street with a group of sexy singletons chasing behind her.
An incredibly buff tradesman sets his sights on a stunning blonde in a figure-hugging dress, before a hunky waiter pulls her away.
A fireman attempts to hose himself down, while another hunk, rips off his vest to reveal his six-pack abs.

Series seven of the popular ITV2 show kicks off this June, with builders recently seen working at the Majorcan villa usually used for the show.
The new tag line for the show, “This is not a drill”, comes after last year’s season was postponed due to the pandemic.

ITV have yet to make an official announcement about where the dating show will be filmed, though a source recently told The Sun: ‘Love Island bosses are determined to return to the villa this summer and have worked hard to make it happen.
‘Although they are confident the series will go ahead in the original location, there are still concerns over rules suddenly changing. However, at the moment it’s looking good.’
Signs are also on the site, according to eyewitnesses, speculating coronavirus safety measures.

Love Island has had ‘more applications than ever’ with over 1,000 singletons already interviewed amid the show’s current selection process for the 2021 series.
ITV commissioner, Amanda Stavri, teased the upcoming series in a new interview and revealed that the team are all ‘very pleased’ with the potential line-up.
Speaking to RadioTimes, the Love Island boss said: ‘There’s been more applications than ever. They’ve whittled it down and we’re all very pleased.
‘We’ve got a big sort of pool at the moment and we need to sort of work out who to put in the opening line-up and who sort of to hold back, you know as a bombshell – we need the bombshells.’
Elsewhere during the interview, the ITV commissioner promised the 2021 line-up will be ‘diverse and inclusive’.
Arrival: They appear shocked as voice over artist Iain Stirling also makes his presence felt
Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez recently confirmed that British holidaymakers can enter the country, which is currently on the government’s amber list, meaning that travel obstacles for the show have been lifted.
Contracts for this year’s Love Island did have Majorca written into them, although back-up options, such as Jersey and Cornwall, were on the table in case Covid travel restrictions meant Spain was off-limits.
Sanchez said at the Trade Fair Fitur in Madrid: ‘I am pleased to inform you that the ministerial order will be officially published today exempting citizens from the UK from temporary restrictions on non-essential trips to Spain.

‘I can therefore announce that from next Monday the 24th of May we will be delighted to welcome all UK tourists.
‘They are welcome to enter our country without restrictions and without health requirements.’
The summer series of Love Island 2020 was cancelled after production found it ‘logistically impossible’ to organise the show as the pandemic raged on.
Applicants for the next series have reportedly been told they’ll have to be free for 10 weeks abroad and undergo a psychological and physical assessment.
