A Date with Fate



Esther McVey


Various astrologers (Jonathan Cainer, normally)


BBC One, 5 May to 12 June 1998 (28 episodes in 1 series)


Forgettable horoscopic quiz seemingly based on the Mr and Mrs principle.

Contestant Caroline Ely fills in the blanks for us:

Two members of the same family were on the programme. One was in a sound-proof booth and the other told Esther what they would say to a certain question. The questions were based on their star signs. Jonathan Cainer then came on at the end and gave you predictions based on a comprehensive chart analysis.

Theme music

Andy Blythe and Marten Joustra


The first half of the series aired at 10.05am while the second half of the series aired at an earlier time of 9am after Breakfast News.
