Richard MillsExecutive Producer
Prior to joining Twenty Twenty, Richard’s career was firmly established in the entertainment sector having worked for both the BBC and ITV on ratings winners Strictly Come Dancing and Britain’s Got Talent, and C4’s Big Brother.
Joining Twenty Twenty in 2015 Richard has helped shape First Dates into a BAFTA award winning flagship show for Channel 4. After a period of paternity leave he was welcomed back to Twenty Twenty and played a key role in the huge success of the First Dates sister strand, First Dates Hotel. Set in a five-star Italian hotel the series takes all the captivating elements of First Dates and adds a series-wide ‘soap opera feel’, which has seen First Dates Hotel proudly step out of its big sister’s shadow and become a critically acclaimed hit in its own right.
He is currently working on the next series of First Dates Hotel where he looks to build on the success of the previous series, as well as developing exciting new projects at Twenty Twenty.
