Know anyone who would be interested?

Have you, or someone you know, recently been involved in a messy break-up?

Is the mere sound a love song on the radio enough for you (or them) to suddenly become a bawling mess?

TV3 are here to help.

A new show on the station, the appropriately titled Heartbreak Hotel, will seek to provide expert, one-on-one, hands-on advice and practical tips to participants on how to get over their exes and how to get their lives back on track.

Presented by Maia Dunphy and Sara Davison, one of the UK’s leading break-up and relationship advisors, the show is looking to help a small group of individuals struggling to move on from a break-up with coaching and a customised road map designed to change one’s mindset from surviving to thriving.

Participants chosen for the show will be taken to a retreat where they’ll attend some group therapy and avail of some tailor-made therapy designed to help them turn their lives around.

After the retreat, participants will be urged to return to their normal routine, armed with practical and habit-breaking ideas that can be applied to real-life situations.


For the final part of the experience, participants will return to the retreat for a final session with the experts and hopefully leave with a fresh outlook.

Participants would need to be available for a two-day midweek retreat at the end of September and for another day’s retreat a fortnight later.

If you, or anyone you know, would be interested, then contact Terry at Midas Productions on (01) 634 3747 or by email at

Filming starts towards the end of September, so the sooner you get in touch, the better.
