The new reality series, which previously went under the name The Romance Retreat, will focus on single parents looking to get back in the dating game.
First-look footage posted to Twitter has teased tears aplenty with emotional moments between the show's first batch of contestants.
The clip kicks off with an emotional exchange with a woman saying "we are okay if you want to start dating again" to a man sitting next to her, who immediately bursts into tears.

It then moves on to see another woman say in voiceover: "I just want to give love and be loved" and a man saying he "misses coming home to someone".
Host Davina asks the man from the start of the clip if he is "worried about whether [he] is ready" to start dating, to which he nods and we see a series of joyous interactions between the contestants, from children laughing to one woman showing off her dance moves.
The clip ends with one man saying it has been 3t years since he has been on a date, before the premiere of the show is revealed to be September 11 on ITV.
Davina previously teased what fans can expect from My Mum, Your Dad on her Instagram page, describing the show as a "brand-new grown-up dating series".
"This is a show for single parents who have lived a life, have stories to tell about their dating pasts, and deserve another chance at love," she continued.
"I felt it was so important that I wrote to ITV 18 months ago and I said: 'You guys need to do a midlife dating show.' Also, I love Love Island," she explained.
"My original idea was to keep the Love Island villa going then to fly out myself with a load of midlifers who want to find love. I then wrote case studies about my friends with amazing backstories. These are people who have really lived a life and got to a point where maybe they have been single for years or maybe they just got divorced."
My Mum, Your Dad begins on September 11 on ITV.
