The first Boyfriend/Girlfriend Exchange will be held on 15 January at the venue in Kentish Town. The dating experience concept is set to take place on a monthly basis in the capital. To gain entry, potential guests have been asked to tweet what a former partner has done that was ‘dumpworthy’.

Non-Twitter users will also be able to take part by writing their break-up anecdote on a ‘swap slip’ and submit it on the night. The most original story will win its protagonist a date night courtesy of Doing Something.

Matt Jones, Doing Something’s chief executive, said: "We’re looking at the lighter side of something that happens at this time of year anyway. 'We broke up because...' is a more popular Facebook status update in the two weeks before the Christmas holidays than any other time of the year."
