The show where you get to watch the awkwardness of a first date unfold all from the safety of your own couch returns for a new series.Tonight we meet choir master Jay who hopes to move on from a homophobic attack that left him having to learn to walk again, and hopes investment banker Robbie will accept him for the person he is.

We also meet twenty-eight-year-old property manager and glamorous burlesque dancer Becky who goes on a date with Bristolian Lewis, a budding comedian who is tired of the single life.

Pretty soon we'll be watching all this on Irish TV too as First Dates Ireland arrives on RTE shortly, which we are probably unreasonably excited about watching.
