It’s a reasonable compromise – you get your date, you get your dinner, and if you’re a bit camera shy, no worries. You will merely be a figure in the background.

First Dates Ireland was hugely popular so fans of the series should be delighted about the second series.

The production team behind the show are now looking for people to fill tables in the First Dates restaurant at the Gibson Hotel.

So basically it’s not the right call for you if you’re looking for a more central role where your date is broadcast to the country.

According to the call, background daters will get ‘a genuine first date in our restaurant-with-a-difference.’

Applicants must be available for filming between August 25 and August 31.

The deets and application form are here.
