The iconic dating show has been bringing people together from all around the country in the name of love.

Over the years, we've seen many couples come together in the 'First Dates' restaurant and more impressively, stay together. We've had Carla from Antrim and Shez from Louth who are now engaged.

But just like in the real world, dates don't always result in a love match. We've seen daters argue over misremembering names, endure awkward silences, disagree on whether they want a second date or not, and sometimes even outright ignore each other.

Once it's all in the name of love, it can never be in vain. You might find love where you least expect it. Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game. All the famous love quotes.

Seriously, what's the worst that could happen? Your date could have a crazy laugh or something but at the very least you'd be able to say you met the oh-so charming maître D' Mateo.

Fill out your application today to be in with the unique chance of meeting the love of your life for the first time on TV. It'll be a great story for the grandchildren.
