The second series of First Dates Ireland is continuing to prove a hit with viewers and for an hour every Thursday night we become thoroughly invested in the love lives of a bunch of randomers.

Sometimes they can be utterly daft, sometimes they can be way too sure of themselves and other times we get people who lay themselves bare to the nation with a story to inspire all.

On tonight's episode, that person is Carol, a power-lifter who went from eating six takeouts a day to losing six stone in nine months. Carol also told her date EJ how she only came out last year and cites the Marriage Referendum for her reason why, calling it a "life-changer" for her.

Watch a clip from the show below, while you can catch the full episode tonight on RTE2 at 9.30pm.
