First Dates

First Dates

First into the restaurant is Madeleine, a 21-year-old post-grad student with a penchant for dad jokes. Madeleine struggles to find guys who stimulate her mentally, and would love to meet a rugby boy who’s marriage material. With her celeb crush being Tom Hardy, she’s setting her sights high, but then in walks Ewan – a rugby-playing Tom Hardy impersonator. Returning to the restaurant after a problem first date is truck driver Paul. His date is 50-year-old Tracey, a fellow Geordie who’s hoping to go on her last first date. But will she see past Paul’s ‘blokey’ exterior to the teddy bear underneath? Having been dumped just before her wedding, 35-year-old Sophie from York admits that she has a habit of picking the wrong men. She’s looking for a guy who can rock a man bun, but isn’t going to mess her around. Barbershop owner Danny looks good, but he’s flirting with the barmaid… Pub landlord Branislav has been single for over a year and loves to flirt. His date is Liam, who is looking to settle down and find his fairy-tale ending.
