First Dates

Italian restaurant owner Giovanni, who’s 61, thinks he can give Fred Sirieix a run for his money on the charm front, but he’s been single for nearly 20 years. His date, 54-year-old glamorous plumber’s mate June, is looking for a man with big hands ‘to make her bum look small’. Italian may be the language of love, but can Giovanni’s charms convince June to share his meatballs? Tyrone is a 33-year-old prison officer with ADHD who’s been struggling to find a man with enough patience to take him on. He meets Jason, a retail manager who wants some fire in his life. Tyrone is a bundle of energy and struggles to sit still; can Jason see past his condition? Mental health worker Siona, who’s 29, hopes to bag her man using her two best assets: her front teeth. She meets 30-year-old beefcake Liam from Devon, who’s a bull semen salesman. Siona reveals a distressing event from her past, on a heart-warming and romantic date. Dental nurse Debbie, who’s 47, has one thing at the top of her romantic checklist: smell. Fortunately, her date, 51-year-old barber Chris, confidently declares that he’s never met a woman who doesn’t love his signature scent. Neither of them is experienced in the dating world, but will their date come up smelling of roses?
