It was back in 2013 when the First Dates restaurant originally opened its doors to singletons searching for their soulmate – and love has been at the top of the menu ever since. This trip down memory lane serves up a host of classic dates where eyes met, sparks flew, and love truly blossomed. In this episode, tweed lover Will, a dapper gent, meets fellow tweed admirer Fran. Bristol Rastafarian and single mother Ibiba meets fellow Bristolian Aarron, who drops a bombshell about his past. Octogenarian Doreen meets 86-year-old author James, who is more than ready to write the next chapter of his love life and make Doreen his leading lady. Former stripper Adam never expected to meet someone as like-minded as Geordie Dan. Lastly there’s Ajai, an accountant hoping to make his line of work ‘sexy’. How will that work for his date Hema?
