Arriving in style for her big night out is 30-year-old accountant Tessa, who’s ‘looking for a giggle and maybe … love, marriage and babies’. Will dapper Jason prove to be one of the good guys, or just too much to be true? Next up is 36-year-old Mike, from Grimsby, a car enthusiast keen to accelerate his love life. He’s been single for seven years, and is matched with 29-year-old call-centre worker Zoe – a self-confessed ‘nerd’ who has yet to fall in love. Sexual health advisor Liza may know all there is to know about men – but that hasn’t stopped her choosing the wrong ones. With two daughters about to walk down the aisle, she’s ready to meet her forever plus one. Could Simon, a 53-year-old father of five, be Mr Right? Twenty-year-old part-time singer and make-up fanatic Saskia meets professional magician Luke. It isn’t long before Luke lays his cards on the table and the two open up about their feelings.
