Fred Sirieix and his team escape the bright lights of the city for the romantic beating heart of the British countryside in a dreamy, festive special episode. In a location inspired by the nation’s favourite festive romcoms, singletons from across the UK head to one of the cosiest pubs in the country to receive the perfect Christmas gift of love. And, bringing an extra sprinkling of Christmas magic, some of First Dates’ biggest success stories return to spread festive cheer and share some big news, with the night coming to an end with a very festive lock-in! Former bodybuilding champion and social media influencer Kieran, who’s 25, has never been in love. His Christmas wish is to find a real-life Barbie who can see past his six-pack and appreciate him for the kind soul he is. Can 23-year-old student nurse Abi unlock Kieran’s heart? Determined to pull more than a cracker this Christmas is 67-year-old divorcee Suzy. With a soft spot for Fred, she’s far from ready to give up on love and all the trimmings that go with it. Fellow divorcee Stuart is also looking for some excitement in his life, but is he the Christmas present Suzy wants to unwrap? And 30-year-old single mum Amy wants a man who accepts her fake tan addiction. When 29-year-old fellow Geordie Scott walks in, Amy seems impressed, but will he make her Christmas wishes come true?
