The First Dates Hotel in southern Italy welcomes more singletons through the door. Jamie is a 27-year-old salesman who wastes no time trying to get to know the female guests poolside. His date, 31-year-old Serena, is looking for a reformed bad boy after a history of dating disasters. Serena’s direct and strong manner has previously put men off, but Jamie is quietly impressed by her strong entrance. Sara, who’s 50, had her life turned upside down when she was diagnosed with breast cancer five years ago, and lost her career and her relationship with her long-term partner as a result. Her date is six-foot-two cycling fanatic and part-time model Peter. With shared histories of life-changing events, it appears that these two may be made for each other. Rose has lived with Crohn’s disease since her 20s. The 39-year-old has a stoma bag and her illness has made dating difficult. Rose has a ‘first date’ test in which she opens up about her illness over a meal to see if prospective boyfriends are put off. Will gym owner and single dad Jordan pass or fail the test?
