In order to make 2021’s Christmas one for the ages, Fred Sirieix and his team pull out all the stops to set the stage for Love this season, which is in need of replenishing. Mistletoe anyone?

First into the festive restaurant is 25-year-old Dan, a jobbing Father Christmas who, despite spreading joy each year, has struggled to sprinkle some magic on his own love life. Dan meets nursery worker and fellow children’s entertainer Sophie. 

Ready to get her festive flirt on is 21-year-old recruitment consultant Macy, who is looking to fill the permanent position of boyfriend this Christmas. Will 25-year-old electrician Sam be the angel she’s hoping for? 

Planning on making the most of the holidays this year is 29-year-old religious studies teacher Loy. After losing her father to Covid, Loy wants this Christmas to be 10 times better than last. Will supermarket manager Ryan prove the dream deal?
