The third season of First Dates’ match-making spin-off series, First Dates Hotel, kicks off on Tuesday night. Series regulars Fred Sirieix and his team return to play cupid once again. The premise of the spin-off is largely the same as the original series in that two strangers meet in a restaurant setting where they’ll decide over the course of the night whether they want to continue seeing the other person – what differentiates First Dates Hotel from its predecessor, however, is that the couple will decide whether they want to “check-in” to a room together.
The first episode sees glamorous police-woman Emma on the search for a gentle giant to fall in love with. Will bearded carpenter Luke be able to oblige? Classic Disney nostalgia comes to fruition as two of the hotel’s patrons recreate the iconic spaghetti scene from Lady and the Tramp while elsewhere the drinks flow at Andrew and David’s table.
First Dates Hotel – Tuesday 9:15pm on Channel 4.
