Elaine and Steve, First Dates Valentines Special

As lovers week comes to an end and chocolate and flowers return to an affordable price, everyone at the First Dates restaurant is still very loved up in the show’s valentine’s special.

Azedeh suffers from the misconception that she’s materialistic but wants to show that there’s more to her than meets the eye. Her date is techenthusiastic Ollie who bounds into the date and bowls her over from the off. And a mutual love of pina coladas and unorthodox dating venues sends these two into a Valentine’s frenzy.

Comedian Vince has rarely received Valentine’s cards from anyone other than his mum but could this all change when he meets Brigitte Bardot lookalike Anna? Retired NHS councillor Elaine is making up for lost time. She sacrificed her love life to bring up her daughter, but is now looking for a gentleman who can sweep her off her feet – music producer Steve has all the right moves but with the chemistry last?

Peter described himself as an ‘asexual Asian nerd’ at high school, where he threw himself into his studies to avoid confronting his sexuality. Having built his confidence, he’s now looking for a man to fall head over heels in love with. Gregor is a tall, confident German shoe manufacturer with a love for all things inappropriate, peter’s clearly impressed with Gregor’s looks but will his personality match?
