Ex-East End market trader Dave, who’s 50, is first into the restaurant, hoping he can win his date over with some good old fashioned banter.
Although he’s 6′ 4″ and 18 stone, Dave says he’s ‘150% a mummy’s boy’. His date is 44-year-old Sara, who wants to meet a ‘proper East End geezer with a cockney accent’ – as they know how to treat a girl. They immediately hit it off. But how will Dave react when Sara reveals that her last marriage lasted only five days?
Also at First Dates restaurant is Ruth, a very confident dater, who admits she can often get sassy after a few proseccos and might ‘eat her date alive’. But larger-than-life bricklayer Asher will be hard to swallow, and the date gets off to a fiery start.
First Dates – Thursday at 10.00pm on Channel 4.
