First Dates is Back!

First Dates is back on Channel 4 with a brand new series in October.

Fred Sirieix and the team return to welcome hopeful daters to the First Dates restaurant for the fifteenth series.

MaƮtre d' Fred helps calm the single souls who are nervously hoping to find their special one.

In the opening episode, first into the restaurant is 24-year-old self-confessed party animal Nikita, from Swansea, who's hunting for someone just as wild. Enter Rhys, an engineer from the Welsh valleys known for his controversial antics on a night out.

But Nikita gets a little more than she bargained for when Rhys reveals a rather intimate tattoo to the entire restaurant.

Meanwhile, part-time fitness instructor and disco dancer Selvin meets Donna, who's looking for a man who can make her laugh. Former Playboy bunny Kelly-Ann is a model who's dated some A-list stars in her time and wants 'a daring man' to keep her feeling alive. Will motorbike daredevil Stephen and his many tattoos tickle Kelly Ann's fancy?

The new series of First Dates starts on Thursday, October 1 at 10PM on Channel 4, narrated by Brian Protheroe.
