After the treat that was the celebrity series, Cupid has been busy sharpening his arrows and is now taking aim at a new raft of singletons about to walk through the restaurant doors on the latest series of Bafta-winning First Dates. On the menu in this episode are five pairs of delightfully hopeless hopefuls. Billericay Podiatrist Felicity puts her best foot forward and meets handsome city boy Jethro, who describes himself as 'Marmite'. Both have strange dance moves - this could just be a match made in weird heaven. Twenty-four-year-old Irishman Damian has Tourette's, and believes this is the reason he has yet to find the man of his dreams. It falls to part-time model Kai to see past Damian's disability - he's a sucker for an Irish accent. At the ripe old age of 79, history student Joe wants to prove that love is not a thing of the past.
Ten more despairing daters look for love in British television's most famous restaurant. Maître D Fred and his team of cupids serve up a BAFTA-winning feast of laughs, tears, surprises and moments to melt the iciest of hearts. Twenty-one-year-old best mates Josh and Jack descend on the restaurant for what proves to be an unforgettable double date. The most eligible lads in Croydon are after a pair of 'absolute stunners' and aren't short changed when they meet Morgan and Jasmine. But when both boys fall hard for the same girl, their bromance is tested to its limits. With her mantra 'stilettos or trainers', hyperactive Sandy's passions are keeping fit and drinking champagne. The divorced mum-of-two may have recently climbed Everest, but her biggest challenge might just be in the form of scarlet-trousered astrology expert Steve.
Fred and his team strive to turn ten more lovelorn singletons' dreams of romance into reality. Wine connoisseur Jack has always had a taste for the finer things in life. When he was asked at school what he wanted to be when he grew up, he borrowed his 'great uncle Arthur's top hat and came in as a millionaire'. His date, 18-year-old It girl and self-proclaimed bitch Kim, also enjoys the high life, hobnobbing with the likes of Prince Harry in her family's West End bar. Is their shared love of fois gras and fizz the perfect First Dates cocktail? Terry - the cheeky East Ender whose last visit to the restaurant hit the skids when he couldn't remember his date's name - returns. And his date this time, formidable hairdresser Levana, is unforgettable. 'I haven't had a grope for so long it'll be like Madonna's Like a Virgin: for the very first time!', she says.
Fred and his First Dates team feed and water more budding relationships in the hope that love will blossom. Twenty-six-year-old Welsh receptionist Kirsty has high expectations for her date with six-foot Essex funny guy Oliver. Pint-sized powerhouse Kirsty wastes no time in telling Oliver that she wants marriage and kids very soon. Undaunted, party boy Oliver goes on the charm offensive. Could Kirsty tame his wild ways? Twenty-five-year-old part-time DJ Tom struggles with confidence away from his decks. He's matched with Classics student Olivia, who's been told she looks like an edgy librarian. It's Olivia's first ever date and she's never had a boyfriend. Can Tom overcome his nerves to make it to a second date?
Summer may be over, but cheeky Frenchman Fred has been working overtime down at the First Dates restaurant to make sure the autumn and winter months are filled with love, fun, frolics and the odd faux pas. Charlie, who's 25, is searching for his perfect 'unicorn' to fit his 'hot, crazy matrix', but with his sights set so high, he's yet to find his holy grail. Public relations whizz Lorna seems to tick all of Charlie's boxes, but her love life has yet to match the success of her corporate career, and when Charlie tells her that he's looking for a unicorn, the date hangs in the balance. Olympic Team GB bobsleigh athlete Jordan is often surrounded by fit ladies; he loves them and they love him, so he's slightly torn over his decision to turn over a new leaf and start a relationship.
Fred and his team welcome more singletons who are hoping to change their lives. Thirty-eight-year-old meat-loving teacher Marie is so worried about failing to find Mr Right that verbal diarrhoea always get the better of her on dates. Can she keep her sledgehammer wit in check when she finds out that her date - 36-year-old teacher Davin - is vegan? In the past, 64-year-old self-confessed cougar Lynda says she's been partial to the allure of the younger man: 'My rule is I would never date a man younger than my youngest son.' But now Lynda wants to find a more mature man who shares her lust for life. Her date is former rock 'n' roll roadie Chris, who feels a decade younger than his 65 years, and is no stranger to female attention. Like Lynda, 61-year-old retired hair salon owner and flamboyant millionaire Philip also loves the younger man but is keen to change his ways.
Fred and his team at the First Dates restaurant feed and water more budding relationships, in the hope that love will blossom. Twenty-six-year-old personal trainer Kriss uses his bulging biceps to attract the ladies, but a cheating ex has left him with trust issues and a desire to find a lasting relationship. He's looking for someone confident and smoking hot that he can share a conversation with. Confidence is no issue for 18-year-old beauty therapist Ruby. She's been on a lot of dates, but they've all been with 'bad boys'. When Kriss reveals his sensitive side, will Ruby follow her head and plump for the 'good boy' or follow her heart and revert to type? Retired secretary and all-round lover-of-life Patricia is 'a young 80 darling!' She's embarking on a bucket year, which includes a search for a new partner.
Will sparks fly when 38-year-old teacher and self-confessed cougar Marie returns to the restaurant for a date with 32-year-old lighting technician Adrian? Twenty-five-year-old sports enthusiast Stephanie is winning on the tennis court but losing at love. Her twin sister has a boyfriend and uber-competitive Stephanie needs a plus-one for a family wedding. Will it be a match made in heaven when she meets the equally competitive Stuart, a former rugby player turned city boy? Seventy-one-year-old Janet and 87-year-old former soldier George are both craving bedtime antics. Saucepot Janet wants a man with hair that she can run her fingers through in bed. They bond over their shared love of travel and even joke about jetting off to Venezuela together.
