The dating series that rattles our preconceptions tells the stories of three more singletons with disabilities that complicate their love lives. First up is 34-year-old Samantha who has achondroplasia, a type of dwarfism, and finds that being 3ft 10in attracts the wrong kind of attention. She’s looking for someone as gutsy as she is, but will it be James from New Zealand, or is rocker Colin more her type?

Office-worker Ray, 49, who has a learning disability, needs to get over the heartbreak of his fiancée leaving him. And 30-year-old supermarket worker Steve dreams of being able to woo a girl, but has a facial disfigurement – Crouzon Syndrome – that cramps his style.
