“Carpe Diem” is 85-year-old Eric’s approach to dating as he tells Jenny he’s going to teach her Argentinian tango because of course it’s much more fun “with a lovely woman to hold”.
She’s up for it, although when Eric says it took him 20 years to learn to dance properly, Jenny points out she might not have 20 years left so they’d really better get going.
Millenials think dating is hard but it seems even more perplexing after 50 years of being married to other people first. How do you even begin to get used to somebody new?
Meanwhile, beauty therapist Eve from Bridgend in Wales takes a risk and reveals something surprising and emotional about her appearance. Her date – a Tom Jones karaoke enthusiast and self-confessed former “rogue with women” – has a brilliant reaction. As does Fred the French maître d’.
Welsh beauty therapist Eve meets rugby-loving teaching assistant and compatriot Jordan. She has alopecia and has never been on a night out without her wig, but a head tattoo generates a great reaction. Meanwhile, model Jade wows her fellow daters as she walks into the restaurant, but can business owner Adam live up to this tall, blonde single mum's exacting standards for the whole evening?
