Episode 3: First Dates

Summary

In a first for the restaurant, mum and daughter Maria and Charlotte arrive for a double date. Maria meets Steve, a divorced 46-year-old builder who has a saucy way with the ladies, while Charlotte is a single mum looking for a man to heal her broken heart. Thirty-year-old academic Dan is matched with cancer cell biologist Jemma from north London, and other diners include long-distance lorry driver Paul who meets Brummie rocker Rozie.

Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Death, capitalism and banks are just a few of the light-hearted topics that academic Dan brings up during his date with scientist Jemma. He describes himself as an “acquired taste” and there are certainly a few sharp intakes of breath from across the table. But as is often the way with First Dates, it’s the more experienced, slightly older singletons who have the really wonderful conversations.

Paul, 46, bonds with music-lover Rozie over Metallica before revealing that he was homeless after leaving the Army. With humans like this, Channel 4’s show could never be boring.
