Gogglebox star and TV presenter Scarlett Moffatt is hoping that martial arts fighter Tommy will prove to be full of banter and happy to see her `without her fake tan on'.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

You might not imagine that Ronnie Wood’s ex-wife and a Britain’s Got Talent winner would have much in common when it comes to celebrity love troubles – but they do. Jo Wood says men only want to talk about the Rolling Stones when they find out she was married to one of them for 26 years, while Ashleigh, who won BGT in 2012, says men are more into googling videos of her dancing dog Pudsey than learning about her.

The highlight of the episode is Gogglebox’s mouthy Scarlett Moffatt who declares she wants a man who talks as much as she does – yet when she’s paired up with a chatterbox who tells an extraordinarily long joke involving a pack of cards, she hastily rethinks her dating wish-list.
