The Undateables

The Undateables

Series 8 - Episode 2



Stammerers all have their own personal sticky phrases and words, but an almost universal one is saying one’s own name, a moment when the gaze of those listening is inescapable. That makes dating hard, and it’s one reason why 22-year-old trainee accountant Nisar thinks he hasn’t yet found a partner. As the heart-lifting reality series continues, he’s trying to put that right.

Fatima is the same age as Nisar and has the same job, yet has a radically different personality: she’s a flamboyant fashionista who loves attention. She hopes to meet a man who can cope with that, and with the fact that she was born with achondroplasia and stands 4ft tall.

Also hunting for love tonight is Daniel, who has Asperger’s. He’s keen to be someone’s other half – it’ll help if they like listening to grunge on vinyl.


Trainee accountant and Bollywood fanatic Nisar has a stammer, but feels the time is right to face his fear of talking to girls so he can find a partner, while PhD art student Daniel has Asperger's and is determined to be in a relationship. Fashionista Fatima was born with achondroplasia, a common form of dwarfism, and dreams of meeting a man who will be proud to be seen with her.
