Review

Michael describes himself as “tall, dark and a handful”, which perhaps explains why, when his date Robyn tells him her age, he replies, “Oh! I thought you were older than that.” Ouch! That’s hardly a good start to a date, but you can never tell where these couplings are going. Elsewhere in the Hotel di Amore, the usually level-headed builder Richard asks his date, the mystical Carly, to marry him within 60 seconds of meeting. “It’s like I made you in the computer!” he says, because she seems so perfect.

But it’s 46-year-old perfumer Perry who’ll take your breath away when he parades past the pool wearing gold swimming trunks. Kylie Minogue he isn’t. Even so, Fred Sirieix is confident that Perry and his blind date will get on like a house on fire.

Summary

Maitre-d Fred Sirieix returns to the luxury hotel, where he and his matchmakers welcome singletons from across the UK. First to nab a poolside lounger is royal family-obsessed perfumer Perry, who's already turning heads in some natty gold trunks. He's on the scent for a man who can get the seal of approval from his beloved mum and dog Dolly. His match is 43-year-old art dealer Naveed, whose pre-date nerves could be his undoing. Single dad and builder Richard is trying to find someone he can resonate with on a spiritual level. Heartbroken after the breakup of his marriage, he's checked in hoping to restore his faith in love.
