Channel 4 TV show First Dates is returning for a new series tonight.
The always amusing reality show sees singles meet in the First Dates restaurant in London, as concealed cameras film their blind dates.
Ahead of launch, The Telegraph’s Theo Merz has written a piece talking about visiting the set and taking part in one of the blind dates, after giving the series a glowing review last year.
He said while it obviously felt staged, especially when they found a microphone in the vase of flowers, first dates always feel a bit staged anyway, with a general feeling of being on display.
First Dates returns tonight at 10pm, on Channel 4.
