Channel 4 has announced a spin-off of First Dates that will see singletons enjoy meeting up in a hotel.

First Dates Hotel will see Brits looking for love potentially finding 'the one' in a brand new location.

Set in the French countryside, First Dates Hotel will let us viewers see just happens next...

At the end of each date, both halves of the pairings will be asked if they want to continue together.

This upcoming series will include a brand new format where if the answer is ‘Yes’ their stay will be extended in romantic hotel and French countryside.

And for some who don't meet with success on their first date, they will be re-matched for a second chance at finding love.

The idyllic setting will see both guests and viewers transported to the destination of their dreams with dates such as pool side lunches or a candle-lit meal under the stars.

Series Editor, Adam Chapman said: “Having worked across multiple series of first dates we're really excited to develop the format and take into a new space.

"The hotel, whilst retaining all of the charm of the restaurant series will give the viewer the chance to see first dates develop into second dates answering that eternal question 'what happens next'.

"Maitre-D Fred will be on hand as always to deliver a bespoke first date like no other. The First Dates Hotel will be the perfect antidote to the stresses of modern life; an oasis of romance where daters can concentrate on one thing and one thing only - finding love.”

Commissioning Editor, Madonna Benjamin added: “This is the ultimate First Dates experience with an exciting opportunity to find a partner in an irresistibly exotic location. It offers a delightful opportunity to date in a host of thrilling and highly romantic ways. “

A six part series of First Dates Hotel will begin on Channel 4 later this year.
