Celebrity First Dates Hotel airs its first ever celebrity special on Channel 4 this evening.
Celebrity First Dates Hotel will form part of Channel 4's special Stand Up To Cancer programming.
The channel will once again bring stars from across the worlds of entertainment, music and sport together as they join forces to do their bit in the fight against cancer.
Nestled deep in the exquisite Italian countryside, the First Dates Hotel is about to open its doors to four famous lovelorn singletons as manager Fred Sirieix and his team of cupids roll out the red carpet for the hotel’s first ever celebrity special in support of Stand Up To Cancer.
Celebrity First Dates Hotel cast of celebrities
The four celebrities appearing are Duncan James, Ulrika Jonsson, Pete Wicks and AJ Odudu.
Duncan James arrived for his very first public date with a man last week. However, fate delivered a bolt out of the blue as he realised that he'd already met his match back home in London: Joao. Could these friends finally become lovers?
Meanwhile, one-time weather girl and 1990s pin up Ulrika Jonsson checks in for some much-needed R&R following the very recent breakdown of her third marriage. She admits that no man had made her laugh since 2005 and she is looking for a man to do just that. Ulrika's match is Bristolian businessman (and funny man) Paul who is also looking for love and laughter following a painful divorce.
The Only Way Is Essex Casanova Pete 'the Pirate' Wicks turns heads poolside. Never short of female admirers, he feels his bad-boy reputation is stopping any would-be partner from taking him seriously. His date, eco fashion designer Emily, is looking to meet a reformed bad boy. On paper this looks like a perfect match, but can Emily see beyond Pete's past?
Stunning TV presenter AJ Odudu checks in, nursing a broken heart. Repeatedly choosing work over romance, she's got into the habit of friend-zoning men who get too close and is notoriously bad at flirting. Her match is handsome six-foot mortgage broker and ex-model Duke. Is AJ's luck about to change?
Celebrity First Dates Hotel will air on Channel 4 tonight - Thursday, October 10 at 9PM.
Also confirmed for Stand Up To Cancer is a new celebrity special of Gogglebox.
Once again, some very famous faces will join Britain’s favourite opinionated viewers for a very special edition of the TV review programme as they pass judgement on a vast array of TV goodness.
In recent years the show has seen an amazing variety of celebrities share a sofa all in the name of charity; from Naomi Campbell and Noel Gallagher, Jamie Dornan and Nick Frost to One Direction’s Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson, Steve Coogan and Anna Friel and pop stars Olly Murs and Niall Horan.
Plus a new special of Celebrity Hunted has been confirmed as pairs of stars attempt to stay off the radar and remain at large for two weeks as a crack team of hunters try to hunt them down.
Channel 4's Stand Up To Cancer's season airs this autumn on TV and online via the All4 hub.
