Flirty Dancing: Meet the latest singletons looking for love in new dance dating show


Flirty Dancing continues it's brand new series tonight but who are the singletons looking for love?

Flirty Dancing is back with its second series this evening, Friday, December 6 at 8PM on Channel 4.

The show sees self-confessed romantic Ashley Banjo, play cupid using his skills as Britain’s best loved choreographer to bring people together through the art of dance.

Ashley, who rose to fame in Britain's Got Talent dance group Diversity, explains: "It's like a blind date, but rather than meet up with somebody and then do something more conventional like go to a bar or to a restaurant, you don't speak to this person...

"You'll hear the music start to play that you've been rehearsing to for a week, but the person that you're dancing with, it's the first time you've ever seen them, and you have a few minutes to dance with that person, to do a choreographed routine.

"Then, once it's finished you decide if you like them, what they made you feel like, and if you want to actually see them to go out on a second date."

If the dancers find there is a chemistry between them, they can decide to meet again. Will it be love at first dance?

In episode five tonight, Ashley devises a dance for 23-year-old dance-fit teacher Lily from the Isle of Wight and 22-year-old Jake, a dance teacher from Manchester.

Lily was born with smaller fingers on her right hand, which has led to her feeling insecure about dating, while Jake hasn't had a girlfriend for three years. Both need help to reboot their romantic lives.

Ashley creates a sensual, tender and intimate dance in a picturesque moonlit park overlooking the bright lights of London.

Meanwhile, Brighton-based single mum Briony meets Baz. Both of these fortysomething music lovers are looking for someone to share their lives with. Briony's sons are particularly keen for her to find love again, but she needs to learn to let someone in.

Baz has been single for the last 10 years due to his anxiety approaching women. Ashley choreographs a dance against the backdrop of the colourful coastal town of Portmeirion in Wales, complete with a challenging lift, that requires Baz to take the lead. Can they both throw caution to the wind and embrace the experience?

There are six episodes of Flirty Dancing. The show is next on next Friday (December 6) at 8PM.
