Teen First Dates will return to E4 for a brand new second series – and applications are open now.


Teen First Dates features young singletons who are all looking to delve into the sometimes-choppy waters of dating and love by going on their first, first dates.

The spin-off from Channel 4’s hit First Dates will see the famous restaurant open its doors to teens aged 16-19, who’ll experience the thrill of a real-life, face to face blind date.

Following its first outing earlier in 2021, a second series of 20 new episodes has been confirmed.

Each episode will feature a number of brand new teen first dates, from initial impressions, through all of the awkward, heart-warming and funny moments, to the all-important question – is a second date on the cards for the hopeful teens?
