First Dates is back tonight on Channel 4 with a brand new episode and more singletons looking for love.

The brand new series sees the show filming in its Manchester restaurant.


In this romantic new setting, maître d' Fred and some new helpers welcome an array of single people who hope to be served the love of their lives with the help of some new and returning staff.

The 2021 series of First Dates airs on Monday at 10PM on Channel 4.

In tonight's show (20 September), first through the restaurant doors is 23-year-old Rory, a groundworker struggling to establish the foundations for a relationship. Rory meets 24-year-old Ella, who admits she is keen to find herself a husband.

Fifty-four-year-old former financial advisor Caroline is a self-proclaimed 'man-eater' who has been on 50 dates in two years. Will high-flying salesman Mowbray be the one to make Caroline settle?

Tattoo enthusiast Adam returns to First Dates hoping to romance 30-year-old single mum Laura, who is yet to meet a man who accepts she has a child.

Urologist Abi, a self-confessed 'dick doctor', may know all about the male anatomy, but realises her job can scare off some men. Will 35-year-old accountant Adam be able to see beyond Abi's job description?


First Dates 2021 airs at 10PM tonight (20 September) on Channel 4.
