The new series of First Dates is back tonight on Channel 4 with its latest series and more singletons looking for love.

Tonight, Fred Sirieix and the team welcome hopeful daters to the First Dates restaurant for the fifth episode of the twelfth series.

Maître d' Fred helps calm the single souls who are nervously hoping to find their special one - but who are tonight's singletons?

Those looking for love in this week's episode include two daters who are returning to the First Dates restaurant for a second shot at finding the one.

Recruitment consultant Jack, who's 27, is back. He's unwilling to change for anyone; will he measure up for 21-year-old hairdresser Shauna, or will she give him the chop?

Meanwhile, 86-year-old Douglas and 76-year-old Joan bond over a shared love of musicals, but Douglas faces competition from maître d' Fred.

Delivery driver Mark, who's 34, has been single for 10 years. He's tried every app but hasn't found a match. His date, Claire, who's 36, has never had a relationship but does have an unmissable laugh that attracts attention from the whole restaurant...

And social worker Becky, who's 36, makes her second visit to the restaurant. Last time, she fell for football-obsessed chef Leigh, but she was several inches too short for him, so she's back now and she's looking for a winner.

Will her date this time, blockbuster movie safety officer Dave, make Becky's mission possible?

First Dates 2019 airs at 10PM tonight on Channel 4.

You can watch past episodes online for free via the All4 Hub.

Meanwhile, a TV boardgame based on the show has been released.
