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 thirteenth series.

MaƮtre 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 latest episode include PR exec Claudia, who's 26 and always finds one little thing - the 'ick' - that puts her off a guy. Will Claudia find any flaws in 26-year-old salesman Chris?

Retired nurse Kevin, who's 55, hasn't had a date in 30 years. Dripping in jewellery, he's hoping to dazzle someone who loves to dance as much as he does. Can former Top of the Pops dancer Louie, who's also on his first date in some time, make the right moves?

Computer fan James, who's 19, has never had a girlfriend or been on a date. Finally stepping out of his comfort zone, he hopes this could be the night he has his first kiss.

He meets 21-year-old arts student Emma, who has also never been on a date. Having cystic fibrosis has held Emma back from dating but she feels it's time to get out there.

Barry, who's 71, is a music producer who had a huge hit in 1979 with Amii Stewart's Knock on Wood. The rock star lifestyle affected his marriage, so now he's looking for someone to spend his older years with.

His date is 62-year-old Martine, a former member of 1970s pop group Guys and Dolls. Will Barry provide the glitz and glamour that she craves?

First Dates 2019 airs at 10PM tonight (December 10) 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.
