First Dates Hotel is back! Meet tonight's singletons looking for love in Italy...


More on

First Dates Hotel continues with its brand series tonight on Channel 4.

This time around, Fred Sirieix and his team head to the ultimate love hotel in sun-soaked Italy, where they're joined by new Italian staff: assistant manager Francesca, receptionist Michela and handsome waiter Francesco.

As always, An eclectic mix of singletons from across the UK check in to this new playground of passion for a slice of la dolce vita . Around the hotel pool, the guests speculate about who their match might be and excitedly eye each other up ahead of their blind date in the hotel restaurant.

In tonight's latest episode, if going on a blind date in a foreign country isn't nerve-wracking enough, imagine if your luggage - including your date outfit - gets lost en route!

Luckily youth worker Tom doesn't let that put him off his stride. With help from Sam the waiter, he's all set for his date with 23-year-old dancer Francesca, decked out in... a waiter uniform. Francesca's looking for a reformed bad boy who she can take back to meet her Italian father; can Tom impress her?

Meanwhile, international DJ Jo and her best friend, fashionista Sara, are accustomed to attracting younger men but are now looking for something more meaningful. Finger fungus, forgotten names and moving heart-to-hearts all feature in these feisty female friends' dates, with widower Dave and DJ Andy.

And 29-year-old Louise has checked in to the hotel as a last resort - her dad's given up on her ever finding a man and he spent her wedding fund on a posh car. So she's planning a wedding-themed 30th birthday.

But she still needs a groom...

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