MATCHMAKING manager Fred Sirieix and the First Dates team are taking reservations at the First Dates Hotel for a new summer season of love in 2019.

The popular Channel 4 TV show sees the well-known maître d' take a break from the show's restaurant to take over the running of a luxury hotel abroad where he will welcome singletons from the UK on a two-day dating stay.

Last year the show was filmed in Campania near Naples in Italy.

Producers from the show help you find a partner from a pool of other singletons and captures the highs and lows of your first date on camera.

At the end of the meal, couples will choose to split the bill, go home alone or spend the next day with your date at the hotel's location which is yet to be revealed for this year's series.

A producer added: "We’re looking for singletons from across the UK to join us in Italy for a dose of La Dolce Vita as we match you on the most romantic date of your life.

"Each episode will feature a number of intimate first dates. In-depth interviews will help the viewers get to know the daters.

"Discreet cameras will record the date from start to finish - from first impressions, through all the awkward, heart-warming and funny moments, to the end of the date and the discussion about whether or not a second date is on the cards.

"If you’re single and looking for love apply now."

Your application will be received by a member of the production team at Twenty Twenty.
