'First Dates' Gets Seriously Awkward After Exes Are Matched Up For A Date


The nation’s favourite blind date show is back, and the first episode of the new series landed with a bang.

First Dates is the show we all secretly love, because of its glorious mix of hilariously awkward moments and cute romantic match-ups. The hit show has returned to Channel 4 for yet another series, and it looks like they’re still finding awkward encounters to keep us all watching.

In this latest episode, it turned out that paired up couple Emma and Peter meet for dinner at the First Dates restaurant, only to realise they had in fact dated before.

It all got awkward because it turned out that Peter had dumped Emma by text. And blocked her on Instagram. Yikes. Emma arrived at the restaurant first, which was unfortunate as she quickly told her ex that she would have walked straight back out if it were she who had arrived second.

In all honesty, looking at the way the date panned out in the end, it probably would have been better if she’d pegged it as soon as she spotted him.

Lovable Frenchman and restaurant host Fred Siruex talked the pair into giving it another go, and sat them at their table. There was plenty of awkward conversation, but it all hit peak awkwardness when she politely asked him if he was still water skiing – to which he responded, “Yes, but obviously you can’t see it because I blocked you.”

Oh, crikey.

She didn’t hesitate to take the bait, hitting back and saying: “I don’t know why you went all weird” – and Peter telling her: “It wasn’t that but after the break-up you had a small dig at me, and I don’t do drama or confrontation.”

“I just think you could have done it in a better way. I don’t do text dumping”, she responded.

Could this get any more awkward? Unfortunately, the viewers had all taken Emma’s side at this point, along with their waitress.

The show producers gave us an important update about the pair:

First Dates is aired on Channel 4, Tuesdays at 10pm.
