    The most romantic day of the year is just around the corner, and with it comes Ben and Jerry’s Valentine’s flavour ice cream, Krispy Kreme Valentine’s Day doughnuts and Lush Valentine’s Day bath bombs.

    And if you’re looking for someone to spend future February 14ths with then you might consider signing up to everyone’s favourite dating show, First Dates. Producers are currently looking for singles to go along to the famous London restaurant in a bid to find love.

    TV bosses said in a statement: ‘Our award winning Channel 4 dating series, First Dates and First Dates Hotel, are looking for singletons searching for love.

    ‘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 looking for love, apply now by completing and submitting the following application form.’

    Sound like something you’d be interested in? You can apply here.

    But what do you have to do to get a spot on the show? You must be 18 or over and upload a photo and short video clip of yourself describing your perfect partner. You’ll also need to provide some details about yourself. Producers want to know about your job, body type, and height (apparently you’ve got to be between 3’11” and 6’6″), as well as your sexual orientation, marital status, and if you have children.

    They’ll also request links to your social media accounts – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.

    So why not give it a go? If nothing else, you’ll get to meet Fred Sirieix.
