If you’re looking for love and are sick of swiping away on Tinder, then we’ve got some good news for you

Both First Dates and First Dates Hotel are on the lookout for single people to take part in some new series.

Absolutely anyone can apply – as long as you’re over 18 – and you’ll be added the the show’s massive database of more than 350,000 singletons.

Channel 4

The application form reads: “First Dates and First Dates Hotel are documentary series which help contributors find a partner from a pool of other singletons and captures the highs and lows of first dates on camera. 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.”

The popular Channel 4 dating series is coming up north for its next series as well, with the show recently revealing it will be filming at a restaurant in Manchester.

The dating show is usually shot at the Paternoster Chop House in London, but will be moving Up North for its next outing.

The Paternoster Chop House is owned by restaurant group D&D, and while they also own 20 Stories in Spinningfields and considered it as a location for the series, apparently there’s not enough room in the back for the show’s production team.

According to the MEN, producers are thought to have checked out potential sites in St Peter’s Square and the Corn Exchange too.

ITV

Piers Morgan has racked up 312 Ofcom complaints over just four days on Good Morning Britain. 

On June 23rd, as his co-host Susanna Reid tried to read a statement from the Department of Health, Piers blocked her from doing so. This came after government ministers had boycotted the ITV programme for more than 60 days, refusing to be interviewed.

This clash received 221 complaints on the day, and the rest followed in the days after.

Piers interrupted her mid-sentence with ‘I’m sorry, why have we got to read this?’ and as she tried to continue to speak he said: “If the government won’t come on the programme, why should we read their wishy washy statement?”

“If they want to have their statement read, come on the show.”

Susanna then asked if she could read the statement and Piers replied with a firm ‘no’. He angrily said: “If they’re boycotting us, I am going to boycott their stupid little statements”. 

Despite Susanna explaining that he didn’t need to read the statement and that she would, attempting to read it once again, Piers put his fingers in ears and shouted: “Why should we read government statements if they can’t be bothered to come on the show?

“It’s not happening – not on my watch.”

According to Ofcom, there were a further 91 complaints spread over three other days, June 24th, June 26th and June 29th, with 62, 15 and 14 complaints on each day respectively.  

Piers has also been slammed by viewers for having a pint at 6:38am in the morning during the hosting of Good Morning Britain. 

According to Ofcom, he received eight whole complaints. Piers replied with an Instagram post captioned: “BOOM! First pint of Harvey’s in 4 months! Who cares it’s only 6:42am… and I’ve got 2 more hours of live TV.” 

But people were not happy with this response with one user responding: “Drinking beer while you are at work you should be sacked”.

Ofcom has received more than 200 complaints from viewers watching Shaun Ryder and Bez on Celebrity Gogglebox.

The popular TV show hosted a celebrity special with Happy Monday stars Shaun Ryder and Bez featuring on it. Since the programme started earlier this month, the TV regulator Ofcom has been receiving complaints regarding jokes made around drugs.

On last Friday’s episode, Shaun said: “My chat up line used to be, ‘Do you want a line?”.

They then went onto joke bout ounces and eighths when speaking about plans to reduce social distancing, with Shaun saying he didn’t know how far a metre was.

He quipped: “I know how many grams are in an ounce”, before Bez warned: “You should keep that knowledge to yourself, mate.”

They then went onto discuss their own experiences with drugs while watching the Al Pacino classic, Scarface. 

“When this film came out the cocaine in the country was absolutely sh*t,” Shaun said.

Meanwhile, Bez quipped: “If it was me and my first deal went like that, I wouldn’t bother again. It goes to show, don’t do business with people you don’t know.”

While many of the complaints were about Shaun and Bez’s drug comments, a hefty amount were regarding the lack of social distancing.

The production company, Studio Lambert, behind Gogglebox have altered the way they film the show by getting the cast to operate their own cameras.

Celebrity Gogglebox returns next Friday at 9pm on Channel 4.
