An episode of First Dates Ireland was shown in the UK last night and they had so many thoughts

Of course, the first dater was called Paddy Murphy.

FIRST DATES ABROAD on E4 gives viewers a chance to have a gawk at the Canadian, Australian and, occasionally, Irish version of the dating show.

Last night, the new series kicked off in the UK, and they led with the opening episode from season two of First Dates Ireland.

It featured Paddy and Lauren’s date as the main talking point

We weren’t really doing ourselves any favours on the stereotype front by having one of the daters called Paddy Murphy

Paddy himself was on Twitter holding his hands up on this one

A wider audience got to see Antonio lobbing the gob on Sinead

The Undateables? WHAT.

There were the usual jokes though

And people who couldn’t understand that we have different accents here

Lads.

This moment of rejection near the end was a tough watch

We can do awkward too

But at least it’s given all the contestants a brand new fanbase to tap into

But the real winners on the night were Irish people in the UK
