Oh First Dates, how we’ve missed you!

Among the lucky celebrities who got to go on a first date with a stranger in front of the nation, was The Only Way Is Essex’s Jess Wright, Paralympic table-tennis player Will Bayley, actor Richard Blackwood, and TV presenter Esther Rantzen.

But it was a mere citizen that stole the hearts and minds of all… Esther was set up with a VERY Irish defence lawyer, John.

The 68-year-old was the absolute perfect gentleman, but broke our hearts

He and Esther spoke of their loneliness, and he admitted to having had his heart broken a few times.


He even had his ‘aul lad at the bar’ stance down

He was a bit shocked to be going on a date with THE Esther Rantzen

He was the height of chivalry

Basically, these two were absolutely adorable.

But he made up for it, like a true Irish man

There’s only one thing for it
