DailyEdge.ie rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow.

First Dates Ireland (RTÉ Two, 9.35pm)

Other singletons up for romance are a three-times engaged interior designer, a salsa-dancing tax accountant, a bubbly children’s entertainer and a Limerick guy with a girl’s name. Intriguing.

Flirty Dancing (Channel 4, 10.00pm)

Sorry, so essentially this is a dating show in which a member of dance troupe Diversity pairs up two people and makes them dance in the hopes that they’ll ride each other? Ashley Banjo pairs up dance teacher Daniel from Bath, who is lost for words when it comes to dating and media student Tatijana from St Albans, who has never been in a relationship.

Ár gClub (TG4, 8.00pm)

New series. A year in the life of four GAA clubs, beginning as the supporters of Cumann Caide na Gaeltachta travel to their All Ireland semi-final match against Moy Tír na nÓg from Tyrone. In Conamara the Liam McCarthy Cup arrives at CLG na Piarsaigh clubhouse as their under-eight team begin their first training session of the season, while preparations begin on and off the field at CLG Na Dúnaibh, as they will host the Comórtas Peile na Gaeltachta finals in June.

Everyone’s talking about: Brian McFadden

There’s speculation that the former Westlife star might pull out of Dancing On Ice after dislocating his shoulder and injuring his back early on in the series.

A spokesperson for the show has since responded, saying: “Brian has a bad back and is currently being monitored by our show physio.”

Guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens on Sunday!
