Actual sad face.

ANYONE WHO HAS been following Channel 4′s First Dates down the years knows that the true love story on show every week isn’t with the contestants – but with the obvious flirtation between waiters Sam and Cici.

And last night things hit a boiling point – because Cici was leaving early for a date of her own, but it wasn’t with Sam.

They signalled that she was going on a date last week and people thought it could be happening

And then at the end of the show, it happened. Cici came out for her date and Sam had to watch her leave

His face was a picture

A sad picture.

They just kept cutting to Sam’s face and he looked genuinely heartbroken

Car crash stuff.

Another waiter had even referenced their friendship earlier in the night

People had their hopes built up for a date, but no

Heartbreaking stuff

Cici even tweeted about poor Sam’s face when she saw it last night

We’re dealing with an Office-esque romance here

But we probably won’t be getting a happy ending at this stage

The people still have hope </3
