Series 3 Episode 4
First Broadcast: 9PM Thu 30 January 2014

This episode catches up with some memorable daters, including actor Sam, romantic poet Shaine, Richard, who has Asperger's, and self-confessed flirt and local hero Justin from Rugby.

Previously, part time actor Sam, who has Down syndrome, started a relationship with Jolene, but this ended and now he's re-entering the world of dating.

Shaine hopes his dreams of finding true love can be realised at a poetry class.

Richard meets 35-year-old charity-shop worker Lorien.

And Justin, who has neurofibromatosis, a rare condition which causes nerve tissues to grow tumors, goes to his first ever speed-dating event.
