E4 orders teen version of First Dates

A version of First Dates featuring teenagers is to air on E4 in 2021.

E4 has announced plans for a teenage edition of Channel 4's popular First Dates for broadcast next year.

First Dates: Teens will see the show's Manchester restaurant open its doors to singletons aged between 16 and 19 looking for love.

"We'll be creating a warm and welcoming space for them to meet new people and hopefully make a connection," said resident maitre d' Fred Sirieix.

"Most importantly, we will be looking after them like our own and will provide a space where they can just be themselves without any distractions from the outside world, or their phones! It's going to be so much fun and I can't wait to get started!"

E4 controller Karl Warner added: "We're thrilled to have First Dates: Teens on E4.

"We want to showcase the full range and diversity of teenagers in the UK today, the way they feel about dating, and what they make of the world around them – COVID, Brexit, Nicki Minaj.

"It's entertainment with depth, and a great example of the surprising, funny and heartfelt TV we love at E4."

The six-part series has been filmed in coronavirus-safe conditions, with all dates taking place under the specific government guidelines in force at the time.
