Maître d' Fred Sirieix and his team will welcome hopeful singletons from across the country, and for one night only, some famous faces from the world of show business too.

At the restaurant, some of the daters will discover that they've been matched with a celebrity singleton who is also looking to potentially meet The One! We can't wait to see what happens!

First Dates Celebrity Special will air on Monday 12 October at 9pm on Channel 4.

The First Dates special will form part of a wider season of Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) programming, including a new celebrity edition of Gogglebox and special editions of Chatty Man.

SU2C is a joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4 to accelerate new cancer treatments and tests to UK patients and ultimately save more lives.
