Series 1, Episode 3 - Swiping Up

Yas persuades Lauren to try online dating. She resists, then cracks for a series of disastrous dates. She agrees to one more blind date but isn't ready for what Yas has in mind.

Further details

Yasmin thinks Lauren is too work-focused to enjoy life to the full - and now she's cleared things up with Declan, she should try using a dating app.

Lauren's not keen, but when Yasmin sets her up with a profile and she finds herself quite popular, she gives it a go. After a series of disastrous dates, she's had enough - she was clearly right to avoid this! But Yasmin won't take no for an answer, and sets up a double blind date for her and Lauren. And there's one more surprise for Lauren - the date Yas has set her up with is a girl.

Craig and Declan, meanwhile, are having an epic grudge match over the cleaning at the flat. Who will crack first - and who will win the game of bin Jenga?
