Further details

Johnny Vegas and friends offer an uproariously silly, insightful and frank look at the difficult business of finding love in the 21st century: first dates, online dating, text etiquette, dating disasters and inevitable heartbreak. How to meet, where to go, what to do, what not to do, and all the Tinders, Grindrs, hook-ups and chat-up lines in between.

What is the most outrageous chat-up line Arg from TOWIE has ever heard, that still makes him laugh like a maniac to this day? What is the worst place Jamie Laing from Made in Chelsea has ever taken a girl on a date? Who said that they would like to bite Vanessa Feltz? Who reckons paintball is the best place for a first date? And who tried to come over all suave like Don Draper from Mad Men, with disastrous consequences?
