Further details

With Caledonian singletons embracing the brave new world of online dating, Pity Party dip their toes into the love pool out there but Kendra's not about to be wooed by these two. A good profile picture is key to internet dating and The State Of It introduces the revolutionary 'Bad Angle Blaster' to make sure your online pics match the reality.

Robert Florence and the team also consider the state of love at first sight; a couple have a romantic rammy when a death cult rings the doorbell; and a gran shocks her grandchildren with a memorable memento of their dear-departed grandad.

Comedian Susie McCabe gives her insights into dating etiquette; Robert's romantic poetry makes quite an impact; and the series gets physical with Nudey Attraction.
