The stars of the hit series First Dates Ireland are quickly becoming international stars as the series has been sold to networks in Australia, Canada and the UK.

The six episodes, which broadcast on RTE2 earlier this year proved a huge hit and are now being shown internationally, branded as First Dates Abroad.

The Irish version of the hit show has also been snapped up by E4 in the UK and has fared well with British audiences.

According to The Sunday World, the show’s charm has also captured the hearts of audiences on the other side of the world, as well as proving a national favourite.

More than 4000 people applied to appear on the second series of the show filmed in Dublin’s Gibson Hotel.

The new series of the programme, hosted by Croatian Mateo Saina, has already been filmed by the national broadcaster and is expected to debut ahead of next summer.
