First Dates: The best reactions to Ireland's new reality TV show
Published 21/04/2016 | 22:54
Its British counterpart is one of the most-watched reality shows... so will the Irish version gain the same cult following?
Expectations were high tonight and viewers were rooting for their favourites (mostly Wexford lass Amy).
Yes, some people did find love, and, yes, some people did recognise a few faces on the television from Tinder.
Even Dragon's Den chief Gavin Duffy had something to say.
Here were some of the best reactions to the show's premiere online.
