First Dates' star Kayleigh got a second chance of love with the Ray D'Arcy Show's Tinder on the Telly.

On Thursday's episode of First Dates Ireland, Kayleigh from Clonsilla was matched with Ian from Castleknock.

The pair didn't really hit it off as Kayleigh was forced to listen to Ian talk about asses throughout the course of their meal.

He started off on a bum note by asking an unimpressed Kayleigh if she had a nice ass and then continued to talk about asses. As you do on a first date. Charmer.

To make up for the uncomfortable date, RTE invited Kayleigh to the Ray D'Arcy Show to have a second pop at finding love in a special segment called Tinder on the Telly.

With Mairead Ronan playing a Cilla Black role, Kayleigh was introduced to eight lads who she could swipe right (for yes) or left (for no) on.

Buttsy from Waterford, Eugene from Clonakilty and Michael from Omagh had the looks to impress her and Kayleigh got the chance to know them better by asking them some Blind Date-style questions.

"What song would you play for Kayleigh on a date?” 

"Shape of You by Ed Sheeran because I’m loving the shape of you."

Kayleigh finally settled on Eugene from Clonakilty, who she said was a "ride", and the two were whisked away backstage for a special date.

And like all modern Irish love stories, the pair ended up going to Coppers with a load of lads and er... Ray D'Arcy.
