A couple who met on First Dates will be the first to marry having found love on the hit Channel 4 show.

Victoria Wills (29) met 39-year-old Scott White after the pair were matched on the show and the couple hopes to marry in 2016.

“I add numbers up all the time to see what they come to and I use them as signs as good omens and bad omens,” said Executive Assistant Victoria speaking to The Mirror.

“When First Dates called and said can you go on a date in two weeks time, I very quickly worked out the numbers in my head and all the numbers aligned and obviously all the numbers did align that’s why we’re here.”

“I do the opposite to most people when it comes to dating people try and present themselves in their best light and hope that someone will fall for them whereas I think I’ll just be really honest and then if they still like you you’re on to a winner because they know you’re a little bit crazy but they still like you.”

The couple was invited to return for the show’s Christmas special, which he decided was the perfect place to propose.

Scott said: “I hadn’t had a chance to get a proper ring but I really wanted to do it in the place we met.

“Hopefully in years to come we’ll have our first date to watch but we’ll also have the proposal and we can show it to our kids in the future.”

Victoria said: “The ring is absolutely beautiful and not edible this time, although I have kept my Haribo ring as that’s obviously a lovely memory.”

The episode will air on Channel 4 next Thursday.
