One of the stars of First Dates Ireland has said the fame that has come as a result of the show has caused issues between him and his partner.

Mark Casey (40) appeared on the programme three weeks ago but has been seeing a woman since the hit show was filmed.

However, he said the recognition from the single women of Ireland has been the cause of arguments between the pair.

“I’ve been seeing someone since the show was recorded and before it was shown on TV,” Mark told The Sunday World.

“We went to a club together last Saturday night after I was on TV and there wwere some women who recognised me from the show and were coming up to me. That was an issue between us and it caused an argument,” he said.

“We’ve only seen each other four times, but I like her. I’m a secure person but I can understand her insecurities but I don’t know what the future holds.

Viewers were amused by Mark’s experience on the RTE Show, when he was paired with Gemma, with whom he had already dated several years before.

“Myself and Gemma both agreed that we got on really well but there wasn’t going to be a second date,” he said.
