First Dates Ireland has proven to be a hit with viewers, so much so that 4,500 singletons have already applied to appear on the second series.

The first series is set to air its sixth episode on Thursday night and the first two episodes pulled in an impressive 250,000 viewers each.

The Irish version of the hit Channel 4 show has turned up a few characters, not least of which was South African model Daphney Sanasie, who appeared as Federica on the show but didn't quite hit it of with her date, Lee from Donegal.

There have been as many heart-warming as awkward moments on the show, prompting huge reaction from the public on social media.

However, it's not all positive, as last week's Cork lady Laura was trolled following her appearance.  The make-up artist was, however, flattered by comparisons to model Roz Purcell. 

Also Patrick stood up his date Ciara on the first episode while Gemma was not impressed to find that her first date was with someone she had previously dated.
