TG4's quirky new dating show Pioc do Ride kicked off last night and the first episode featured a particularly cringeworthy moment.

Each week a girl or guy chooses from three potential suitors based solely on their car (having rummaged through the glove box and the boot to gain insights into their personality.

However, the person they choose then has the opportunity to go on the date (to the value of €250) or head off into the sunset alone with a €250 voucher for their car from Advance Pitstop.

Last night's episode saw kickboxer Corey from Derry choosing between a boy racer from Kilkenny, an Irish dancer from Dingle and a smooth talker from Dublin.

Unfortunately, her choice, Liam, opted to ditch the date in favour of tending to his motor with the voucher.

Watch the awkward moment here:
