The much-anticipated launch date for Frankie Bridge and Cici Coleman’s new podcast, First Dates: The Podcast has been revealed.
Every week, presenter and Sunday Times bestselling author Frankie and Cici, best known as a waitress from Channel 4’s First Dates will be joined by members of the public who tell all about their dating experiences, from romantic stories of love at first sight, to dating disasters of epic proportions.
Last month we reported that makers of the podcast, production studio Podimo and Twenty Twenty productions, were looking for people to take part. Although more are still being sought, the launch date has been set for 20 July.
Those lined-up to appear so far range from two singletons, one living in Manchester and the other in Poland, who share their story about meeting on Facebook and deciding to move in together after one romantic weekend getaway, to a blind date at a trampoline park that went terribly wrong, plus a single woman in her 40s who has started IVF process, figuring out what to say to her Bumble date.
Frankie and Cici also speak with disability rights campaigner, actor and writer Asta Philpot – best known for his documentaries such as BBC’s For One Night Only. He’s also known for inspirational films that spread awareness about sex and dating with a disability. The podcast reveals Asta’s loves love and dreams of finding the one – Charlotte.
First Dates: The Podcast will be available on all podcast platforms from Thursday 20 July.
