First Dates has arrived with its fourteenth series in 2020, featuring new contestants looking for love and romance on the show.
On last night’s episode (Thursday, March 12th), the First Dates restaurant welcomed another batch of singletons for a round of romantic dinners.
One of the First Dates’ couples was Shannon and Zander. Are they still together after their appearance on the Channel 4 show?

Are Shannon and Zander still together?
No, Shannon and Zander are no longer together.
The couple was adorable together and their chemistry was there, but the two have decided to stay as friends after their appearance on the Channel 4 show.
Taking to her Instagram Stories today (March 13th), Shannon explained:
Went on First Dates on a whim two years ago, one of the strangest and nerve-wracking experiences – but so happy I did it! Zander and I still chat and we found a really great friendship through it.
