The stereotype of a bloke sneaking off from a date to ‘check the United score’ just became a real-life situation.
Here’s how Leigh became Channel 4‘s number one villain.
- Has waiter Sam Conrad left First Dates?
- Meet the cast of Eggheads 2019!
- Where is Britain’s Got Talent filmed?
Strike 1: Those Reds are losing again
With the date teetering along nicely, 36-year-old Leigh killed the mood of the conversation when he asked waiter Grant to check on the football score.
Specifically, “the United score”.
Lee: what a fool!!! She (Becky??) was very nice… you plonker #FirstDates

Strike 2: Lie to your date and give her a 6.5
With the United score racing through Leigh’s mind, he excused himself from dinner for a quick cigarette.
Fortunately, Becky didn’t smoke, which allowed Leigh to get on the blower to his mate, while she also phoned a friend from the bathroom.
Chasing up the scores, Lee opened up about his date by using the type of language that only earns plaudits from the likes of Lad Bible.
What a lad, ay!
Lee is 6.5 nethanderal. ! Becky is so pretty and lovely, dodged a bullet there! What an misogynist pig 🐽 ! #firstdates

Strike 3: Wish your date was slimmer
The fact that Becky didn’t see or hear any of Leigh’s snide remarks made the entire date much worse for audiences at home.
As far as Bekz was concerned, this guy was a bit of a charmer.
Nonetheless, viewers at home were praying waiter Grant would give Leigh a good slap as he once again dived into some misogynistic views.
A bullet dodged
Fortunately, First Dates fans breathed a sigh of relief as Leigh confirmed that he didn’t’ want to see his date “romantically again”.
A bullet dodged on Becky’s part, and Twitter couldn’t have agreed anymore.
Well Leigh I can see why you said you've ruined every relationship you've been in.
You're a grade A dickhead.
Becky deserved better than your ignorant ass. #FirstDates

Lee has actually ruined my night with his arseholery.
I hope Becky looks at Twitter and sees that the entire nation is in agreement that she is way too good for him.
She is also NOT a 6.5 – she is absolutely stunning!! 🤯 #FirstDates
