Social media has found a new hero.
His name is Freddie, and we adore him.
The star from First Dates episode two lit up the show following an incredibly awkward date with 22-year-old Rebecca.
To summarise his dinner date in three words; anxious, nervous, condoms.
'I basically just shouted condoms at you' #firstdates is amazing

1. Oyster Banter
Twitter was in love with Freddie’s top bantz.
After gobbling up his entrée of oysters, Fred-star confessed that he wasn’t feeling anything from the supposed aphrodisiac…
Watching #FirstDates and I would love to go on a date with Freddie i think he’s hilarious. ‘How were the oysters’ – ‘I’m not horny yet’ 😂😂👌🏼 top date banter

2. If Looks Could Kill
Star of the show, Freddie, forced his date into some seriously awkward glances.
Here’s a montage of our favourite Rebecca reactions from Freddie’s long list of puns and dad jokes.
The way Rebecca kept looking at Freddie though😂 #firstdates

3. Latex Condoms
The most awkward moment in Freddie’s date came when he explained to Rebecca that he was allergic to latex.
Freddie said that he found out through “ex-girlfriends”, implying that it was latex condoms that caused the allergic reaction.
Innocent Rebecca really didn’t catch on, however, and was left very confused as to what latex outfits Freddie’s ex-girlfriends were wearing.

4. Do I Talk Too Much?
Fred’s inability to hold his tongue was on full display at the start of the date, as he rambled and rambled about how he needs to stop leaning.
Repeating nonsense – remind you of anyone?

Some people found Freddie’s comments about how nice Rebecca’s hair was – because it had a hair clip in it – completely and utterly horrifying.
He’s only trying to make a compliment!
There is something slightly “worrying” about Freddie.

6. How Much Does a Polar Bear Weigh?
Enough to break the ice.
Unfortunately, no, Freddie didn’t open with that date icebreaker.
Instead, he made a joke on how mature he was, explaining how he would “mature his date under the table”.
Tbh I’d be more awkward around Rebecca than Freddie. He’s hilarious in a slightly odd way. Great icebreaker #FirstDates

7. The End Result
The couple decided not to see each other again, although Rebecca admitted that her date was “lovely” and that Freddie just needed to control his nerves.
Twitter wasn’t so kind when it came to giving an opinion on the date…
