Valentine’s Day brought us new Netflix dating series Dating Around – and it has gone down a treat ever since!

The new reality TV series follows groups of singletons as they embark on five dates, tasked with choosing which date tickles their fancy for a second round.

However, there’s a slight twist…

All five dates have been spliced together, almost in the fashion of rounds. So, rather than following each date separately, you experience them in one go.

The casting for the show has proven top-notch, so let’s get to know the likes of Luke, Gurki and Jarry a little better.
