The First Dates spin-off show is onto its third series.
In the heart of Italy at the First Dates Hotel, we met 43-year-old Sharon from Essex.
Episode 5 saw Sharon meet Kenny, a car salesman who was from Essex, too.
But their hometown wasn’t the only thing the pair had in common.
We were introduced to Sharon as waitress Laura Tott caught up with her in her room.
Sharon said she just wanted to meet “someone cheeky like her”.

Sharon Meets Kenny Cars
Kenny or ‘Kenny Cars’ as he’s known, said he’s been single for years.
He said he goes home to his dog, Diesel, but he’d “love to be married and have someone there”.
Kenny also mentioned that he had a wife a long time ago and leaves us asking, what happened?
Kenny and Sharon’s First Date
Next, it’s time for the pair to go on their date.
We see Sharon, exit her hotel room saying some wise words: “let’s not trip over”.
Sharon pretty much gets lost on the way to her date before actually being rescued by Fred Sirieix and escorted to the restaurant.
Will someone get Sharon a map please?#FirstDatesHotel

Once the pair met and were seated, conversation quickly turned to their past relationships.
Sharon asked Kenny if he’d ever been married for him to reply: “Yeah, but that was a long time ago”.
Sharon said she hadn’t ever married but did talk about it with her late partner.
Sharon explains to Kenny that she actually lost her previous partner to suicide.
It was the hardest thing I’ve ever dealt with, ever, in my whole entire life.
The sales and marketing secretary then went on to ask Kenny why his marriage only last a year and a half.
To be met with a very awkward silence.
Kenny then replied: “Well, that was a while ago, so.”
Kenny Opens Up
After dinner, the couple moved outside to enjoy a drink under the stars.
Kenny then opened up about his previous marriage.
Kenny lost his wife to leukaemia and took care of her until she passed.
Kenny admitted he felt ‘undateable’ because he was a widow.
Did Kenny and Sharon Have a Spark?
Despite their tragic pasts Kenny and Sharon had a great date.
The pair were laughing all night.
So it’s no wonder that they agreed they’d like to see each other again.
Sharon fell head over heels quite literally in this episode of First Dates Hotel.
On the way back to her room she took a tumble.
And Kenny wasn’t doing too well for himself either.
The pair have met up regularly back in the UK.
Sharon was welcomed with “open paws” by Kenny’s dog, Diesel.
Another successful first date in the bag!
