Join Fred Sireix and his First Dates staff as the London-based reality TV show relocates to Southern Italy for its spinoff show.

The Hotel version of First Dates started on 8th January 2018 with episode one of its second series.

Now, episode six is just around the corner, where a wealth of hopeless romantics and swooning singletons are waiting.

Here’s all you need to know.

When is First Dates Hotel on and on what channel?

The six episode of First Dates Hotel starts tonight (Monday, February 12, 2018) on Channel 4 at 10pm.

Is Griff (and Jeffers) on the show?

An interent sensation and cult hero has been born thanks to a chicken farmer named Griff. Griff featured on episodes four and five of the show however now his time on First Dates Hotel has come to an end.

Unfortunately he won’t be around making calls to best mate ‘Jeffers’ every two minutes on tonight’s episode. Instead, we meet dancer Francesca, international DJ Jo and her best friend, fashionista Sara, and widower Dave.

What happens on First Dates Hotel?

First, Channel 4 ‘love scientists’ match up singletons by mutual interests and personalities.

Then, potential lovebirds have dinner at the hotel. Adam Chapman, series editor of First Dates Hotel, said: “This hotel has the perfect mix of luxury and old fashioned romance in arguably the most passionate country in the world.”

From here, if the pair decide to continue seeing each other, they are rewarded with another night stay.

BUT, should the date turn sour, the not-so couply couple are sent back to the UK. Yikes.

Where is First Dates Hotel 2018 set?

First Dates Hotel is set in Campania, Naples, in Southern Italy.

The hotel, Aquapetra Resort & Spa, is a luxurious getaway on the beautiful Amalfi Coast, complete with a large outdoor pool, jacuzzi, hotel bar and restaurant.
