Fans of First Dates rallied to the aid of Jade after her date shunned her for having plastic surgery.
Tom and Jade’s date was seemingly flowing effortlessly until Tom picked up on some rather plump lips.
Despite calling his date “stunning” and “beautiful”, Tom decided against a second hook up because he was after someone “more natural”.
Look what you’ve just done to Twitter…
The hypocrisy of expecting a woman to look like Jade but rejecting her when you find out she didn’t happen to fall out of a tree looking like that AND you know she has serious self esteem issues, hmph. Hope Jade finds someone safe, sincere and lovely #FirstDates

Man’s Man Tom
Dental nurse Jade admitted that she is often too picky in love, and was waiting for a dark-haired, broad-shouldered alpha male to sweep her off her feet.
How about a tree surgeon?
Is there anything manlier than a guy who likens the sexiness of a woman to wood…
Dashing 26-year-old Tom did little to win over any social fans from here on, however.
Admitting to insecurities around her looks, Jade confessed to her date about a troubled childhood, where she was picked on for her looks.
Jade said: I used to look awful. I used to go through so many years of my childhood crying to my mum saying, ‘I am so ugly’.”
Confident in the sparkling woman she had grown into, however, Jade wasn’t expecting her date to have any disputes over her new image.
Cue a sceptical looking Tom probing about Jade’s exquisitely plump lips…
#FirstDates omg Tom is a douche bag. Her lips were really well done and natural looking. She was gorgeous and a lovely girl too. Better out there for her . what a tosser.

Jade explained that she had lip filler surgery before continuing to confess that she had spent around £12,000 on surgery over her life.
Tom’s face looked bemused, to say the least…
Seemingly approving of some of Jade’s treatments, such as laser eye surgery, while turning his nose up at others, Tom very much kept a closed mind when it came to Jade’s personal choices.
Something social media simply rolled its eyes at…
Ooooo Tom is judgy-wudgy. #FirstDates

A Sour Ending
Chemistry was in sync throughout the date.
The pair even high-fived over a cheese board.
Nevertheless, the dinner ended on a sour note as they headed into the final on-camera confession.
Although Jade appeared more than happy to go for a second date, Tom found her plastic surgery a little too much to cope with, admitting to wanting someone “more natural”.
#FirstDates Tom u need a brain transplant you were punching above ya weight pal.

Fortunately, however, Jade took the news in her stride and bid goodbye to viewers with a powerful message.
After all, it is her body…
Jade said: I don’t regret anything I did or said, because if I want someone to love me in the future, then I want them to love me for me. So I’d rather just be myself and find someone who likes me for who I am.”
