Fans of First Dates have fallen head over heels for ‘Northern’ Cindy following her heart-wrenching first date in over two years.

Coping with the trauma of both her mum and dad becoming critically ill, dating hasn’t been a priority for the brunette stunner.

However, her date with Elan proved a match made in heaven, as Twitter went into meltdown following news that the pair continued dating for six months.

And counting!

Exotic

Olive-skinned and brunette beauty Cindy explained that people were often put off by her strong Northern accent.

Stereotyping the Leeds lass as a “typical” Yorkshire girl with a reputation for drinking a lot and “living in the pub”, Cindy was still waiting to find Mr Right.

Somebody that would cherish her proper Northern ways…

 

Cindy met her date, the equally exotic looking Elan, who was half Israeli and half bloody gorgeous.

The pair, dressed in almost matching khaki outfits, soon felt the charm of restaurant manager Fred Sirieix, as he welcomed two of First Dates’ most beautiful guests.

Oh Fred, stop that!

To be fair, they would make some pretty perfect looking babies.

Trauma

Hearts poured out for Cindy as she explained to her date that both of her parents went into critical care over a short period of time.

Her mum was diagnosed with a brain tumour, changing Cindy’s life forever as she said no to a job in Switzerland, settling back home in Leeds to be there for her mum.

However, soon after, her dad suffered a stroke.

Teary-eyed in her piece to camera, Cindy explained how her mum is her hero, and always will be.

She said: My mum’s my hero. The treatment was so tough. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy everyday.

Team Khaki

Elan comforted and supported Cindy along the way, creating ‘team khaki’ because of their matching outfits.

Not only agreeing to see each other again, we found out that the couple went on to date for six months.

Elan met Cindy’s mum and they are strengthening their relationship every day.

Long live #TeamKhaki.
