Fans of First Dates were gifted with the perfect end to series 10 as Richard and Jess blew away audiences with their romantic entwinement.
The date hit cuteness overload in the final few minutes as Richard presented his date with a hand-written letter from one of his primary school students.
Rich had promised his 10-year-old student that he would hand out her letter, and the act resulted in floods of tears on Twitter.
Primary School Teacher Richard
We were first introduced to 28-year-old Richard, a primary school teacher desperately looking for love having faced daily ridicule from his school kids.
Wedgies, Chinese burns and mocking your teacher over the fact he can’t get a girlfriend…
Richard though 😍😍 What an absolute dreamboat & so sweet. #FirstDates

Pocket Rocket Jess
Richard’s date was identical to the woman he had described to having a soft spot for during his opening piece to camera.
Meet pocket-rocket Jess, a women’s criminal justice lawyer from Harrogate and an all-around smiley stunner.
Talk about celeb couple in the making.
If Richard and Jess don't get married and have babies it will be a damn waste of beautiful and genuine genes. Just sayin' #firstdates

Smiles and Teeth
Settling down for dinner, the pair breezed past opening nerves with infectious smiles.
Literally, here are the pair grinning like Cheshire cats when all they had actually talked about was where they lived.
And one of the answers was Bradford….
Richard and Jess are a smoking hot couple 😍. They’re actually adorableeeee #FirstDates

A Funny Little Chicken
Richard looked as if he was rapidly moving past heartbreak from his previous relationship as he described date Jess as a “15 out of 10” and “out of this world” while chatting with waitress CiCi Coleman.
Jess progressively came out of her shell as the date continued, telling Richard about her 10-week break from work where she completed a long list of things she wanted to achieve in life.
You know, like being a real-life Ariel…
Of course Jess is a professional mermaid! Could she get any more perfect. I’m kind of wishing that I was Jess right now. Especially on a date with Richard 😊 #firstdates 🧜♀️ ❤️

The Ultimate Letter
The date concluded as Richard whipped out his killer move, explaining to Jess that one of his students had given him a letter to give to his date.
Richard couldn’t let his student down.
The letter read: Dear Lucky Lady, I am one of the students in Mr Ball’s class, so I know him very well. But I think he needs some help from us.
Bless the letter writer #firstdates

Oh my god the letter from the kid in his class!! Cute & genius in 1 – fingers crossed for Richard #FirstDates

The letter finished: Finally, he told me that he will only give you this letter if he genuinely likes you.”
Of course, the pair agreed to see each other again and even became official boyfriend and girlfriend following eight months of dating.
Now that’s how to end a series!
Aww love a #FirstDates happy ending! Richard and Jess, such a cute couple ❤️
