From Celebs Go Dating to First Dates, Naked Attraction to Dating in the Dark you’re never really short of a dating show nowadays.

But now there’s a new kind of dating show in town – Flirty Dancing – where rather than dating traditionally, couples find love through their passion for dance.

Taking part in Flirty Dancing is 29-year-old Stephanie. She introduces her knitted ‘Perfect Boyfriend’ AKA Pedro to the show’s host, Ashley Banjo, in episode 2.

Here are five of Stephanie’s best pics from her ‘Pedro the Perfect Boyfriend’ account!

Introducing Pedro

Now, dating show after dating show, the U.K. public does see a lot of quirky characters but bringing a knitted boyfriend onto the show? That’s a whole new level, isn’t it?

Pedro, the Perfect Boyfriend is Flirty Dancing episode 2 contestant Stephanie’s knitted pal.

His Instagram account bio reads: “Bought in a charity shop, knitted by a neighbour, stuffed by my mother…. meet my perfect boyfriend! As seen on Channel 4’s Flirty Dancing!”

Pedro currently only has 83 followers so if you fancy keeping up with everything going on in his world, give him an Insta follow – @pedrotheperfect.

How Did Pedro Come About?

So it looks like this is where it all began for Occupational Therapist, Stephanie.

From that day onward it seems that things were never the same.

Stephanie never had to be alone again, whether sun tanning on holiday or attending a wedding!

Pedro’s a Festival Goer

It looks as though there’s nowhere Pedro can’t go.

Here he is enjoying Gabrielle on stage at a festival, he probably held Stephanie’s beer for her while she popped into the Portaloo, too.

Last but by no means least, everyone can rest easy tonight knowing that Pedro pitched in over Christmas and helped his real-life girlfriend decorate the tree.

After all that, we’re ready for every toy shop to sell out of knit-your-own boyfriends any minute now.
