Not every date goes swimmingly, but there are some success stories, so what are you waiting for?

The only thing standing between you and meeting Fred and the team at the First Dates restaurant is an application form and audition process.

The advert says: "We currently have a number of lovely ladies looking for a man to share a date with.

"We're searching for men 18+ from across the UK who are single and looking for their perfect match."

Auditions are being held in Birmingham and Bristol on Saturday (September 30), but before you can make your way across the country to prove why you are the perfect candidate, you will need to reveal your age, share your height and describe yourself in 250 words in an online application.

A photo is also needed, but if you are a man of many words, there is also a video option so get your thinking caps on.
