The dating show with a difference sees Diversity star Ashley Banjo matchmaking strangers and teaching them, individually, a dance routine that they will perform together when they first meet. It was certainly different but also surprisingly moving and effective.
In episode 2 Ashley is matchmaking once again and this time he has another two couples to work his magic on. First up is 32-year-old James, a classroom leader from Paignton, who is paired with 27-year-old Jessica, a manager at a children’s home from Taunton.
The second couple who will be dancing together is 29-year-old children’s occupational therapist Stephanie from Stratford-upon-Avon and 27-year-old Baz, a graphic designer from London.
Take a look at this week’s hopeful singletons in our gallery below:
Will romance strike? You’ll have to tune in on Thursday to find out but one thing is certain, there’ll be some very interesting dance routines to enjoy as the couples meet for the first time.
Flirty Dancing airs at 10pm Thursday on Channel 4.
