    Manifesting Gerard Butler in the Dating Hall of Fame this week is British comedian, TV writer and presenter London Hughes. Having recently moved from London to LA, we hear all about the differences in dating across the pond, how models might actually be the best people to pit yourself against in the quest for love, and why Uber could be the best untapped dating resource (5 star rating anyone?). With talk of face sitting, tacos, and tequila this episode will have you laughing along.

    When the first date was the worst date. This week we are chatting to comedian couple Sarah Keyworth and Catherine Bohart. Together with Laura, the trio discuss surviving lockdown together, why #CoupleGoals and perfect date nights aren’t always the trick to a great relationship, Irish heads and English legs, being cat-fished by a baby and why you should always try before you buy ladies! (All will become clear in the episode).
