However, viewers could be forgiven for missing fellow star Matt Terry, who also signed up to appear on the Channel 4 favourite.
Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk at the Oxford Street Christmas lights switch on, the 24-year-old opened up about his appearance after he was only seen talking briefly to Sinitta, 54, taking a picture with a fellow diner before offering to pay for his female companion.
Asked about the experience, Matt commented: “It was for charity… put it that way. It was alright, it was an experience.”
“It was really good but it was just really long – three hours. We didn’t really have a spark.”
Addressing why so little of his meeting was broadcast, the singer continued: “I’m not sure. I don’t really know, I just think it was a decision between my management and ITV. Maybe it wasn’t interesting enough, who knows?”[sic]
On whether he’d do it again, Matt added: “No, absolutely not. I don’t think I’m good at that – dating people I don’t know, be friends first… I can’t do blind dates.”
Meanwhile, a Channel 4 spokesperson told Express.co.uk: “It’s great to have celebrities involved in our charity special.
“Matt Terry was a good sport for this Stand Up To Cancer special and enjoyed his time being a special guest in our First Dates restaurant.”
Among the confused tweets on the night, one had read: “Did I sleep through Matt Terry’s date or was it so boring they cut it? #FirstDates.”
Two others agreed: “Where the hell did Matt Terry go? #FirstDates,” and: “So was Matt Terry just an extra then… #FirstDates.”
First Dates continues Monday at 10pm on Channel 4.
