Most of us have been addicted to Channel 4's First Dates over the last year or two, so we've had high hopes for RTÉ's version.

First Dates Ireland finally comes to our screens tomorrow and a teaser clip from the first episode has been released to show us exactly what to expect.

If you haven't seen it before, singles from all over the country arrive at a special restaurant for a blind date and their night is captured on camera.

The results can range from unbelievably cringeworthy to totally heartwarming... and it makes for seriously addictive viewing.

The short clip from tomorrow's show includes a date between South African model Federica and Donegal accountant Lee, but things seem to get off to a rocky start for the pair when she reveals her pre-dinner ritual.

First Dates Ireland airs on RTÉ Two at 9.30pm tomorrow and Maitre D Mateo Sania has said that the series did not turn out as expected.

"It was full of surprises, this is Ireland, whatever you plan is never going to happen. What will happen is something spontaneous, that you didn't think would happen, that's what makes it so much more interesting and exciting to watch.

"I didn’t expect half the things to happen that happened, it was just brilliant the way the people reacted and responded to the awkwardness and everything."

We can't wait!
