Fans of the show were seriously loving Eve!
We’re used to First Dates making us howl with laughter and cringe with awkwardness, but Tuesday night’s instalment had viewers all emotional for an entirely different reason after one brave singleton bared all for her blind date.
As beauty therapist Eve Betts arrived at the show’s swanky London restaurant she openly spoke about suffering from alopecia, which causes hair-loss, since she was three.
The 22-year-old greeted her lucky date, Jordan wearing a long dark wig – but soon went on to explain she was actually bald.
Speaking to teaching assistant Jordan, she said: ‘I’ve got no hair. I wear a wig.’
Before swiftly whipping it off and adding: ‘And I’ve got a tattoo on the side of my head.’Despite being a little taken aback, 25-year-old Jordan soon put his date at ease, telling her: ‘Wow! It suits you.’
And after her potential love match told her to ‘Keep the wig off’, Eve decided to take Jordan’s advice and came back from a quick toilet break au naturale (looking pretty amazing might we add).To which Jordan quickly told her: ‘You’re beautiful. I like it. It’s unique.’
And Channel 4 viewers clearly agreed as loads of people at home took to Twitter to praise Eve for her brave decision.
One fan of the show wrote: ‘Just cried watching first dates, eve is so beautiful and brave, a lot of respect for her
Another added: ‘
#FirstDates eve is beautiful… with and without the wig… well done eve for taking that brave step to take it off. #respect’.
And Eve had heaps more social media admirers as well…
Unfortunately it wasn’t a happy ending for these two and despite having a great date, Eve decided that Jordan wasn’t for the one for her and the pair parted ways without a second date on the cards.
