Despite hitting it off with her date on Channel 4’s First Date, Jorgie Porter is still very much single

We were aww-ing and clutching onto our cushions on the sofa when we watched Channel 4’s Stand Up to Cancer celebrity special of First Dates and Hollyoaks babe Jorgie Porter seemed to completely hit it off with personal trainer Craig.

Oh, and then you know at the end of the show where they have the slides with captions of what happened after the show? Well, when it revealed that Jorgie had actually taken Craig as her date to the Inside Soap Awards, our hearts melted into a puddle on the floor and we had high hopes that this was going to be happily ever after. A love story for the ages surely!

But sadly, it wasn’t meant to be – crying face emoji – as the 27-year-old actress told Inside Soap that she’s very much single still.

‘I’m still very much single and enjoying myself.’

‘It was just two dates in the end, but I’m really glad that I did it. We went on one date and then after the Inside Soap Awards I went to a club with a few of the cast. He joined us later on but that was it.’

Talking about her experience on the dating show, the soap star shared how nervous she as because she doesn’t like seeing herself on TV: ‘I think I’m quite cringey and a bit annoying.’

Although things didn’t work out between the pair, Jorgie is still glad that she met 31-year-old Craig and went on the Channel 4 show.

‘Opening up about love and relationships was a big deal for me – it ended up being like a therapy session! I would advise anyone to go on it.’

Think we’ll hit pause on our First Dates application for now, but as long as you’re happy Jorgie, that’s all that matters!

Like the wise words of a certain Natasha Bedingfield: ‘Single right now, and that’s how I wanna be.’ Preach it Bedders.
