Our relationship with The Undateables is about to break down. From next Monday it will be a meal for one and a bottle of lonely wine.

But don’t worry. The series set to return next year and the great thing is it’s that time of year again when you can apply to be on the show.

A casting director from betty TV has released a statement which reads: "Once again we will be following disabled people and those with a variety of conditions through the highs and lows of their quest to find love.

"As with all previous series, we will explore and challenge some of the issues and barriers faced."

Lucky candidates for the 2018 series will follow in the footsteps of Ray, Lily and Shaine – who just so happen to feature on tonight’s final episode.

Regular viewers will be familiar with some of the faces. Ray – who has a learning disability – is trying to impress Christine with a bottle of bespoke perfume…But will it be the sweet smell of success?

In Hampshire Lily is determined not to let her Williams syndrome stop her finding love. After a relationship crumbled last year she’s back on the dating scene.

Finally we catch up with happy couple Shaine and Gemma as they celebrate their first wedding anniversary together.

A couple of weeks ago we ran a poll asking you if you felt the show was dated and if disabled singletons should feature in programmes such as First Dates instead… 57% of you said Yes. 35% said No and 8% of you were undecided.

The Undateables are on Channel 4 tonight, Monday 9th October at 9pm.
