Many had never been on a date before, but the show was a hit with many admitting that the new generation wre “alright,” as they discussed the death of a parent to toxic masculinity.
“Teen first dates is the cutest,” shared one viewer as another admitted: “Good grief – I realise this is frivolous, but I’m watching Teen First Dates and it’s simply the most adorable thing I’ve seen in months!”
“I thought I would be cringing at this teen first dates but it’s actually the cutest thing in the world,” added another, questioning: “Why wasn’t love this sweet when I was 17?”
“Teen First Dates is absolutely PRECIOUS,” insisted one viewer.

The show’s usual maitre’d Fred Siriex returned to help the teenagers gather their nerves – but he previously told The Sun that the teens behave just like adults, including a few kisses, hugs and even handshakes.
Speaking to The Sun’s TV Mag, he said: “They did behave themselves, I mean, some of them are more naughty than others.
“Some of them are more introvert and others are more extrovert and there’s everything inbetween, just like adults. Some of them are adults because they are 18 or 19 but they are between the age of 16 and 19.”
He added: “What you see in the series of First Dates on Channel 4 and what you will see on the teen series, you will see some similarities.

“But what it does with the teens, especially for us because obviously we’re not teenagers anymore, it takes you back to the time when you were a teenager and who you were as a teenager and what you did and what you said. It takes you back down memory lane.”
Fred – who has been the matchmaker Maître D’ since the programme started in 2013 – says the teen series is “almost like a nature programme”.
