PSA: 'The Undateables' Returns Tonight For Its 11th Series

PSA: 'The Undateables' Returns Tonight For Its 11th Series

The Undateables is officially back for its eleventh season, and there's a brand new bunch of singletons hoping for help in the love department.

Returning for five new Channel 4 episodes, the show will feature two stars per hour, and then take a look at where they are now in the fifth and final instalment.

Following contestants who are living with challenging conditions and consider themselves 'undateable' the unique show hits screens on 11th March - and a first look at the cast has got us so excited.

The new series features a whole range of bubbly personalities, including self proclaimed "diva" Shantae, 22, who is a performing arts student with Down's Syndrome, looking for somebody who can match her confidence.

As we see in episode one, religion is a big part of Shantae's life. She goes to a Pentecostal church in Berkshire every Sunday and so, to her, finding a religious man is also important.

On top of this, she wants somebody who shares her family values. If a man doesn't have her family's approval, it isn't going to work...

Also looking for love in the debut ep is Sam, 28, from Devon.

Sam has a global learning delay, which means he's a little behind in his cognitive and physical development.

A massive Robbie Williams fan, he is hoping to meet a woman who has similar hobbies and interests to him.

He's also a keen horse rider, and has bagged multiple rosettes and awards.

We so hope they both find their happy ever afters.

Ahead of the new series, Channel 4 has also released teaser pictures of the other participants, but we'll have to wait to find out more about them.

Undateables has produced some real success stories since it first aired in 2012.

One of the most popular stars is Daniel Wakeford, who found love on the show and even went on to propose to his girlfriend Lily in 2018, during a Christmas special episode of the show.

Meanwhile, Tourettes sufferer Brent Zillwood met his now wife Challis on the show, and the pair eloped in Las Vegas just one year later.

Steve Carruthers, with Cruzon Syndrome, is another shining example. He married children's nurse Vicky in 2015, and while the pair didn't meet on the show, they got in touch because Vicky saw him on TV.

Here's hoping this year's batch have the same luck.

Undateables airs on Channel 4 tonight at 9pm and will be available to catch up on All4 afterwards.
