Britain’s first speed-dating flight is due to take off this weekend – with two of the protagonists of ‘The Only Way is Essex’ on hand to dispense romantic tips.
The Jet2.com flight will take off from Leeds Bradford to Paris early on Saturday morning, full of passengers hoping to find love.
Once in Paris, all the single passengers will be testing their chat-up skills with a speed-dating session conducted on a specially chartered boat travelling along the River Seine.
Any of those needing a little encouragement can seek the advice of Mario Falcone and Lucy Mecklenburgh from the ITV television series, which documented the twists and turns in the lives of young people based in Essex.
Those on board on the flight are all travelling free of charge, having entered a competition. They had to state why they deserved to be on the “love planes” and include a photograph of themselves.
