The Undateables

VIBE – Wednesdays from 9 January, 9.30pm

Looking for love can be tricky – for some more than others. This uplifting three-part series follows the journeys of several extraordinary singletons as they enter the dating circuit in pursuit of love. From a stand-up comedian with Tourettes and a trapeze artist with brittle bones, to a media student with Down’s Syndrome, an amateur poet with a learning disability, and a skateboarder with a facial disfigurement, the series follows the lovelorn hopefuls as they enter the world of blind dates, matchmakers and speed dating. Exploring the realities of looking for love in an image-obsessed world, where snap judgments and first impressions are paramount, The Undateables achieves what the Guardian calls ‘an honest, personal depiction of what are universal experiences… Sometimes funny, sometimes aching, it doesn’t once say disability and dating don’t quite fit.’
