The popular reality series has spawned the spinoff Teen First Dates, which began showing on E4 in February 2021, with a second season starting on February 22, 2022.

Is Fred Sirieix married?

Fred Sirieix isn't married but is engaged to his girlfriend whose name remains undisclosed, but whom is known on his social media accounts as "Fruitcake."

The 49-year-old Maître d’ has never been married, but was previously in a relationship with Alex Spendolini for 12 years. He revealed his relationship with Fruitcake on Instagram in 2018, and on March 17, 2020, Fred confirmed their engagement by sharing a picture of the pair with the simple caption "#fruitcake said yes," with heart and ring emojis.  

Fruitcake has her own Instagram account named fruitcake_fundamentals, where her name remains a mystery, but she shares affordable high street fashion buys. The fashionista shares clothing advice for those with fuller figures and a bigger bust, as well as where to find budget clothing that looks premium. There's also plenty of snaps featuring her life and adventures with husband-to-be, Fred. 

The pair had planned to marry in 2021, but cancelled as some family were finding it difficult to travel due to ongoing coronavirus restrictions. Although Fred suggested the wedding would take place in 2022, there has been no announcement from either Fred or Fruitcake, that a wedding has gone ahead.
