Tonight’s first episode of Teens First Date on E4 got off to an awkward start for one university student as he forgot the name of his date.
The brand new spin-off show, which welcomes young people aged between 16 and 19 to a restaurant in Manchester, saw Archie completely put his foot in it shortly after sitting down with singer Eden.
Before the potential couple ordered their food, Eden, 19, asked Archie: ‘Do you remember my name?’
‘It’s so rare your name,’ Archie, also 19, replied, clearly clutching at straws. ‘I just can’t remember it.’
Eden then challenged her date to hazard a guess, to which he responded: ‘There’s a book about it.’
‘It’s in the Bible and there’s a project about it,’ Eden hinted.
‘Jurassic Park?’ Archie guessed with a snigger.
Eden eventually gave up and reminded Archie of her name.
‘They’re obviously going to put that in the programme now and make me look like a tw*t, aren’t they?’ he quipped.
Yep, the producers really went there.
Sadly though, it wasn’t a match made in heaven for Archie and Eden, with the pair deciding there wasn’t a romantic spark between them.
Musician Eden did, however, invite Archie to one of her gigs as a sweet gesture.
Next week’s episode sees roofer Joe sits down for a meal with cheerleader and music student Katie, while Caitlyn and Baillie bond over their mental health experiences.
Teen First Dates continues on Monday at 10pm on E4.
