12 Dates of Christmas: All you need to know about Channel 4’s festive dating show

Being single at Christmas can sometimes be tough. Couples seem to pop up everywhere in their matching jumpers and soppy Instagram posts. Not to mention having to deal with the endless questions from nagging mums and disappointed Aunties about why you haven’t found someone yet.

Well, Channel 4's brand new reality show is hoping to solve that problem for three lucky singletons who will get the chance to find a special someone to bring home for the holidays.

If you're a fan of Married At First Sight and Love Island, you'll love 12 Dates of Christmas. The show follows Christian ‘Faith’ Fernandez, Chad Savage and Garret Marcantel as they meet meet potential love interests throughout the series’ eight episodes.

In a fairytale castle in Austria, the trio will embark on 10 festive-themed dates. From Christmas karaoke to steamy ski sessions, they’ll have plenty of chances to mingle with other singletons and whittle it down to one lucky person.

That lucky guy or gal will hope to make a good impression on their partner’s family when they’re brought home for a first meeting. Our trio will then have until the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve to make their final decision – commit or walk away forever?

One of the contestants, Chad, a 29-year-old New Yorker, is excited for viewers to watch this unique series.
