A Sheffield woman, 31, is looking for love on Channel 5's Blind Date this Saturday.

Emma is looking for a 'tall, dark and handsome' gym-goer. Will she find someone to work up a sweat with?

A spokesman for Blind Date said: "Emma has been very unlucky in love and would love to find a good-looking guy that is finally worth staying in and having a curry on a Saturday night with.

"Emma likes someone who is tall dark and handsome – and someone who goes to the gym!"

Will someone curry her favour?

The show will also host Alice, aged 29, from Leeds, who works for a frozen food company.

The Celine Dion fan is hoping that an appearance on the dating show, hosted by Paul O'Grady, will hot up her love life.

A spokesman for Blind Date said: "Alice works as a Compliance Administrator for a frozen foods company, dealing with customer complaints, but admits to keeping a positive head on her shoulders.

"Despite the flack she gets from her friends, Celine Dion remains Alice’s one and only true love, but she’s hoping Blind Date could change that."

The show will be broadcast at 8pm on Saturday (Note: the time was originally 7pm but Channel 5 has been in contact to inform that the show will now be broadcast at 8pm instead).
