The dating show has been a hit on RTÉ as it attempts to pair up compatible singles looking for love.

It's due back on our screens in the autumn but producers are still seeking contestants to take part - especially gay women.

Coco Television, the production company behind First Dates Ireland, has put a call out on social media for more LGBTQ daters to get in touch to take part in the show.

Anna Nolan, who's head of development at Coco, took to Twitter, calling on more lesbians to get involved.

Earlier this week, the company also announced that it wanted to hear from more men over the age of 35.

Prospective daters applying to the show must submit a photo of themselves and answer a number of questions about their romantic life including the best and worst dates they've ever been on and their relationship history.
