First Dates fans fall for Welsh single lass Marie after hilarious and heartbreaking date night

The hopeful school teacher left fans in hysterics with talking heads

SHE may not have won the man… but Welsh lass Marie certainly won over viewers after a hilarious appearance on Channel 4 show First Dates.

The quirky school teacher left viewers cheering her on as she looked for love on the television show – and was quickly won over by her charm and hysterical one-liners when talking to the camera.

Introducing herself and her luck with men, she said: “I have a cup at home that says it all, ‘Not all men are bad – some are dead!'”

Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: “This blonde woman on #FirstDates is the funniest woman in the history of people. What a legend.”

Unfortunately for her, Marie was paired up with vegan Davin – who was left less than impressed with her attempts at humour when she asked if he would be offended if she ordered a pig’s head to the table.

He had previously told the cameras: “Laughing with a partner can really make you fall for them in a special way.”

Later on, Marie snuck off to the ladies for a quick chat with a friend on the phone about how the date was going – only to cut them off because “she didn’t want to be in there too long in case he thought she was doing a poo”.

While Marie’s jokes might not have landed with her dates, she quickly grew a slew of fans at home – with many comparing her to comedy greats.

One said: “Marie – Victoria Wood meets Rob Brydon? Character and charm. How is she still single??”

The couple then tried and failed to make the date work – with both of them having different relationship backgrounds and were split on their opinion to want kids.

Davin ended the date by declining to meet up again – leaving fans feeling for Marie as she got weepy on screen.

She told the camera: “There’s only so many times a girl can hear that. It’s hard.”

One fan wrote: “Aw bless, Marie is just lovely. I hope she finds someone to go to the beach & have fish & chips with.”

A second viewer chipped in and said: “Can’t believe the boring vegan binned her off. Marie was was too good for him”

Another added: “Awwww Marie. I think you’re the even nicer than me gran. Don’t lose heart Hun! You’re gonna bag a good one.”

Luckily the lass will be returning to try her luck once more.
