Aberdeen contestants

Jack Wiseman

During the last season, 10 singletons from the city took part, including Jack Wiseman, 22, who serenaded his date with a rendition of High School Musical.

He is taking part once again and is hoping to find love.

He said: “Last time round, Zoom to Groom was such a laugh during such a gloomy time for all of us.

“Finally managed to have a Saturday night out again, didn’t even have to leave the house (or put trousers on).

“Honestly can’t wait for the Christmas special so I can belt out some more High School Musical tunes and hope to finally find a date who will put up with me.

“Who needs Ant and Dec when you’ve got Andy and Hannah.”

Faye Murray

Faye Murray, 19, also enjoyed taking part in the last season.

She said: “During the lockdown I was in Season 2 of Zoom to Groom.

“It was something my pals had done previously and it was fun to watch so I decided to enter myself and I’m glad I did.

“I had a great experience and actually made a match on the show.

“Hannah and Andy are great and made me feel comfortable and confident on the show. It was a great thing to be a part of during lockdown.”

Craig Dyker on his date

Craig Dyker, 21, was dating guys on the show and caused controversy when viewers spotted someone hanging around in the background.

It turned out to be a Tinder date from earlier in the night.

The show was created by dad-of-three Andy Dunlop from Darvel who came up with the idea following a conversation with his mates about how difficult dating would be during lockdown.

He said: “With the majority of Scotland back in some form of lockdown and festive cheer slowly disappearing, we wanted to make sure we warmed some cockles this Christmas.

“Zoom to Groom helped a lot of people through lockdown in the summer so hopefully it can bring more people together this winter, as it’s an especially di?cult time to be on your own.”

How to apply

The show will be broadcast at 10pm this Saturday.
