Davina travels to various bits of the country looking for someone who is single and up for a date. When she finds someone, they go around town eyeing up the local totty. When he/she thinks they've found someone they'd like to go out on a date with, Davina will go up and ask them if they are single and up for it. If so then that's fantastic, they'll go on a date the next evening. If not they'll just go and find somebody else.

That's basically it apart from the build up to and the date itself, both of which are filmed in the youth-TV 'art' style. Sometimes they like each other and sometimes they will not. That's it really.

Came back as a one-off special for Stand Up to Cancer, presented by Davina, before being picked up for a series, with Scarlett Moffatt taking over.
