First Dates Hotel viewers thrilled with Ulrika Jonsson's match

The pair hit it off straight away

Fans of Channel 4's First Dates Hotel were thrilled to see Ulrika Jonsson get on so well with Bristolian silver fox Paul on this week's episode.

Following her divorce from third husband Brian Monet earlier this year, 52-year-old Ulrika headed along to the First Dates Hotel to see if she could find romance, and was matched with the 48-year-old.

And the pair appeared to hit it off as no topic was off limits over their romantic dinner, with them covering everything from past marriage breakdowns to banana sandwiches and Ulrika losing her dad when she was just 27.

At one point Paul made her laugh so much she admitted she was going to "genuinely wet myself".

First Dates fans took to Twitter to share their delight at seeing Ulrika meet a potential romantic partner.

"This was a wonderful match! Just so lovely to see them both enjoying each other's company and the laughter," one fan wrote.

The pair shared plenty of laughs and even got philosophical at one point, with Ulrika telling Paul: "I think we’re all chasing something.

This prompted him to ask: "Do you think you’re chasing something?"

"No, I can’t run," she quipped. "I run like I’m running for help. I just want you to know, I’m a real catch.

"I’ve got arthritis in both hips and a lower back problem," she laughed.
