What happened in the First Dates Christmas special?

She explained on the show: “Being single at Christmas is pretty rubbish… I’ve definitely never been confident with guys, just going out and meeting guys isn’t really something I actively seek to do.”

She said she likes a “man’s man” and went on a date with 32-year-old plasterer Shane, from Essex.

And viewers were stunned as it sounded like someone let rip just as Shane said to the camera: “Yeah I do [want another date].”

“Okay yeah,” Holly replied, looking super relieved that Shane felt just as keen as her.

What did First Dates viewers say?

Viewers noticed the odd moment and took to social media – although they couldn’t decide on who was the culprit.

One asked, with a string of laughing crying emojis: “Did one of them just fart or have I lost it? #FirstDates.”

A second agreed: “Yes!”

Did one of them just fart or have I lost it?

“Did she fart with the release of all the tension?” said another who thought it was Holly.

However, someone else who thought it was Shane tweeted: “Pretty sure ginger’s date farted in the confessional. Rewound it to double check.”

ED! contacted Channel 4 for comment.

Elsewhere in last night’s First Dates Christmas special, one hopeful, James, got tearful as he spoke about his mum.

During his date with Shauna, James revealed that his mum once battled a flesh-eating virus that forced her to undergo a double mastectomy.

She was also in a horror car crash and medics airlifted her to hospital. James was certain she wouldn’t survive the ordeal, due to her health, but she pulled through.
