What happened with Louisa and Will on First Dates?

She was a theology student and admitted struggling talking to men, putting it down partly to the fact she went to an all-girl’s school.

The pair hit it off and, apart from some awkwardness, got on really well.

Unfortunately, Will said afterwards that he wasn’t interested romantically and Louisa looked gutted.

Will said: “I don’t think I’d want to take things further with you in a dating front, but that is nothing personal, that’s me not you, and I still really enjoyed your company and I’d love to see you again, maybe in a friendly way? But perhaps not in a dating way.”

Louisa replied: “No, I think… friends, yeah. Lots of women would be happy to have this chap.”

Louisa has gone on to find happiness in herself. She now lives in Berlin and has come out as gay.

At the end of the episode, it revealed that Louisa had moved overseas and had come out as gay.

An on-screen message read: “Despite an unsuccessful date with Will, Louisa has gone on to find happiness in herself. She now lives in Berlin and has come out as gay.”
