Remember 21-year-old dancer Frankie who was set up on a date with fellow dancer Muhala?

Which First Dates couples are still dating?

First Dates: Fireworks remembers Muhala and Frankie, dancers who clearly couldn’t wait to tear each other’s clothes off.

First Dates maître d’hôtel Fred Sirieix described them as two magnets.

But did Frankie and Muhala see each other again?

Muhala said “this is more than just seeing her once and never seeing her again”, while Frankie warned she “would make him wait”.

They DID agree to see each other again, but we can confirm they did not stay together. He currently lives in Dubai!

Also featuring in the episode is weightlifter Lucy’s date with Caroline, which resulted in a shirt being ripped in front of the packed restaurant!

Although they sealed their date with a kiss, it wasn’t meant to be…

So who IS still together?

Hema and Ajai

Hema and Ajai married after meeting on the show – now that’s a success story!

Despite Hema telling Ajai she didn’t like his moustache, he described her as “bright, beautiful and engaging”.

Ultimately, the pair gave each other a chance and ended up falling in love.

They wed in 2018 after two years together.
