Summary Looking for love can be tricky, but some find it harder than others. Add disability to the equation and it can sometimes seem almost impossible. This uplifting series follows the journeys of several extraordinary singletons as they enter the dating circuit in pursuit of love. Heather has severe OCD. Gareth has brittle bones and has broken his legs over 150 times. Matthew has autism. Can the three of them find partners? Thirty-eight-year-old Heather's OCD means she cannot have any physical contact due to her fear of contamination by people's germs and hasn't invited anyone into her home for years. Heather also has Asperger's, making things such as eye contact very hard for her. Heather goes on her first date in three years, with Peter. Twenty-eight-year-old Gareth has osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) which makes his bones extremely brittle. He has broken his legs more than 150 times in his life, and uses a wheelchair. "I just don't want to die a 40-year-old virgin," he says. Gareth takes Beth on a date to a seafront restaurant, but will they hit it off? Matthew is 20 years old and is a student at a college in Milton Keynes. He is keen on karate and indie music. Despite a busy and fulfilling life, Matthew has autism and has never had a girlfriend. For his first ever date, Matthew takes Nicola from St Albans, who also has autism, to an Indian restaurant. Will he be able to get over the fact that she is a Peter Andre fan?PRODUCTION DETAILS:Produced and directed by Kathryn Tregidgo and Chris McLaughlin, series produced by Sarah Spencer
