A NEW reality show is helping couples put their relationship to the ultimate test – by letting them have a “free pass” first date with someone else.
BBC Three’s Just One Night is going to set people up with their “ideal match on paper” to see if they will stick with their current partner or ditch them for someone new.
The first episode, airing tomorrow, sees Bonnie, 22, and Stevie, 23, from north London, test their four-year relationship.
The couple met on Tinder but claim they have hit a crossroads, as she wants them to move in together, and Stevie has his reservations.
Stevie said: “No matter how good you’ve got it, there’s always that bit of doubt of whether there is somebody out there that you haven’t quite met but would like to.”
His honest claims make Bonnie feel insecure about their bond and she responds by saying she doesn’t want to “waste her time” if Stevie is unsure.
In order to fully test how they feel, they sign up to date someone well-matched to them to see how they feel.
Stevie is partnered up with Shannon, 23, from Gloucestershire, who has been single for eight months, and who Stevie describes as a “bit of a sort”.
Meanwhile Bonnie is signed up to go on a date with Moses, 25, who has been single for a year.
On Stevie’s first date, Shannon shows up to the East London bar in a revealing red dress, and Bonnie, sat at the bar waiting for Moses, says she would “never wear” the outfit herself.
Feeling insecure, Bonnie messages her friend that “she’s like a skinner version of me”.
Clearly impressed by his date’s outfit, Stevie texts his pal to say she’s his type “to a T”.
He says: “She’s a bit of a sort. Bonnie is amazing to me, but this girl is very pretty.”
Things look up for Bonnie when date Moses arrives and is “full of charm and banter”, and the pair hit it off – with Stevie watching – before heading off to an Italian restaurant.
Bonnie says she is impressed by the fact Moses would “respect a girl a lot and do whatever it takes to keep that girl” – something she wishes Stevie would do.
Meanwhile Stevie and Shannon find out they have lots of things in common, including a favourite city, pizza topping and car.
Stevie also admits he’d rather have a night out with his guy friends over staying in with Bonnie, who Moses calls “a catch”.
Stevie reveals he is “more interested” in Shannon at that point in time, and his new date points out that if him and Bonnie are so in love, he wouldn’t want to date someone else.
So is all hope lost for Stevie and Bonnie?
Just One Night is available on BBC Three from Friday 12 April.
