Love in Isolation comes to the RTÉ Player from June 9, with the new series bringing singles from all across the country together online.

"Let's face it, you've been video calling your friends - nobody has any news and how many quizzes are one too many?" asks the RTÉ Player team. "If you are living at home with your parents you'll be sick of talking about what's for dinner by now. We could all do with a good old-fashioned, albeit socially distant, love story!

Joanne and Paul

"Recorded in their homes via video chat, our daters have been frustrated by lockdown and can't wait to get socialising again, so they have jumped at the chance to dress up, have a drink and even light a candle or two. As each date is set a challenge, we'll discover some quirky talents and daters' secret passions that just might spark a match!"

Romantic hopeful Savannah Nolan, 24, from Dublin says: "I felt quarantine was a great time to try new things and I thought, 'Why not go on an online dating show too?' Emmet was all the things I'd asked for down to his green eyes! My friends would consider me to be loud and outrageous, but Emmet almost made me look boring. We were both such high energy and it almost became a competition of who was the most fun and outrageous."

Alan Young, 24, from Kildare, adds: "I had a great time on my date - it was a fun experience and I'd definitely do it again. It might be weird to watch it back on RTÉ Player though, because whoever watches themselves back on a date? Sometimes all we have is a blurred memory! I know this is a difficult time for a lot of people, and hopefully a bit of light-hearted fun like this will put an infectious smile on your face."

Alan and Neil

All the episodes of Love in Isolation will go live on the RTÉ Player on Tuesday, June 9.
