Between Bumble, Tinder, Hinge, blind dates, work crushes, and being asked to be a bridesmaid every Summer, it can be hard to keep the faith when trying to find your soulmate.

Even during the best of times, getting ready for a first date can be nervewracking - but what happens when that first date is online? And the second? And the third? 

As social distancing measures become the norm in Ireland, singletons across the country are left to ask - what's next?

Well, in RTÉ Player's Love in Isolation, viewers can get some insight into 2020 dating. In each episode, we will watch two love lost singletons as they have their first date via video chat from their homes. You can watch episode 1 here.

Earlier today, two of our daters - Savannah Nolan and Emmet McKenna - spoke with Jennifer Zamaprelli on RTÉ2fm to discuss their experience of searching for love in lockdown. You can listen back above.

The two fitness fanatics were living outside of Ireland previous to the Coronavirus pandemic, with Dublin woman Savannah starting a new job in London and Belfast man Emmet partying it up in Austalia. 

When the news of lockdown hit, both returned to their family homes in Ireland and, with nothing to lose, signed up to the show.

"I think quarantine is a good time to start new things," says 24-year-old Savannah. "I know a lot of people were baking bread, playing piano, learning Spanish so, I just thought, why not? Originally I wanted to do it as a double date with my friends - they weren't into it but, like, I had nothing to lose!"

Emmet McKenna and Savannah Nolan 

Personal trainer Emmet seems like the perfect match for gym bunny Savannah, who has an appreciation for ambition, consistency, a solid work ethic... and lovely muscles.  And although the two clearly have chemistry by the boatload, the hour-long date took some getting used.

"The date was first thing in the morning so I ate my cereal and put on my eyelashes and then was just sitting in my room. It was so bizarre," explained Savannah.

In an attempt to break the ice and show off his skills, Emmet brought an impressive party piece to the table. The 28-year-old has the ability to hold a flute of champagne... without his hands.

"I used to do a thing called 'Butler in the Buff' - like naked butler - when I lived in Oz. When I first came over, I fell into a gig doing it and for my first gig there were about 30 girls - 15 happened to be Irish - so they were all a bit more boisterous than usual," he explained.

While entertaining the "excitable" the bride-to-be, Emmet was approached by three or four guests who, wanting to make the night as memorable as possible, asked him if he could hold a champagne flute between his bum.

"I said, I'll give it a rattle sure, give it over," he laughed.

And so, a talent was born.
