For those who think Blind Date is a nice, rather vanilla dating show, think again.

Tonight's (July 21) episode featured so much snake behaviour, it could have been an episode of Love Island - featuring Paul O'Grady of course.



As regular viewers may already know, last week's couple, James and Plum, went on a holiday to Sri Lanka for their date and really hit it off . They got on so well in fact that Plum casually mentioned marriage, which nearly made James fall off his fishing perch (we feel you, James).









However, they got on so well and even had a cheeky snog on the beach at sunset, which made a happy ever after inevitable, right? Well, not quite.

Plum then dropped the bombshell that she found out James actually had a girlfriend the whole time! Awks.







Well, naturally she really wasn't impressed and told him she didn't like him anymore, and her mum didn't like him either, which pretty much destroyed any chance of a future date (or wedding, for that matter).



Viewers were pretty enthralled by this Love Island-like behaviour and couldn't quite believe James could go on the show while he had a girlfriend at home.















Send the pair of them over to the Love Island villa and see how they survive in there - we'd definitely watch that.

Hey, at least there wasn't another shoes with no socks disaster tonight though, right?
