Channel 5 has unveiled a brand new show, which will see British singletons from different social backgrounds agree to meet for a blind date.
My Posh Date, created by the makers of the nation’s much-loved series First Dates, will see whether love can flourish across the class divide.
During its very first episode, set to air at 10pm tonight, viewers will see privately educated Sam trying to woo special needs teacher Amy with his favourite pastime – punting.
Quietly confident that his date will never have been a date quite like it, the investment broker will tell viewers: ‘I highly doubt that someone has taken her for a punt before.’

The couple, who come from different social backgrounds, will try to see if love can flourish across the class divide
Unaware of what is waiting in store, Amy tells viewers: ‘I don’t have any experience of being around people who are really wealthy. ‘
As the blind date commences, viewers will watch in anticipation as Amy admits to Sam that she has never heard of a punt.
Dressed in a leather jacket and mini skirt, Amy admits to Sam: ‘Never in my life I don’t even know what it is.’
As the comical scenes unfold, Sam is seen armed with strawberries and prosecco for his lucky lady, while Amy clambers onto the flat-bottomed boat and tries and engage in conversation.
For their very first date Sam will take Amy punting but little does he know she has never heard of his favourite pastime before
The pair, who are meeting for the very first time, will try and see if there is a spark between them
Following their romantic ride along the canal, Sam and Amy take a stroll to the nearby park to indulge in a posh picnic prepared by the broker himself.
However before long disaster erupts as Amy’s attempts at opening a champagne bottle see the bubbly beverage spill all over her.
A startled Sam says: ‘Are you okay? You’re a bit wet.’
Taking her cue to poke fun at the situation, Amy replies: ‘Wet everywhere, and not even the good type.’
As the pair continue with their picnic, the topic of conversation soon turns to fast food and kebabs, with Sam admitting to Amy he has never indulged in the meaty treat.
Elsewhere viewers will meet gas fitter Jack from Lewisham and his blind date trainee barrister Holly
Prior to meeting Holly, Jack’s mother (right) will admit to the cameras that she is worried about the idea of her son dating a posh girl
As Holly makes her way to Jack’s home she will admit to viewers that she grew up in an area surrounded by fields rather than high-rise buildings
Making the confession he says: ‘Unfortunately I didn’t pack the kebabs. I like to sit down at a table when I eat.’
Elsewhere viewers will also meet gas fitter Jack from Lewisham and trainee barrister Holly who come from very different backgrounds.
Jack is seen eagerly anticipating Amy’s arrival to his home with his supportive mother, who is worried about the idea of her son dating a ‘posh girl’.
Confessing her fears to the cameras, Jack’s mother says: ‘I’m obviously worried about it. I don’t like girls that are overdone and the way girls talk is important.’
The pair will sit down for a drink as viewers watch with anticipation to see if love can flourish between them
Prior to meeting Jack, the trainee barrister tells viewers that she is nervous about the blind date
Viewers will eagerly watch the couple as they try to find common ground despite coming from different social backgrounds
She continues: ‘She’s from a totally different background so obviously I’ll be weighing her up’.
As the mother-son duo wait for Holly to arrive, the trainee barrister is seen making her way through streets that look very different from where she was raised.
She admits to viewers: ‘So this is my first time in Lewisham, from what I see of it it is obviously up and coming. I grew up with fields we certainly didn’t have any high rise buildings. I’m like a fish out of water.
‘I am nervous there is quite a lot riding on this.’
The very first My Posh Date will air at 10pm on Channel 5 on October 10.
