When Magherafelt man Paul Clarke approached Northern Ireland's most exclusive matchmaking company in his quest to find love again, he could never have imagined he would end up helping other men in the same boat.

The 57-year-old has just been unveiled as Soirée Society's new male relationship adviser as the firm gears up to help those looking for love after lockdown.

He will take on a role similar to that of Channel 4's First Dates star Fred Sirieix by introducing couples and putting them at ease on an online Zoom date before they meet in person.
