Bubbly Northern Ireland woman Krystal Allen will be one of the romantic hopefuls looking for love in the new series of First Dates, which airs this Tuesday on Channel 4.

Krystal (32), from Monkstown, meets blind date James in the first episode of the hit show.

A volunteer at an owl sanctuary, she has plenty of feathered friends but no-one has taken her under their wing yet when it comes to love.

Describing herself as "wired to the moon", Krystal fears she scares men off with her larger-than-life personality and chattiness.

The date gets off to a flying start when James joyfully receives a knitted owl from Krystal, but will things take a nose dive when she discovers what he does for a living?

"They've sworn me to secrecy about anything to do with the date, so to find out how it went you'll just have to tune in on Tuesday," she laughed.
