The Unexpectedly Romantic First Dates Moment We’re All Talking About

Aww. Cici and Sam had everyone talking last night with Sam's Love Actually style confession of love..

And the award for MOST perfect First Dates moment goes to… Sam Conrad and Cici Coleman.

Yep, last night’s Christmas special didn’t just have us all gushing over the singletons on their dates, oh no. Because there was also a very special moment between our fave two waiters – Sam and Cici.

Sam sent fans into meltdown when he decided to go all Love Actually on us and declare his love for his gorgeous colleague Cici via a series of romantic placards. Awww.

Replicating Andrew Lincoln and Keira Knightley’s famous scene from the 2003 Christmas movie, Sam wrote:: ‘Just because it’s Christmas… And at Christmas you tell the truth… To me, you are perfect.’


And whilst viewers were busy calling the unexpected moment ‘the cutest’, others were desperate to know what happened afterwards…

The show ended with Cici giving Sam a hug (no kiss, we’re afraid), leaving many to assume he’d just been friendzoned. But could romance have blossomed afterwards?!

Well, the following morning Cici tweeted a photo of her and Sam lying on the floor in matching Christmas jumpers labelled: ‘Bless him’. Hmm. Not quite the romantic outburst we were looking for.

However, Cici did then like a tweet which read: ‘You 2 are SO adorable together. Better First Dates pairing than most of the actual dates xx.’

Ooh. Could this be a sign that she’s keen for romance with the adorable Sam? Looks like we’ll be waiting a little longer to find out…
