Emily Atack and Asim Chaudhry are taking on Dating No Filter as the show returns this Christmas.

After we saw plenty of awkward moments last series, the show that sees comedians commentate on singletons blundering their way through first dates is back in business.

While true love isn’t guaranteed, some hilarious moments definitely are.

The Inbetweeners star will be paired up with The Masked Singer host Joel Dommett as they comment on unsuspecting hopefuls who head on blind dates.

Meanwhile, People Just Do Nothing star Asim will be joined by stand-up comedian Sukh Ojla.

The dating show will return with a Christmas special in 2021, with the full series returning to screens in February 2022 on Sky Max and NOW TV.

Emily said: ‘It’s been amazing working alongside Joel on this series. We both had such a laugh having a front row seat and watching people go on some of the most hilarious blind dates. Viewers are going to really enjoy it.’

Joel added: ‘I did Dating No Filter last series and I think almost everyone who did it last time wanted to do it again because it was super fun to do. You’re basically just sat with a friend watching funny dates.

‘It’s so funny seeing what people do in that moment of awkwardness, because we’ve all experienced that moment. If anyone pointed me out on my first date with my wife, they would all be laughing and talking about how awkward it was.’

Also featuring will be the likes of Chunkz and Yung Filly, as well as Josh Widdicombe and Rosie Jones and we’re so ready to see the awkwardness begin.

Last series saw the single hopefuls take on dates from axe throwing and ballroom dancing to pole dancing and a visit to a goat farm.

Meanwhile, the stars were left astonished during one moment when a singleton told his date that Alicia Keys was his singing teacher, before leaving her completely unimpressed with his musical talent.

We’re not experts, but we would not recommend following in that guy’s footsteps.

Dating No Filter will return this Christmas.
