But while we're pretty excited at the prospect of watching Calum woo the ladies at the mixers or seeing Georgia show off her Chelsea etiquette during a dinner date, some of the stars of the show have revealed the whole thing was a bit nerve wracking.

And former X Factor star Frankie and Ex On The Beach's Charlotte have admitted to turning to booze to help them get over the initial hurdle.

Speaking to The Sun, Frankie explained he was so nervous before the first mixer he thought about sacking the whole thing off.

“I was on the train on the way up there and thought ‘f*** this I’m getting off’.

"F*** the money, see ya later," he explained.

He also revealed he had drunk excessively beforehand: “I got slaughtered –for the first mixer. I was battered.

"By the time 6pm came around I was absolutely hammered but I needed to do that I think because it would’ve been carnage."

Charlotte's also let slip that she got so drunk at one of the mixers that she literally 'blacked out' and can't remember anything from that evening.

"I walked in with a bottle of Prosecco and can't remember anything after that."

Probably not the best way to bag a date, eh?
