With the next season of Love Island just around the corner, last year’s winner of the summer series is bringing the romance to Greater Manchester. Since we can’t all hop on a plane to a Mediterranean paradise to find the love of our life, Manchester singletons can instead take part in a speed dating session this June and receive relationship advice from Love Island winner Davide Sanclimenti.
The TV star, who won the ITV dating show in Summer 2023 with partner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, will be hosting two speed dating events, one of which will take place at MediaCity in Salford on June 15. Located at Italian restaurant Prezzo, a spot where Davide chose to ask Ekin-Su to move in with him with the help of an iconic tiramisu, wants to help people find ‘the one’ before summer begins.
During the main event, attendees will go on a series of speed dating rounds – each lasting up to 10 minutes – where you’ll have the opportunity to chat, flirt and laugh the night away with your dates. To help you remember all of your dates, Prezzo will provide a scorecard to mark down all those that you like.
Plus, you’ll also have breaks for food, drinks and chit-chat throughout the night.. After the speed dating rounds are over, if you find your match or ‘type on paper’, you’ll be encouraged to exchange details so you can set-up date number two.
Taking to Instagram, Davide said: “You all know my love for Italian food, so I’m very excited to reveal that I am partnering with @love_prezzo again this year to help YOU find ‘the one’ ahead of summer.
“As a go-to date spot (and even the restaurant I chose to ask Ekin-Su to move in with me with a little help from a tasty Italian tiramisu…IYKYK), I’ll be hosting two speed dating events at Prezzo in London and Manchester this June.
“Next Thursday, I’ll be at Prezzo’s Soho restaurant and in Prezzo Manchester Media City restaurant the following week on Thursday 15th, offering my dating advice to singles before they embark on an evening of quick-fire speed dates.”
Tickets cost £10 which includes all food and a welcome drink…taking away the awkward conversations around who will be picking up the bill. The evening will feature dishes from the new Prezzo Summer Menu including indulgent pea and pecorino arancini, a suitably summery courgette, ricotta & sundried tomato pizza.
