The police did walk past our photo shoot – I found that pretty awkward!

Impeccable.

Marks out of 10?
9.

Would you meet again?
As friends, absolutely!

Que estabas esperando?
Good food and good conversation. And the hopeless romantic in me was secretly hoping for a knight in shining armour.

Primeras impresiones?
Alto, friendly, keen to order an aperitif.

De qué hablaste?
Comida. MasterChef, Bake Off. Devon. The trials and tribulations of a London flatshare. Voter apathy.

Any awkward moments?
There was a slight mix-up between Drake and Francis Drake …

Good table manners?
Great until we got to dessert … Fingers shouldn’t be used in the absence of a fork.

Best thing about Tom?
Easy to talk to.

Would you introduce him to your friends?
sí, I think so. He’d be a great guest at a Sunday pub lunch.

Describe Tom in three words?
A true gent – he walked me to the bus stop.

What do you think he made of you?
That I’m massively into food and a big fan of an evening class. And perhaps also that I’m rather a quick drinker?!

Did you go on somewhere?
It was a chilly Monday evening and time to head home.

And … did you kiss?
Sadly no smooching. There wasn’t a spark.

If you could change one thing about the evening what would it be?
That I’d made a note of the white wine – Italian, crisp and delish.

Marks out of 10?
7.

Would you meet again?
Unlikely.
