Paul then dropped the bombshell to Kimmie: ‘There’s something I have to admit, I will just tell you now just to get it over with.

‘My hair is a wig.’

Doggy day care assistant Kimmie was unfazed by his revelation saying: ‘That is one of the best wigs I’ve ever seen in my life. So your hair fell out?’

‘By 20 years old it was pretty much gone. So I went to this clinic and I said I was thinking of a hair transplant, but he said “sorry Paul you’re too late for a hair transplant it’s too far gone,’ Paul revealed.

‘The only option for you is a non-surgical hair piece and I just went “a f***ing wig?!”

Kimmie was totally smitten telling Paul that he suited a bald head as well as with hair.

Paul explained to his date that he had lost the majority of his hair by the time he was 20 years old and a hair piece was the only answe

The end of the first date went well as the pair had plenty of chemistry, talking about their families and what they want in a partner

He charmed his way through the date after complaining originally that girls don’t normally go for his look.

‘I think girls like me, but something goes wrong. Girls they want that shredded look, the tatts, the hair… I’m just an average Joe. 

‘Girls like tall, dark and handsome and I’m just small and ginger. It’s dead hard.’ 

He then recalled a brutal encounter with a woman on a night out: ‘Girls say having no hair doesn’t matter, but I’m telling you it does. You can put a fancy shirt on but there’s always something missing.

‘I was actually at the bar and I was chatting with this girl, I bought her a drink and she took it then at the end of the night I asked if I could get her number and she said “no I don’t date bald people”.

‘It was like “ow”. 

Paul recalled a brutal encounter with a woman on a night out where he bought her drinks all night but then when he asked for her number she told him she ‘didn’t date bald men’

The cute pair went on a second date the following day on the show which is filmed on location in Italy and sees people from the UK matched on blind dates

Kimmie said afterwards: ‘I appreciated how honest you were straight away about your baldness, it’s how you should be, it was nice’

The pair enjoyed their dinner along with Paul’s awkward jokes and he picked up the bill with both of them agreeing they’d like to see each other again.

In First Dates Hotel, which is filmed on location in Italy, they were seen going on a second date the next day for coffee and there was a promising future for the pair. 

Kimmie said afterwards: ‘I appreciated how honest you were straight away about your baldness, it’s how you should be, it was nice. 

‘Not a lot of people are like that nowadays. You were really brave to be honest.’

First Dates Hotel returns next Tuesday on Channel 4 at 9.15pm
