First Dates is the show where people head to the famous London restaurant to find love, but which couples are still going strong?

Channel 4's First Dates is one of the most popular dating shows on TV right now, as people tune in to watch strangers meet at the London restaurant for a blind date.

While some of these dates have been disastrous, many of them go very well and even end in people finding 'the one'.

Recently, Elan and Cindy from the show announced they were engaged and planning their big day.

So who else is still together, who is married and is there a First Dates baby?

On their first date, Ajai said of Hema: “She’s bright, she’s beautiful, she’s engaging."
