First episode airs on Tuesday night

A Manx resident has spent the past year filming his social life, as he attempts to find the partner of his dreams - for a television programme which goes on air for the first time tonight (Tues 19).

Liam Rice went viral across social media, for pictures of himself and his very striking, expressive canine companion - Luna.

Now, Liam is featuring in a new Channel 4 series called 'A Year to Fall in Love'.

The programme follows 20 singletons from around Britain, of all ages, backgrounds and sexualities, to showcase what it's like to 'date' in the 21st Century.

The pilot episode will be broadcast on Channel 4 from 10pm on June 19.
