When we heard that one of the stars of RTE reality show Tallafornia was going to be on First Dates Ireland, we knew we were in for an interesting watch.
What we didn't expect was that the controversial contestant, Phil Penny, would be quite so awful.
The Tallaght native had his foot firmly in his mouth for the entire episode, making inappropriate comments about his date's lips, bum and boobs.

Fans of the show were definitely not impressed with his behaviour.
I think Phil should be on Undateables #FirstDatesIRL

Phil is the personality equivalent of when someone on X Factor can’t sing but auditions anyway #firstdatesirl
