The Undateables is a British reality television series that follows a range of people on dates who have long term conditions, including: disabilitiesdevelopmental disordersand learning difficulties. The series worked in conjunction with the dating agency, Flame Introductionsand is broadcast on Channel 4.
There have been 53 episodes since the documentary first aired on 3 Aprilsplit into eleven separate series and a few additional episodes. The documentary has been narrated by Sally Phillips throughout. There was much controversy surrounding the series when it was first introduced, from newspapers such as The Mirror and The Guardiandue to the word 'undateable' being used in the title to describe people with mental and physical disabilities.
However, Channel 4 claims that the title of the series is based upon society's preconceptions of these people. Rachael Pickering said that the series had left her "disturbed at being part of a society that might seek to view disabled people as a source of comedy".
