Fans were seriously confused while watching First Dates on Tuesday when hopeful singleton, Melissa, revealed to her date that she was actually already married! The mother-of-two was meeting with masseuse Damian for the first time, who spotted that she was wearing a diamond ring on her ring finger. Asking her about it, he said: "It looks like you're married," to which she replied: "I am." However, Damian doesn't have to worry about beginning an affair with Melissa, as she revealed that she actually married herself back in June 2018 after a bad break-up. She explained that she had been married twice before and wanted to celebrate herself. Damian clearly didn't mind that Melissa had decided to commit to herself – and admitted that he would like a second date.

Fans were quick to discuss the revelation, with one writing: "So, this girl on first dates who married herself, would she have to divorce herself before she got married again or would she get arrested for bigamy? That [expletive] has blew my mind," while another added: "Hold the phone #FirstDates. She married herself???? WTF."
