A PERSONAL trainer has set pulses racing by appearing on a new dating show.

Kevin McKeown, from Kirkintilloch, appeared on episode two of the BBC3 eight-parter ‘The World Series of Dating’ recently.

The 26-year-old proved a hit on the show which is hosted by US comedy star Rob Riggie and combines speed-dating with sport.

He was tasked with impressing a girl with his chat-up lines without being ‘buzzed’.

Kevin outlasted all the other male contestants and is now set to appear in the final of the show at the end of the series.

He said: “I am a confident lad, I take pride in my personal appearance. I have the gift of the gab, so this show appealed me.

“It was a good laugh and I think I came across well.”

Find out how Kevin does by tuning in to the rest of the series on BBC3 on Mondays or catch-up on iPlayer.
