Channel 4 show 'The Undateables' was an emotional affair on Monday night as a brave woman named Tammy met a lovely chap called Gary.

Tammy was diagnosed with meningococcal septicaemia two years ago, after she contracted severe blood poisoning following a meningitis infection. This caused part of her face to become disfigured.

The condition has previously knocked Tammy's confidence, but on the show, Gary admitted to feeling more concerned about his own appearance, rather than worrying about Tammy's.

He said: "I’m bald and I wear glasses and I’ve got a slightly odd-shaped head. Nobody’s perfect. We seem to have a lot in common and it hasn't been an issue at all. It’s been a pleasure."

Gary's comments left Tammy (and a lot of people on Twitter) feeling overcome with emotion.

Tammy has previously spoken in defence of the Channel 4 show after it received criticism for being "exploitative".

"I find that notion insulting. What happened to me can happen to anyone," she said, according to The Mirror.

"I applied to be on Undateables because I was trying to hold on to as much of the old me as I could. I don’t want to be alone for ever and I want to find someone who loves me for me. I am the same me whether I have 50 operations on my face or none."

Let's hope her and Gary both find love in the future.
