- Were both keen Victorian enthusiasts who shared a love of steam punk fashion
- Viewers joked that Joe had been ‘matched with his twin sister’ due to similarities
First Dates viewers have jokingly questioned whether a couple who share a striking number of similarities are ‘long lost siblings.’
In last night’s episode of the Channel 4 show, biologist Jess, 29, from Wolverhampton, was matched with teacher Joe, 27, from Sheffield – a keen Victorian enthusiast who was in search of an ‘old fashioned love.’
And while the pair seemed to hit it off from the get-go, those who tuned in were quick to take to Twitter to suggest they had a lot more in common than just chemistry.
‘They are literally the same person… are we sure they aren’t long lost siblings,’ commented one, while a second penned: ‘Joe’s been matched with his twin sister loll!!’

A third asked: ‘Sure these two ain’t related?’ while a fourth questioned: ‘He’s dating his sister?!’
Before the couple had even sat down for their dinner, they seemed to be getting along like a house on fire – with Jess – who writes for a bird charity – even helping Joe to do his bow tie at the bar.
And as they got to know each other more, they quickly discovered they both had a mutual love of steampunk fashion, while Jess also revealed she had previously worked in a Victorian museum.
However, differences also became apparent – noticeably when Jess informed Joe she wasn’t a fan of video games.

Despite Joe admitting he would like to see Jess again, she had other ideas – adding they would be better off as friends.
‘I would say if we did meet up it would be as friends,’ she explained. ‘I had such an amazing time.’
‘I thought we got on really well conversationally, but I thought we weren’t just quite the right fit.
I would have really have liked to find out more of the deeper, serious things. It’s the no-depth.’
