Both Chloe and Abz were matched with potential love interests and the foursome visited a restaurant for a meal together.

Towards the end of the dinner, Chloe’s date made a confession that he had a very famous grandad.

Chloe’s potential suitor Max admitted that he’s the grandson of the late Sir Captain Tom Moore, who raised more than £30million for the NHS during the height of the pandemic.

Speaking about his family, Max said: “Over the last year and a half, two years, we got closer due to like…

“My, so basically, it’s a weird story but my grandad got extremely famous in the first lockdown.

“You know Sir Captain Tom Moore? So that’s my grandad.”

Captain Tom, who was knighted in May 2020, passed away last February after a battle with Covid.

He had spent the last 13 years of his life ­living with daughter Hannah and her family in their £1.2million house in Marston Moretaine, Beds.

In April 2020, he captured the hearts of the nation by starting a lockdown walk around his back garden with the help of a frame.

Just six months earlier, he had ­shattered his hip, but he vowed to take his first stroll since leaving hospital.

After doing his first lap, son-in-law Colin promised him £1 per lap — and challenged him to do 100 before the day of his hundredth birthday.

On April 6, 2020, the day after his first lap, Captain Tom had raised £11.

Ten days later, the total stood at £12million as his spirited efforts in support of the NHS drew interest around the world.

And a month later, he handed over £38.9million to NHS Charities Together — the most raised by one person — after completing his incredible feat.

Paying tribute after his death, PM Boris Johnson said: “Captain Tom Moore was a hero in the truest sense of the word.”
