First Dates got emotional on Thursday night when singleton Lana revealed her boyfriend of three years had been secretly planning to propose to her before his life was claimed in a fatal car accident.

The 29-year-old car part saleswoman had no idea that her late partner was planning to pop the question and only learned the news when his mother presented her with the ring he had bought following his tragic death.

Opening up about her boyfriend’s untimely death, Lana’s admitted it didn’t sink in at all. ‘I wasn’t hysterical, I wasn’t anything,’ she said.

‘People are immortal to you if they’re special to you like nothing can happen to them. It throws your life into chaos and then you have to restart and rebuild.’

‘We were buying a house and I didn’t know he was going to propose,’ Lana continued. ‘He was going to propose. He was waiting until we bought the house, and the day we bought the house he was going to propose.

‘The fact he had it all that time, it meant a lot.’

Speaking to her date, Luke, Lana confessed she hadn’t dated in a very long time. ‘It took a long time to get back into the mindset of dating,’ she shared.

Now that three years have passed, Lana finally feels ready to put herself back out there.

‘I think I’m ready now to do something for myself,’ she continued.

Lana was lucky in love on First Dates and landed a second date with Luke after shotting tequilas together and swapping stories about messy nights out.
