Date of Destiny

Article excerpt

Here we go at last - it's Day 1 of Dream Date and your chance to play Cupid!

Today we feature our first six fun-loving entrants and ask YOU to choose which two will survive for the chance to win a Dream Date cruise to Amsterdam.

The girl and the boy who receive the most votes will go through to our final next week - the others will be eliminated.

Each night this week we'll feature three more men and three more women - with you choosing your favourites.

Then next week we'll find out lots more about our survivors and let you pair up the winning couple before they're whisked away in a limousine for a luxury cruise with DFDS Seaways. Our promotions team have been out on the streets of Teesside to sign people up, visiting venues such as the Blue `n' Groovy night at Middlesbrough's Blue Lounge.

But now the time has come for you, our readers, to play Cupid.

There are two ways to vote - either by phone or text.

To phone, dial 0905 020 1502 then when the call is answered, enter the four digit vote code for your favourite applicant.

To text your vote, send a text message starting with the word DREAM (followed by a space) and then the four digit code for your favourite entrant - eg: DREAM 1000 - and send it to 81025.

The phone lines are charged at 25p per minute and calls last around one minute. Text messages are charged at 25p plus the cost of a standard text message at the standard network rate. Lines close at midnight and we will reveal the two survivors tomorrow.

The five men and five women who win the vote from each night this week will be invited to a bowling night next Monday before the final couple set off on their weekend trip to Amsterdam on Friday, March 24.

So come on! Find your favourites below and get voting...
