Actor Sam is looking for love.

Documentary The Undateables (Channel 4, 9pm) THIS series, following disabled people as they go about sorting their (lack of) love lives, has, thankfully, been done tastefully and has proved quite moving.

This week, the final instalment focuses on actor and media student Sam, who has Down's syndrome.

His disability doesn't get in the way of his life - he has a supportive family and has appeared in The Inbetweeners and EastEnders - but he does feel he's lacking in the love-life department.

Meanwhile, Kali, a 20-year-old singer, has Williams syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that causes development problems, but is characterised by cheerfulness and strong language skills. Socially, she's far from lacking, but she is keen to find a new boyfriend.

Hadyn has Crouzon syndrome, a facial condition which has seen him so far undergo 40 operations and has left him partially deaf.

But he's just as entitled to love as the rest of us.
