Super-rude date man is shameless.
Byline: SARAH VESTY
A PUB landlord whose appearance on TV show First Dates was dubbed the "most awkward ever" has defended his behaviour.
John Cairns, from Kilmarnock, was paired with fellow Scot and HR director Greig at the London restaurant used by the Channel 4 show.
John, 28, left the table before the main course for a smoke break, flirting with two other men on the way.
He then told Greig on Tuesday's show: "I don't find you attractive. I don't have that connection with you, so what's the point of staying and having main courses and dinners?" Greig left and John, who runs the Braehead Bar, ate alone.
He faced a backlash on social media, with viewers calling him "arrogant".
John defended himself, saying: "I could have let him down more nicely but at the end of the day it's a date."
