Online dating agency Christian Connection boasts it's beating ITV's Blind Date with five 'Connection' couples planning to get hitched. The matchmaking service - which allows UK Christians from all denominations to 'meet, mix and match' - says five couples have met and now plan to get married as a result of logging on. The divine dating experience is developing a cult following, with 4,000 members signing up since the service launched in October 2000. Christian Connection has unarguably beaten Blind Date in the wedding stakes. ITV's matchmaking programme has only seen one happy couple make it down the aisle.
