First Dates Waitress Laura Tott Is Now A Qualified Paramedic
She is best known for serving tables in the First Dates restaurant, but Laura Tott will now also be spending her days saving lives, having qualified as a paramedic.
Lots of people were surprised to learn that the waitress on the popular Channel 4 dating series worked as an ambulance technician when she was away from the restaurant, and now Laura has revealed she has qualified as a paramedic.
On Twitter, she announced that she was about to start working her first shift in the role and confirmed that she would continue to be a part of First Dates.
I DID IT! I'm a registered paramedic. Tonight marks my first shift as a paramedic. Wanted to do this for as long as I can remember. Never been so excited/nervous :ambulance: And yes of course I'll still be doing First Dates :dancer: pic.twitter.com/2u2q9hzZz1

If this has blown your mind slightly, then prepare for it to be blown a little more - in 2015 she was in the Royal Navy.
She previously uploaded a snap of her shipmates, writing: "Exactly a year ago today I joined the Royal Navy. I made some of the best and craziest friends. I'm so proud of all of you and I miss you so much."
Seems like Laura has plenty of strings to her bow anyway, when she's not helping to fire Cupid's bow in the First Dates restaurant... Sorry, that didn't really work. I apologise.
Anyway, many people seemed impressed by Laura's achievement on Twitter.
One person said: "Congratulations Laura. Awesome achievement! So much respect for anyone who does the role of any of the emergency services!! I'm sure it will bring plenty of challenges but if you've got to this point I'm sure you will smash it."
Another added: "Hope @Channel4, @fredsirieix1 & @FirstDates will be upping the wages now they've got a trained paramedic on site every shift dishing out the soup one minute, then knocking out a tracheostomy with a Biro the next."
While a third simply added: "I'd happily Chuck myself under a bus if you could guarantee that you'd be first paramedic on scene.... #lovely"
