FIRST Dates viewers were left in tears tonight as a posh public school boy’s card was declined when he attempted to pay for the meal.
Calum spent his entire date bragging about his wealth and how his dad was a “city boy” who was so successful he retired at 50.
He also boasted to his date Lucy about how his mother was an actress who “smashed it” in her career.
The posh boy spent his time charming “yummy mummies in Hampstead” and said he had just got back from a trip fishing at a Scottish estate.
But after all his talk about skiing trips and exotic holidays, Calum didn’t have the money in the bank to back his claims and when he went to pay for the meal his card was declined – not once, but twice.
Viewers were left in hysterics and rushed to Twitter to share how much they were left cringing by the moment.

Calum quickly explained he has money in different accounts.
He logged onto his online banking quick sharp and moved around some funds before paying the bill.
But Lucy wasn’t put off and the pair agreed to go on a second date.
