First, we meet our heroine, Mary Foster, 54, whose sparkly dresses and 740-person-strong singles dancing group has made her a celebrity in Halifax’s single community.

Lama El Azrak talks to people who show that singleness and happiness are 100 per cent compatible.

Grace Power takes a look at a program that pairs seniors with canine companions.

Colin Slark visits Dartmouth’s new cat lounge, which pairs lonely cats with humans.

To finish off the show, Chelsea Rozansky stops in to a record store to hear people’s preferred music when they’re feeling lonely.
