It is not just for people on the autism spectrum although nearly all the series have someone who is on the spectrum. 

There's only been one female autistic participant so far (I mean a main participant, as opposed to one of the matches), which bugs me. I inquired about taking part last year and received a phone call from the producers, but they didn't want to take it any further. Another thing that annoys me is the southern bias of the show, southern coastal in particular. Could we please have a moratorium on all this footage of participants strolling along beaches?! And another thing - I for one would love to see an Undateables set-up in which the woman takes the lead, just for once. It's disappointing that these so-called "remarkable" singletons, for all their claims to see the world differently, are just as constrained by gender norms.

There's going to be a second autistic woman in the latest series, back tonight in its usual 21:00 slot on Channel 4: The award-winning series returns with more singletons looking for love, including film buff Charlotte, who has Asperger's, and Mitch, who was born deaf and lip reads when dating. (S9 Ep1/3)

The previous one was Heather in the second series: Series 2 episode 4: Heather, Gareth & Matthew
