A NEWPORT woman that starred in tonight’s episode of dating show “Take Me Out” was left without a date at the final hurdle.

Jess Whatmore, 26, from Langstone, fought off competition from other girls to make it to the final two during her first ever appearance on the ITV show.

But after her impromptu pirate impression, Miss Whatmore’s light was turned off and she wasn’t taken to the “Isle of Fernandos.”

She is now left wondering if she can bag herself a date on the final episode of the series next week.

“To get to the final two on my first show was surprising,” she said. “But it was really good fun and not at all scripted.

“I thought everything might be set up but it isn’t and I suddenly found myself having to answer a question at the end about accents which was terrible.

“It would’ve been nice to go on a holiday and a date with a man that’s good company but at least I get to be on the show again next week.

“It’s strange as you find yourself cheering on other girls and end up happy that they’ve got the opportunity to go on a date.”

Fickle nonsense. Another example of tragic television which serves no purpose other than to entertain mind-numb idiots

Although I wouldn't put it quite so bluntly as Two icy cold hands, I stll see no reason why anyone would want to watch such "shows". Anything wrong with a good book?

"it was really good fun and not at all scripted" why did she feel the need to emphasise that? well its been revealed in the past by disgruntled "contestants" that this example of mind numbing rubbish foisted on us as Saturday night entertainment, is in fact choreographed from start to finish.
Paddy McGuinness should be tried for crimes against entertainment, his cruelly poor attempts at humour make Bruce Forsyth look up to date and funny
God Help Us
