A NEWPORT woman will attempt to bag herself a date when she appears on tonight’s episode of Take Me Out.

Jess Whatmore, 26, from Langstone, applied for the show after being persuaded by her mum and friends.

Miss Whatmore said: “My friends thought it would be hilarious if I applied.

“I’m young, single and if I get a date with a man that’s a good laugh, then why not?

“I’m more excited than nervous, if I’m totally honest.”

The ITV1 show, which airs at 8.50pm, gives 30 women the chance to turn off their light if they don’t wish to date a male contestant.

The man gets to choose which woman he’d like to whisk off if any lights remain on after three rounds.
