‘I wish I could be a little more athletic, but when you’re born with these gigantic boobs… I’ve had them since I was 13, and then they got bigger when I was pregnant and had the baby.
‘It’s not about having muscle or cut abs. I don’t have abs because I’m not “I need to be like a fit model with a perfect body.” That would take too much effort!’
Brunette beauty Melanie, who joins host Paul O’Grady for the comeback of Blind Date, praised the news that the show is now welcoming same sex couples – a move she called ‘long overdue’.

Based on the answers they receive, they then choose one contestant to head on all-expenses paid holiday with them.
