A STUDENT from the Isle of Wight is in the TV dating game tonight (Saturday).
Danielle Kelly, a 22-year-old business, Spanish and Italian language student appears on the ITV dating show Take Me Out, series 6.
"I just thought it might be a bit of a laugh and thought I’d go for it — because there’s always a chance I’d meet the man of my dreams," said Danielle, from Augusta Road in Ryde.
Danielle, who has been enjoying a Chrismas and new year break on the Island from studies at Manchester Metropolitan, "thoroughly enjoyed" filming at the television studios at Maidstone, Kent.
"Despite what people might think about a group of 30 girls together, they were all really nice. We really got on, there wasn’t a trace of bitchiness," she said.
"But people will have to wait to see how I got on in the show — whether I got a date or not — I have been sworn to secrecy by the producers."
Former Ryde High School student Danielle and her fellow competitors have to be ready, bags packed, to go on a date — instantly — they are picked and their experience, warts and all, is screened.
• Take Me Out is on ITV tonight at 8.50pm.
