A glamour model and reality TV star has set up an online dating website – strictly for BRUMMIES.
And stunning Lucy Harrold will be first in line.
Lucy, who wowed fans in ITV’s dating game show Take Me Out” has teamed up with online match-making entrepreneur Jack Knowles and PR guru Lisa Smith to launch BirminghamLove.co.uk.
The 25-year-old hit on the website idea after uncovering a distinct lack of opportunities for those looking for lasting love in Birmingham.
And she should know – she’s one of them.
Lucy, who once dated England rugby star Danny Care, made her name on dating game show Take Me Out, hosted by Paddy McGuinness. She appeared on the show for weeks in 2012 before getting a man in the final episode.
“No regrets,” she laughed. “That was definitely one of the highlights of my career and I made a lot of friends who I’ve kept in touch with.”
Money may not buy love, but online relationships have certainly made a wealthy man of Jack, from Stratford-upon-Avon.
The 25-year-old’s Complete Dating empire boasts 300,000 members. And last year he teamed up with Big Brother winner Chantelle Houghton to launch a cyberdating venture for single mums, datewithchantelle.com.
“Online dating is becoming niche and location-based,” said Jack.
Jack and Lucy have been pals for years and decided to work together after both launched dating sites.
The sexy model’s single days may be numbered, however.
