WILL a Sunderland singleton be whisked off to the island of Fernando’s with the man of her dreams?

Elisha Nicholson, 21, is looking for love on hit ITV show Take Me Out.

With the help of host Paddy McGuinness, she’s hoping to meet a man she can take home to Red House.

After appearing in last week’s show, in which she twerked with a fellow contestant, she’s back on Saturday to try and impress one of four boys.

The show sees a panel of 30 girls all vying for the chance to meet an eligible bachelor and win a trip to the show’s Isle of Fernando’s.

Though we’re not giving away whether Elisha gets a date, she’s still single after filming the series in November. “I didn’t leave my light on for some, but there were three Northern boys who caught my eye as I thought they might like a Northern girl,” she said. “Paddy is a massive character and I had a lot of fun with him, he used to comment on the way I say things because of my accent. He was always coming over to me to ask for my answers, but you don’t know how much will be shown once they’ve edited it.”

Elisha, who works as a beauty therapist at The Doll’s House Beauty Boutique, said: “It was such a great experience and I would recommend it to any single girl who’s looking for a laugh.

“My mam entered me for the show as she wanted it to boost my confidence. I’m a real girl who’s happy and I wanted to meet a nice, happy guy. Being on the show was a massive confidence boost. Coming down those stairs every day was unbelievable. And I loved having my hair and make up done by all the people back stage.”

The dating show, which has coined phrases such as “no likey, no lighty”, regularly attracts around four million viewers.

l To see if Elisha finds her match made in heaven tune into ITV on Saturday at 8.05pm.
