A woman from Great Notley is set to appear on ITV show Take Me Out tonight in a bid to find her perfect man.

Former Notley High School pupil and reigning Miss East Anglia Sophie Whitaker is hoping cheeky host Paddy McGuinness will help her find a date – if her light stays on.

Each show sees four men bid to get the attention of 30 single ladies who keep their light on if they are interested.

The lettings manager said: “I’ve gone on the show to hopefully find a date and hopefully someone I could connect with romantically too.

“I hoped to make lots of new friends and it is safe to say I have most certainly done that and I love them all.

Sophie, 20, said her ideal man must have good manners, be hard working, and be able to make her laugh as well as getting the seal of approval from her mum and sister.

She added: “I must admit, I do fancy the Essex look – tall, muscly, well groomed, slick and good teeth is a big one for me.”
