Glamorous Georgia Graham, from Wallsend, applied to appear on Channel 4’s First Dates programme after failing miserably to find a suitable boyfriend and being single for five years. Georgia’s joy at being chosen for the show soon turned to sorrow when her scheduled date for the night didn’t turn up.
Lesser mortals may have crumbled with embarrassment, but this feisty 25 year-old laughed about the situation and hoped for better luck next time, saying:
“It’s true to say that I haven’t had the best of luck with men in the past few years, and that may be because I am quite choosy; my ideal man would be a cross between Johnny Depp and Zac Efron! Right now it’s back to the drawing board and fingers crossed for good luck in the love department on Valentine’s Day!”
Georgia took to the malls of intu Eldon Square in the heart of Newcastle to spread a little Valentine’s happiness by encouraging shoppers to take part in some fun Valentine’s activities online, including testing out a ‘Love Calculator’ and a ‘Men v Women Personality Quiz’.
Georgia was also distributing stunning orange roses, ahead of a free rose giveaway on Friday 12th & Saturday 13thFebruary from intu Eldon Square’s customer service desks.
