Take Me Out is over for another series, and there’s no better – or sadder – way to close the show than with a blackout.
Poor Steve from Luton got all nos from the Flirty Thirty, and it all came down to a cowboy outfit bedazzled with rhinestones, teamed with some line dancing to Kesha’s Timber.
There were some terrible excuses for Steve’s demise, such as a problem with his diamonte jacket, and one woman who claimed she was ‘allergic to hay’.
And no one was more gutted about Steve’s rejection than host Paddy McGuinness, who was seen singing a heartfelt rendition of Celine Dion’s All By Myself as Luton’s rhinestone cowboy skulked off the stage after failing to secure himself a date.
And Paddy’s having a bit of relationship trouble himself at the moment, after his marriage to wife Christine hit headlines when the Take Me Out host was spotted walking arm in arm with All Saints star Nicole Appleton on Friday 9 February.
Just days after the photos emerged Christine was spotted crying in her car. The 29-year-old is said to be ‘distraught’ over the photos and has asked Paddy to give her some space.
A source close to the model told The Sun: ‘She has told him she needs some space and time to think about what to next for the best.
‘She wants him to leave for a couple of days. She wants to keep talking but needs a breather. She’s been totally devastated by the pictures.’
It’s rumoured that Christine wants the 44-year-old to move out of their home.
Meanwhile, Nicole Appleton’s ex Liam Gallagher had a typically Liam Gallagher response to the whole thing.
The 45-year-old told The Mirror: ‘She does what she does, and he does what he fucking does. It is what it is.
‘Let them two get on with it – or them three get on with it.’
Take Me Out’s 10th anniversary special will air on Saturday 24 February at 6pm on ITV1.
