A glamour model and reality TV star has set up an online dating agency – strictly for BRUMMIES. “I’m looking for love myself,” the Tamworth pin-up, a regular in lads’ mags Nuts, Zoo and Loaded, said.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 Birmingham uk.

“I don’t think they would like the pressure of being given just a few minutes before the buzzers go.

I’d find that intimidating.” Lucy, who once dated England rugby star Danny Care, made her name on dating game show Take Me Out, hosted by Paddy Mc Guinness.

She appeared on the show for weeks in 2012 before getting a man in the final episode. “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,

“Online dating is becoming niche and location-based,” said Jack.“If you’re from Birmingham you wouldn’t really fancy going to Glasgow for a date. Years ago, people turned their noses up, but it’s estimated that in a decade 50 per cent of couples will have met online.” Jack and Lucy have been pals for years and decided to work together after both launched dating sites.Lucy insists that, despite her spectacular shape and army of fans, she’s among them. “Perhaps men feel a little intimidated by me, but the reality is that I’m just a down to earth person.“I’ve also suffered from a lot of jealousy from other women but it’s based on false views. Years ago dating agencies were seen as a desperate thing to do, but now, with people living such busy lives, it’s becoming the norm.“Birmingham needs somewhere for single people to go – but it needs to be done in the right way.“People might feel intimidated to go speed-dating on their own.
