Take Me Out Girls 2012 on ITV1 – Season 4 Photos & Details

Posted on the 05 October 2012 by Neilmonnery @neilmonnery

It’s back folks. Take Me Out sandwiching The X Factor. Saturday nights with Paddy and Dermot. What more could we want? Yet again Mr Paddy McGuinness is trying to team up men from his love-lift with his flirty thirty in an effort to bring love and happiness to the world. Take Me Out has been going for three runs and this is the fourth and it has already been commissioned for another two after this so Take Me Out fans rejoice as the dating show is set for a long run on Saturday nights for a good while yet.

This year we have a full selection of thirty women to start with. Last year we had 29 because one poor girl won a date with a guy and then the producers found out about his criminal past and therefore she was completely airbrushed out of the show. Harsh. Still we have thirty women who from Saturday we’ll see coming down those stairs hoping to return up them hand in hand with a gorgeous date on the Isle of Fernando’s!

I have compiled all the original flirty thirty photos and their basic details. I hope if any of the girls get around to reading this they won’t think of me as some saddo (I am but please don’t think of me as such) and take my comments in good jest (certainly you Erica – seriously Trypophobia?). I hope you all enjoyed the show and enjoy the incoming barrage of fans on twitter and facebook (and probably the odd one or two in the comments here – the post on the last series got 207 comments (so far) so you may want to check for the odd piece of fan chat and guys pretty much only ever leave positive comments so good for your ego).

Anyway you didn’t come to this blog for my waffle. You came here for photos and details about the girls. So I shall just get on with it and in the immortal words of our favorite Bolton lad (well I do like Sheephead too – what has happened to Sheephead?) it is time to…

Bring on the Girls…

Angela Take Me Out Series 4

Angela

Angela’s Details:

26 years old
Probation Officer
From Exeter
Been single for six months

Random Fact: Angela used to be a goth and has appeared in a Bollywood production.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: I can very much see her as a goth!

Caroline Take Me Out Series 4

Caroline

Caroline’s Details:

30 years old
Litigation Lawyer
From Sheffield
Been single for 18 months

Random Fact: If she could, Caroline would live off mushy peas, wotsits and Horlicks.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: Smart, bit ditzy, bit quirky, ticking a lot of boxes!

Caroline B Take Me Out Series 4

Caroline

Caroline’s Details:

40 years old
Radio DJ
From Bournemouth
Been single for nine months

Random Fact: Caroline can recite every single lyric to any Chas n Dave song. Scary…

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: She works in local radio. I’m envious!

Catriona Take Me Out Series 4

Catriona

Catriona’s Details:

22 years old
Retail Analyst
Originally from Glasgow but now lives in London
Been single for one year

Random Fact: She is also a big fundraiser and has raised thousands of pounds for a Hospice that means a lot to her family. One charity challenge involved a Zip line across the River Clyde.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: She raises a lot of money for charity which is excellent but she says she actually enjoys dates. I question her sanity. Dates are evil (well maybe evil is a strong term…dinner dates are evil!)

Chanelle Take Me Out Series 4

Chanelle

Chanelle’s Details:

20 years old
Cosmetic Co-ordinator
From Manchester
Been single for two years

Random Fact: Chanelle lives with her Nana who is her best friend in the world.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: Her celebrity crush is Peter Andre. It was all going so well until then. Still I think she seems like a good ‘un. Also this is the one romantically linked to James Arthur from The X Factor. Did a party succeed where Paddy failed? We shall find out…

Charlotte Take Me Out Series 4

Charlotte

Charlotte’s Details:

22 years old
Receptionist at a car dealership
From Croydon
Been single for two months

Random Fact: She has an irrational fear of clowns.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: Having an irrational fear of clowns isn’t irrational. They are evil. Imagine going on a dinner date with a clown *curls up in the foetal position rocking back n forth sobbing*

Chloe-Marie Take Me Out Series 4

Chloe-Marie

Chloe-Marie’s Details:

23 years old
Primary School teacher
From London
Been single for one year

NB: I have no idea why her photo in the Press Pack isn’t a face on.

Random Fact: She has a fear of cotton wool.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: I like her. Her fear of cotton wool though is a little bit strange but I like her.

Dannika Take Me Out Series 4

Dannika

Dannika’s Details:

20 years old
Fashion Graduate and Shop Assistant
From Essex
Been single for six weeks

Random Fact: She hates when she meets a guy in a club and the next day they find her on Facebook and end up stalking her.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: I like her. Crazy hair is always something that I swoon at. However not liking internet stalkers…*looks at the fact he’s posting about thirty girls on TV* I suspect me and her aren’t an ideal match. I actually do know someone who genuinely does this though. We (me and others who know him) often wait to see how quickly he goes from meeting them but saying nothing to adding them to Facebook. The average time is as soon as he gets home. For the record it isn’t me – as if I’d talk to a girl at a club. Sad but true. Anyway…

Emma Take Me Out Series 4

Emma

Emma’s Details:

18 years old
Just finished her A Levels and barmaid
From Newport
Been single for six months

Random Fact: Self-confessed adrenaline junkie whose best date was going surfing.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: Another one I think I’ll like. Also I really really like what she is wearing in the promotional pic. I’m no fashion guru *looks at his PSU hoodie* but yes I like that look.

Erica Take Me Out Series 4

Erica

Erica’s Details:

29 years old
Personal Assistant
From Manchester
Single for just over a year

Random Fact: Erica has spent an estimated £3000 on an elaborate tattoo on her back and suffers from Trypophobia. Yeah go look it up. It’s weirder than clowns and cotton wool…

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: Her dream man would drive a VW Camperman. I can’t even drive. Not looking too grand for me but has a very likeable face and I’m a face guy. So is a rooting interest to get a good date!

Fennela Take Me Out Series 4

Fennela

Fennela’s Details:

26 years old
Operations Manager
From Suffolk
Been single for two years

Random Fact: Fenella is an active member of the Young Farmers Club and has attended since the age of 10.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: Every year we seem to have one girl who is part of said club and they always like muscular men…

Helen Take Me Out Series 4

Helen

Helen’s Details:

26 years old
Receptionist in a local football center and Chef in the Territorial Army
From Liverpool
Been single for one year

Random Fact: Helen has a special talent as a Marilyn Monroe impressionist.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: She made a guys false teeth fall out on a date she is that funny. Probably going to be great value on the show.

Jamilah Take Me Out Series 4

Jamilah

Jamilah’s Details:

23 years old
Bar manager and mixologist
From Nottingham
Been single for one year

Random Fact: She is both a fully trained mixologist and a fully trained beautician.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: She used to play football for Nottingham Forest’s ladies team. That means she’s better than me at football. Although in all fairness most people are.

Jordan Take Me Out Series 4

Jordan

Jordan’s Details:

21 years old
Trainee primary school teacher
From Lisburn
Has been single forever

Random Fact: Jordan is petrified of moths and the thought of not finding a date on Take Me Out.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: She has kissed men of 17 different nationalities yet has been single forever. Interesting mix. However anyone training to teach the future generation is someone I will naturally like (I think).

Justine Take Me Out Series 4

Justine

Justine’s Details:

25 years old
Speech and Language Therapist
From Essex
Been single for one year

Random Fact: Justine owns a beat boxing parrot called Silver.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: Anyone who has a rewarding job (she works with children with autism) is someone I respect. Her fear is of caves. Not horrific and certainly not Trypophobia – did anyone look up what that actually was? Madness Erica. Madness.

Laura Take Me Out Series 4

Laura

Laura’s Details:

32 years old
Manager at a Bank
From Helensburgh
Been single for two and a half years

Random Fact: She has a huge phobia of birthday cakes with candles on.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: Her ideal man is a real man’s man. I’m out of this but birthday cakes. Really?

Lily Take Me Out Series 4

Lily

Lily’s Details:

22 years old
Graduate and GP Receptionist
From Scarborough
Been single for 18 months

Random Fact: Lily has a phobia of dogs who are off the lead – she has had two terrible experiences where dogs have chased her when she was out running. She also has a fear of frogs, ‘It’s the way they can leap and cling’.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: I can accept those phobias. I hate dogs off their leads. I’m convinced they want to eat me. I’m not mad. Honest guv…

Lois Take Me Out Series 4

Lois

Lois’s Details:

20 years old
Riverboat Skipper and Japanese Student
Been single for one year

NB: No Geographical location supplied.

Random Fact: Her long blonde hair has never been cut and she can play 11 musical instruments.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: Raisins? Raisins? RAISINS? Her fear is of raisins. I’m shaking my head at some of these. However having said that I like her.

Malin Take Me Out Series 4

Malin

Malin’s Details:

19 years old
Flight Attendant
Born in Sweden but now lives in Bedfordshire
Been single for two months

Random Fact: She has been involved in both the Miss England and Miss Sweden beauty pageants.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: she had a recent dating disaster when she went to a guy’s house to watch a DVD – he excused himself to go the toilet. Half an hour later he hadn’t returned and she discovered he had gone to bed. I love that story. Still cheer up Malin – I’ve had worse dates as I’ve had people come around to watch a DVD and make their excuses and leave before the DVD has even started. Oh I fail at dates.

Meggan Take Me Out Series 4

Meggan

Meggan’s Details:

23 years old
Dental Nurse
From Inverness
Been single for eight months


Random Fact: Megan is self-confessed accident prone – she recently shredded a check at work rather than the envelope.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: Megan’s weirdest dating encounter involved her forcing a pound coin between a guy’s front teeth as a bet. It went wrong after it got stuck. Yep I’d call that weird but seems like an interesting one to watch. Also she doesn’t like small spaces. Finally a relatively normal phobia!

Melissa Take Me Out Series 4

Melissa

Melissa’s Details:

28 years old
Housing worker in a male prison
From London
Been single for two years

Random Fact: Melissa used to be a raver but she used to bump into ex-convicts on the dance floor which was very awkward and not a great way of meeting men.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: Her most annoying habit is talking over people when she finds them boring. Oh what’s that Melissa? You think I’m sad for having spent nearly two hours sorting out this Take Me Out blog? Oh I see. Guessing she thinks I’m a bit boring and have no life and she’s right – on both counts. D’oh

Nadia Take Me Out Series 4

Nadia

Nadia’s Details:

24 years old
Merchandiser at Evans Cycles Head Office
From Brighton
Been single for one year

Random Fact: Nadia was moved up a year at school for being a ‘smarty pants’.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: She’s bloody smart so it seems so that is always a huge plus. Her huge phobia is of uncooked egg yolk. Yep that one is fair enough in my book. I have a fear of cooking full stop which is probably slightly less fair but moving on…

Natalie Take Me Out Series 4

Natalie

Natalie’s Details:

26 years old
Full time mum
From Bristol
Been single for two years

Random Fact: She has an ear fetish.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: Doesn’t like spiders or deep water. Yes I’m down with that on both counts. The ear fetish though? Really…? Look I’m a guy who is down with a lot of fetishes but that one really is shall we say ‘out there’.

Oli Take Me Out Series 4

Oli

Oli’s Details:

18 years old
Make up counter assistant
From Worcestershire
Been single for one year

Random Fact: She has a four leaf clover tattoo which she believes will bring her luck.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: Based purely on her press photo and her fear of dogs. I clearly fancy Oli. Also I have a Good Luck Care Bear that I think brings me luck. Match made in heaven…?

Olivia Take Me Out Series 4

Olivia

Olivia’s Details:

18 years old
Receptionist at a garage
From Mytholmroyd, West Yorkshire
Been single for eight months

Random Fact: She’s young at heart and still sucks her thumb and has a comfort blanket called, Twiddler.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: The above random fact is a worry. However my ex had the same issue that she has regarding not being able to touch or look at feet. I thought it was weird then but now…I still think it is abnormal (but less abnormal than an ear fetish so…)

Piri Take Me Out Series 4

Piri

Piri’s Details:

21 years old
Manager of a shoe shop
From Kent
Single for two and a half months

Random Fact: Piri lists her interests as kebabs and cakes as well as dance and rap offs. She also carries mayonnaise and ketchup in her handbag at all times in case she accidentally buys a dry snack.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: I genuinely bought three kebabes last Saturday night (special offer and was then breakfast and lunch on the Sunday). Her fears are normal (spiders, black cats and heights) and she once met a man in the cake aisle at Asda. I’m always in the cake aisle at Asda. Do I sense the stars aligning…?

Ruby Take Me Out Series 4

Ruby

Ruby’s Details:

18 years old
Politics student
From Bristol
Single for almost a year

Random Fact: Her guilty pleasure is Justin Bieber and even has him on her duvet cover.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: Justin Bieber? Oh dear. However the worst is yet to come another posh word of a phobia although this one is fairer than Erica’s Trypophobia. This one is called Tokophobia. Look it up. She is ginger though which is always a double thumbs up situation. Also a politics student? That is very much a good thing in my eyes as an (unsuccessful) politician. Seriously only 90 votes. Still gets to me…

Samantha Take Me Out Series 4

Samantha

Samantha’s Details:

22 years old
Owns her own beauty salon
From Liverpool
Single all her life

Random Fact: She boby pops in her sleep.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: I sleep terribly at the best of times with someone else in the bed but someone who is boby-popping? Also her ideal man would be a millionaire. Not a great first impression…

Thiopia Take Me Out Series 4

Thiopia

Thiopia’s Details:

24 years old
Events Co-Ordinator
From Birmingham
Has been single forever

Random Fact: In her spare time she loves nothing more than studying Victorian criminology and the history of Egypt. Honestly who saw that coming?

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: Again someone who is smart. I always like this. She hasn’t even been on a date this year. She has quite traditional values and likes the man to be the provider. Ok that is me stuffed with my modern-man-ness. (Is that even a word?) Apparently not but you get the gist…

Tonia Take Me Out Series 4

Tonia

Tonia’s Details:

22 years old
Graduate in podiatric medicine
From Galway, Ireland
Been single for one year

Random Fact: Tonia once emailed Stephen Hawking to ask about star constellations. No news as to whether or not he replied though.

Neil’s Initial Thoughts: Got to finish up with one final look at fears and hers are…bees, spiders and movies about possession and paranormal activity. Not too bad. Also she doesn’t like muscular men, men who lives with their mums or men who lack any drive. Shall I bother meeting her or just organize the wedding now?

New Girls:

Of course as Paddy sends off the lucky ladies to Fernando’s they get replaced in the flirty thirty. I haven’t been sent through the background information on the new girls but I’ve just got six photos which replaces the two dates from Week 1 and the four dates from Week 2. So here we go…
