Barnsley Girls On Hit Saturday Night Show

Tuesday January 14 2014


Amanda Amanda


DO you watch ITV's hit Saturday show Take Me Out? Two Barnsley lasses are on!

Amanda Brooks, 26, and Grace Williams, 22, are hoping to find love on the mythical island of Fernando's after beating 30,000 applicants to appear on the popular show.

Now in its sixth series, it's established itself as a firm favourite fronted by Paddy McGuinness.

Grace was entered by her friend and said at first she didn't want to enter because she thought she'd make a fool of herself.

Grace, of Mapplewell, said: "It was an unbelievable, surreal opportunity and great for my self confidence. I absolutely loved it."

In true Barnsley style she held no punches when it came to telling the bachelors what she thought of them and even told one singleton he reminded her of her dad.

Amanda, of New Lodge, applied for the show and was called for an interview in Manchester.

"I really enjoyed it and was one of Paddy's favourites," Amanda said. 

"I was happy to represent the town of Barnsley although I can't reveal if I found love on the show just yet!"

Can you imagine if they did a version with 30 blokes instead of 30 girls? No one would ever turn their lights off, they'd all want to date all the girls

Ok then I must be wrong if you say so I did not watch it on the news my eyes and ears are lying. Plus I don't have to go on a dating website or a dating show to find a partner as I'm engaged with two stunning kids. As for me waking up and smelling coffee think these two need to wake up and smell coffee. Let's go on a tv show to build my self confidence up get a grip attention seeking or what think them show are oathetic

Amanda is a friend of mine, and is a stunning lady both inside and out. You sound like a very nasty person anon. Nothing better to do than troll the WAB site.

Anon why do u have to be so nasty towards people u don't know ! Grace is not needy or seaking attention thanks ! U don't even know her to judge her , she's a brilliant girl and does not need to go attention seaking thanks ! Wonder how u got a gf with such a crap personality ! Well done grace !

Reply Posted by anon on Wednesday January 15 2014 at 17:06
Firstly how do u no I don't no her?
Secondly never said needy there your words not mine I said attention seeking.
Thirdly if she ain't attention seeking why the hell is she on a dating show seeking attention from men trying to get a bloke

Reply Posted by Craig on Wednesday January 15 2014 at 17:33
What difference does it make to you? why do you ahve to be negative of someone else's personal fortune? jealousy springs to mind.
