Sinitta's Celebrity First Dates nerves

Share article:

Sinitta was "very nervous" about going on "Celebrity First Dates".

The 53-year-old television personality split from long-term boyfriend and agent Jason Gale in January after three years together and decided to sign up to the Channel 4 dating show in a bid to find love.

She told The Sun newspaper: "I was very nervous and found the date daunting. I do prefer being in a relationship."

It comes after a source claimed Sinitta has really high standards after previously dating Hollywood heartthrob Brad Pitt.

The insider shared: "She's definitely ready to have another strong male influence in her life. Sinitta once dated Brad Pitt so she's got some very high standards. But hopefully she'll manage to find a man who will treat her right."

Sinitta had previously confessed to "still fancying" Simon Cowell - who she dated in the 1980s - despite him currently being in a relationship with Lauren Silverman, the mother of his three-year-old son Eric.

She said: "There's still sexual chemistry between Simon and I. I still fancy him - there are lots of things I find very attractive about him but I've been programmed to like Simon. It's more than just sex. If it were just about sex, our connection would've fizzled out years ago but it's more than that.

"I always thought Simon and I would grow up and get married. There was a long period where I thought "damn, that should've been me." But their relationship is very different to ours. I'm not sure I can be what Lauren is for him."

And Sinitta isn't convinced Simon and Lauren will get married as she compared their romance to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's, who split last year.

Sinitta revealed: "He won't marry Lauren. Look at Angelina and Brad - they were together for years and had the perfect family. But as soon as they got married it all went wrong and they got divorced. I think he believes that if something isn't broke then don't fix it."
