Nicole, 45, (pictured), who has been single for two years, is an actress and singer 


Dating Past

My career has been important to me, but I’ve still been in four serious relationships throughout my 20s and 30s. However, my job means I could be away from home for long periods filming.

Pre-Date Nerves?


Single for two years, no children.


Actress and singer.


Someone tall, dark and handsome. He’ll be funny and will love the country as much as the city.

No, the prospect of a blind date doesn’t reduce me to a bundle of nerves. I was more excited about an evening out. I’ve been living with my parents during lockdown and the idea of a date was fabulous. It’s my first one in three years.

First Impressions?

I’ve always fancied Italian men, but I did not expect the ridiculously perfect, handsome, tanned guy who arrived at our table. He smelled good and was beautifully dressed in a fitted, light-blue suit.

Easy To Talk To?

Lorenzo is someone who likes to talk a lot and one of his favourite subjects is himself. He told me I wouldn’t have fancied him in his 20s. Apparently, he had zero confidence because he was paranoid about having a rather hairy chest.

I appreciate his honesty. Lorenzo has twin sons and told me it was a bit of a surprise when he discovered he was going to be a father.


LIKED? Lorenzo is charming.

REGRETS? It’s a shame we didn’t kiss.


Embarrassing Moments?

Lorenzo wasn’t sure what the Italian word for scallops was and so I attempted to mime them placing my hands against my boobs to illustrate the shape of their shells. Lorenzo was a complete flirt and said: ‘Oh, Nicole, don’t do this. I won’t be able to take my eyes off you.’

Did Sparks Fly?

Of course, I fancied Lorenzo, most women would. He’s a good-looking and sexy man. Lorenzo said all the right things, he is touchy-feely and winks a lot. He made it crystal clear he prefers older women.

See him again?

Yes. As a friend. I’m not sure either of us wants to take things further. Lorenzo spent the first half of his life studying and feeling unattractive and is now making up for lost time.

What do you think he thought of you?

He loved that I’d been to Naples and knew about Greek and Roman literature. Although I’m deeply offended that he didn’t try to get me into bed — he’s Italian, for goodness sake. On a serious note, I’m looking forward to settling down with someone and, right now, Lorenzo isn’t.

Would your family like him?

They’d be worried that I’d get my heart broken!


Dating Past

I’ve never had a long-term relationship, the longest I’ve been with someone is a year.

My surgical training came first during my 20s and in my early 30s I relocated from Naples to London. My children were a happy surprise, they live with their mother and I see them on a regular basis.

Pre-Date Nerves?

Not at all. I don’t want to minimise the date though because I was curious and excited about meeting my match.


Single for two years with twin boys, six.




Someone independent and clever. I’m 6ft 2in and prefer girlfriends who are tall, too.

First Impressions?

Nicole is a beautiful, confident woman who has an attractive figure. She made a good first impression and was wearing a lovely dress.

Easy To Talk To?

Mamma mia, yes! The date started well because we both ordered meat. We enjoyed the steak, which was almost as good as sex.

I was curious about Nicole’s job as an actress, but I don’t watch TV, so she showed me a couple of series she had been in. Nicole is from a family of doctors too, so she understands the kind of working life I have had.

We touched on my hometown of Naples. I like that she was knowledgeable about Latin and ancient Greek. I’m teetotal, but I was fine with Nicole having a couple of glasses of wine. I stuck to Diet Coke and cappuccino.

Embarrassing Moments?

No. At this stage of my life it is almost impossible to get embarrassed.

Did Sparks Fly?


LIKED? Nicole is a really nice person.

REGRETS? No, definitely not.

COFFEE OR CAB? Cappuccino.

I don’t want to be mean about Nicole because she is fabulous and the four hours we spent together were truly pleasant, but sadly I didn’t feel that spark.

See them again?

Nicole is a charming woman. She is beautiful, intelligent and good fun. That’s why I’d see her again as a friend.

What do you think she thought of you?

She seemed to be happy to have met me and we have messaged one another since the date. I sent her a clip from the Eddie Murphy film Coming To America; it’s one of my favourites. We’d talked about it at the restaurant and I wanted her to see it.

Would your family like her?

Yes, of course. She’s a confident, intelligent, beautifully proportioned woman in the prime of her life, not a silly insecure twenty-something.
