Chloe bags her man on Take Me Out
1:25pm Monday 25th February 2013 in News
A BARMAID had a birthday treat when she bagged her man on the last episode of a TV show.
Chloe Wraith, of Weavers Green, Fordham, was chosen by the very last man to appear on this series of Take Me Out – Joe Rankin.
The episode was filmed on her 22nd birthday in December.
Chloe, a barmaid at the Three Horseshoes in Fordham, said: “I was on it from the beginning to the very end.
“Because it was my birthday I did think ‘If I have got a chance it’s got to be today’.
“Joe had the most lights to turn off, he had 24.
“There was no way I knew he was going to pick me. Paddy McGuinness actually came to me at one point so I got to speak to Joe for ten seconds.
“I suppose he liked what I said.
“When we got down to six girls to choose from you do start assessing who you are up against.
“But I got down to the last two and gave him a really cheesey line and Joe picked me.”
Chloe decided to apply for Take Me Out after her relationship with her boyfriend of three and a half years ended.
She has since become a local celebrity in Fordham, where residents have taken a keen interest in her goings on.
Chloe and Joe were whisked away to the Isle of Fernandos, near Tenerife, for a three –day date.
As well as romantic dinners they enjoyed horse riding – a challenge for Joe as he had never ridden before.
Despite enjoying her time on the show and meeting Joe, Chloe said there unfortunately isn’t a future for them.
She said: “Joe lives in Liverpool. We had a lovely evening but the distance is too much.
“I have made a really good friend out of him though and that’s enough for me.”
