A Derby woman who met her partner on popular reality TV show Take Me Out is now married and has a baby.

Take Me Out is responsible for seven weddings and three babies, with two more on the way, reports The Mirror.

Host Paddy McGuinness, 44, said he believed it is the “most successful dating show ever”.

He said: "I am really proud. I met a little girl the other day whose parents were contestants and I sat there thinking, ‘this person would not be here if mum and dad hadn’t met on Take Me Out.'"

Air hostess Dawn Edwards, from Derby, left her light on for Dan Nash, from Hertfordshire on the show back in November 2010.

Dan won over Dawn by playing Cream’s Sunshine Of Your Love on his electric guitar in front of all 30 single women. Their trip to Fernando’s went swimmingly, and the following year they moved in together.

Interior designer Dan proposed romantically on Christmas Eve 2010 and Dawn said: “I didn’t have any doubt. I said yes straight away.”

Dan said: “I only went on the show for a bit of a laugh, but I ended up meeting someone and falling in love.

“We chatted easily once the cameras were off and we went for a meal.

“I knew I just had to kiss her. It was amazing and it was obvious we were desperate to see each other again once we got back. For me, the spark was instant.”

The loved-up pair, both 32, walked down the aisle in May 2014, then baby Charlie arrived in October 2016.
