SYKES FOR SORE EYES
Blind Date star smoulders on the cover of Fit & Well magazine
MELANIE Sykes looked incredible as she posed for the latest issue of Fit & Well magazine.
The 46-year-old stripped down to a black and white bikini to show off her rock hard abs.
The model and TV presenter opened up about how she managed to keep her body in such incredible shape.
Mel explained: “I do four hours exercise a week, but there’s no routine to it.
“Sometimes it’s identical week on week, other times it varies. It usually depends on what friends are doing and what I feel like doing. Exercise for me is fun, social and a habit.”
The mum-of-two mixes up her workouts and recently started going to spinning and cardio tennis classes.
She added: “Someone said to me on Instagram, ‘If it’s fun, it’s not exercise.’
“I absolutely disagree with that. But, for me, even when I’m sweating, my heart’s pumping, I can’t breathe properly and my legs hurt, I find it funny!”
Although Mel doesn’t deprive herself of her favourite foods she tries to stick to the rule of having vegetables with every meal.

“I’m a big fan of Nutella, straight from the jar, licked off a loaded teaspoon. That’s my poison at the moment!”
Last month Mel signed up to join Paul O’Grady in a revamped version of the late Cilla Black’s hit show Blind Date.
Speaking about working on the show, Mel said: “It’s an honour to be joining such an iconic show and to be working alongside my dear friend Paul. I can’t wait to help a new generation find love on the show.”
The Sun revealed lovable Scouser Paul will take the reigns when Blind Date relaunches this summer.
Paul, 61, was a close pal of original presenter Cilla and read a moving eulogy at her funeral in 2015.
Cilla, who died following a fall at her Spanish villa, presented the show on ITV from 1985 until 2003, pairing up lonely singletons.
When his appointment was announced, Paul said: “Blind Date is an incredibly special family show which brought laughter, tears and joy to TV viewers.
“I am honoured to present the brand new series and after speaking to Channel 5, I know the series is in safe hands.
“I can’t wait to see if we can find love.”
