A hairdresser who was reunited with his ex-girlfriend on ITV’s Take Me Out has explained why the couple were unable to rekindle their relationship.

Nick Knight, from Pontefract, said he and his ex Looci Sohma – whose date on the Isle of Fernando’s was featured on the show at the weekend – wanted different things from a relationship and had decided to go their separate ways again.

Nick, 27, who works with his mum Carol at Niki’s Hair Salon in Baghill Lane, chose to take Looci for a date in a dramatic twist on the matchmaking show.

The pair, who had not seen each other since breaking up two years ago, jetted off to the Isle of Fernando’s for their reunion date.

Nick said: “Me and Looci are totally different people. I still love her and she’s amazing but we have both moved on.

“I would like some stability but she doesn’t want to settle down or to have children and get married, she wants to work all over the world.”

Nick said he had no regrets about going on the show.

He said: “It was a mind-blowing experience, it was insane and everything has gone so crazy after the show. It’s all a bit of fun, you have to take it for what it is, it’s just television.”

His mum, Carol, said: “I’m very proud of him, he handled himself really well under pressure on the show. It just wasn’t to be and I’m sure he will find somebody nice in the future.”
