The 34-year-old, who has four children from previous relationships, recently ended her engagement to former 5ive singer Ritchie Neville and while the couple still live together, she says it won't pose an issue to prospective love interests.

She was paired with Gary, from Essex, for the Channel 4 show and opened up about missing "a chunk of reality" in her early twenties due to the band's success.

"I'm doing now what I should have done 15 years ago," she said.

And he was gobsmacked at being her first date in such a long time, saying "Jesus Christ ! Are you joking? ‘I’ve got something to live up to then!" when she dropped the bombshell.

During dessert, the extremely candid singer also told her date that she still lives with her former fiance and the father of 20-month-old daughter Ella Rose.

"We share food in the fridge, we don't share a bed. I suppose it will get weirder if we start officially dating - I'll have to stay out those nights," she explained.

Hamilton has four children from four previous relationships and says her children are teased for their "4x4 mum".

"I've literally had four relationships my whole life. I've tried so hard to make things as easy for the kids - it's easy to judge," she also said on the date.

"I'm in the public eye and the press might want to judge me - but I don't feel like he did, he just took me for face value and that was a nice feeling."
