Multi-talented Judi Shekoni is a romantic at heart but her busy lifestyle has swamped her relationships.
âThis is going to be perfect for me. I can just be me and donât have to worry about the phone ringing and going to auditions,â she says.
Star sign: Aries
âIâm not a long-term relationship girl - the longest Iâve been out with anyone is about seven months. I have a boyfriend for a while but no two-year relationships or anything. Iâm never in one place long enough.â But Judi, a model, actress, presenter and businesswoman who splits her time between LA and London, knows what she wants in a man. âI like him to do the chasing. I look for someone who is tall, with a personality and a sense of humour. Thatâs essential,â she adds. âI spend a lot of time in America but Iâve got a British sense of humour â self-deprecating, sarcastic and ironic. I like intelligence, ambition, creativity and a good body. I suppose I go for anyone from Brad Pitt to 50 Cent, so I guess Iâm not fussy. âIâm 5ft 11ins tall so it can be disappointing when I spot a really hot guy but when he gets up heâs still the same height as when heâs sitting.
âThis will be a chance to fall in love and Iâm definitely open to that idea â itâs a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Usually, when I go on holiday, I have a little romance and thatâs nice.
âIf I like a guy, I will give them a bit of a hint. I donât think you should be like a brick wall. It will be eye contact or maybe a smile and if they donât recognise that then maybe some sexy body moves.â
Judi, who appears in the film Private Moments and has a lead role in a new American show, got four A-Levels at school but turned down a university place to pursue a TV and film career.
âI like a man to have style and to take care of himself â I canât stand blokes who are sheep and donât make any effort. Lazy boys are a real turn off.
âWhen I fancy someone I like a bit of spark, a bit of danger and excitement, thatâs what I find attractive. I donât want someone saying Iâm beautiful and perfect, that would be awful.â
Judi, who has been single for six months, is looking forward to the beach, barbecues, sunsets and maybe even a bit of dancing.
âItâs one of my weak-spots. When Iâve had a glass of wine Iâm convinced Iâm the sexiest dancer in the world. I think Iâm really hot and could get any guy in the club when the truth is probably something different and you wake up the next morning embarrassed.
âIâm looking forward to it. Iâve got lots of energy and donât have any fear. I like making people laugh and I can laugh at myself so I hope I come across guys who find that attractive.
âThis is going to be intense and personal. Weâre going on dates and people are going to have to say what they think which will be quite harsh. But I can stick up for myself and Iâm going to enjoy making new friends and enjoying the experience.â
