‘Muggy’ Mike Thalassitis has finally found his match, asking his date from episode 17 of the Celebs Go Dating series to attend the finale of the show with him in Cape Verde.

The 20 episode series has been geared towards the celebrities finding a date to bring with them for a short vacation in Cape Verde.

However, ‘Muggy Mike’, famous for his brief stint in Love Island 2017, has proved a walking, talking dating disaster.

Scan the web and you will find articles based around ‘12 horrendous Muggy Mike quotes’, ‘7 obnoxious Mike Thalassitis expressions’ and ‘264 times Love Island’s Mike proved utterly grotesque’, etc etc.

The cocksure Essex boy has offended plenty of women with his overly confident approach and bluntness when it comes to discussing sexual attraction.

But, miraculously, in the latest episode of the celebrity dating show and we watched Mike melt as he fell head over heels for date Selene.

Not only playing hardball and turning up late for the date, Selene took charge of the date conversation, almost leaving the former semi-professional footballer speechless.

Mike said: “I really liked this date because it was just a completely different date. She asks me a lot of questions, she takes control of the conversation sometimes, which I like.”

Although the date turned out to be a surprise success, Mike didn’t refrain from his usual quips and comments about sex.

When explaining why Mike picked his date during a blindfolded task, he explained how Selene “didn’t seem like the type that would bow down, or roll over on their back too soon”.

His date asked whether Mike “liked girls that rolled over on their back too soon” with ‘Muggy’ answering with a big fat yes and attempting not to drool.

He said: “Eventually, yeah, it’s got to happen but not too soon. If you do it too soon, I’m not going to take it seriously. Just so I know how long does it take you to roll over?”

Selene looked pretty damn awkward and deservedly red-faced after the intrusive question, and she decided to take the reigns for the rest of the date, probing Mike with questions and steering him away from asking anything inappropriate – good work Selene.

In the end, Mike just about stomached the balls to ask Selene to Cape Verde
