The moment Cindy arrived on First Dates
Olive-skinned and brunette beauty Cindy explained that people were often put off by her strong Northern accent.
Stereotyping the Leeds lass as a “typical” Yorkshire girl with a reputation for drinking a lot and “living in the pub”, Cindy was still waiting to find Mr Right.
Somebody that would cherish her proper Northern ways…
Im in love with Northern Cindy already #firstdates

Cindy meets Elan
Cindy met her date, the equally exotic looking Elan, who was half Israeli and half bloody gorgeous.
Oh Fred, stop that!
To be fair, they would make some pretty perfect looking babies.
Cindy and Elan are gonna have the most beautiful babies! 😩 #FirstDates

Cindy’s heart-breaking trauma
Hearts poured out for Cindy as she explained to her date that both of her parents went into critical care over a short period of time.
Her mum was diagnosed with a brain tumour, changing Cindy’s life forever as she said no to a job in Switzerland, settling back home in Leeds to be there for her mum.

Teary-eyed in her piece to camera, Cindy explained how her mum is her hero, and always will be.
She said: My mum’s my hero. The treatment was so tough. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy everyday.
But the road ahead is not a simple one for Cindy, as she revealed the brave front needed for the inevitable future.
Omg Cindy is so amazing. #FirstDates
