Myleene Klass is feeling nervous but excited about life as a single woman – and she’s determined to regain the weight she’s lost
Picking up the pieces after the painful collapse of her marriage to bodyguard Graham Quinn, Myleene Klass has thrown herself into her work commitments – jetting to China last week to present Miss World.
But after the star, 34, found herself receiving lots of attention from male admirers during the trip, pals say she’s finally decided she’s ready to get back in the dating game, telling friends: “I’m petrified, but nervously excited!”
A source says: “Blokes have been hitting on her and she’s decided that, while it’s scary, she’s ready to move on. Myleene went for drinks with a group of people out there and was even talking about a ‘cute’ guy she met.
“She was asked out and, while she’s not looking for a boyfriend, there’s no harm in having a little fun to get her confidence back. She says she’s out of practice on the flirting front because she hasn’t dated in over 10 years – but she’s looking forward to it!”
A pal adds: “She feels out of her comfort zone – plus she doesn’t feel like the typical single girl, because she’s a working mum with two kids. But Myleene is excited too – her friends are telling her to just go for it.”
Myleene’s exotic trip came shortly after a stint in LA, where she was pictured playing in the sea with daughters Ava, five, and 17-month-old Hero. She was even pictured chatting and laughing with what looked like a hunky surf instructor.
But, from the look of her bony chest, it was clear that Myleene’s recent heartache has taken its toll on her figure. Husband Graham, 37, ended their 11-year relationship in April, just six months after they wed, and in the aftermath Myleene lost a stone from her already slim frame. “She’s a tiny size 6 and worries her boobs have almost disappeared,” says a pal. “She hates being bony.”
Now sources say that, as she prepares to date again, Myleene is determined to regain her size 8-10 curves. Pals reveal that, while she admits she’s “still on the skinny side,” she’s trying to find her feet, balancing work and motherhood.
“She knows she’s a bit too thin and she worries it makes her look older, but she is eating,” says a pal. “She says she’s run off her feet juggling everything.”
The source adds: “She still finds it hard that she and Graham only communicate to discuss the girls, but she’s feeling better and loving her independence. And the male attention has put a smile on her face. She just wants to get her confidence back.”
