Nadia Sawalha had sex with husband before first date
Nadia Sawalha had sex with her husband before they'd been on an official date.
The 'Loose Women' panellist has admitted it was love at first sight when she first clapped eyes on her beau Mark Adderley while they were shooting a dating show together on location and, after working on 33 episodes, she forced him to join her upstairs in the bedroom because she couldn't resist his irresistible charm any more.
Speaking on the lunchtime show on Friday (18.11.16), she said: "Mark was straight away. As soon as I saw my husband. He is a handsome guy as soon I saw him. He's posh and he's blonde and the first thing I thought was: 'I like him, he will never like me.' I thought he'd want one of those girls with a swinging pony tail and a tight bum and everything. It was a dating show and I was the presenter and nobody fancied the person we'd set them up with. But they all fancied my now-husband. They'd be like, 'Oh he's nice.' And I'd say, 'He is already with someone.' He wasn't but I just had this plan.
"And then a few weeks later we were filming together on one particular location and he said, 'Shall we go to the bar' and I said, 'Shall we just go straight upstairs because it's going to be really embarrassing when I say can we go upstairs later.' I don't know what overcame me, I am not that sort of person."
And their relationship didn't take too long to get off the ground as the 52-year-old presenter realised shortly afterwards that they were expecting a baby together.
She explained: "Then we were pregnant. Well, he wasn't, I was. And then six months later I was pregnant and we were married and now we've been together for 14 years."
Nadia and Mark got married in 2002 and have two daughters Maddy, 13, and Kikki, nine, who are both home schooled by the curly-haired beauty.
