A bikini model who's set to send pulses racing when she appears on RTE's First Dates is urging young women to avoid the Only Fans site after she claims she suffered "horrendous abuse" on it.

Glamorous Dubliner Jodie Felloni certainly catches the eye of her TV date Ronan O'Mahony with her buxom figure.

"I'm double D across the chest and a 25-inch waist, so I'd be quite hourglass," says make-up artist Jodie (32), from Fairview.

Jodie says she had breast augmentation after leaving school.

"I have breast implants, I got them when I was 19," she confirms. "My babies are about 14 or 15 now. I got them when I was straight out of school.

"They were quite expensive but I was quite picky. I got them for a little bit of confidence. I was always one of those girls who wore two bras on a night out. I didn't have a huge chip on my shoulder about it, but it was something I wanted.

"When I went into my first job and I had a bit of extra money, I decided to treat myself.

"At first I regretted it because the pain is indescribable. I don't think anybody really talks about the pain, it was very intense for a few weeks and uncomfortable for a few months, but I'm obviously happy about it now."

Jodie, who works on the Estee Lauder counter in Brown Thomas in Dublin, admits she keeps being asked if she has any connections to "chip shop families" with a name like Felloni.

"I don't speak Italian, I don't cook the food, I don't have any of the culture, I'm very Irish. I've never been to Italy," she laughs. "I think its three or four generations ago my family connections was there."

With a name like Felloni, when asked if she is any relation to notorious Dublin drug dealer Tony 'Felloni, Jodie replies: "No, I don't think so…".

Jodie said she enjoyed her time on the RTÉ dating show with Ronan (38).

"A big thing for me was a guy has to be really confident - and he was really confident and chatting," she says.

"I may not be into him looks wise, but they would have matched us for personality and the fact we both like fitness."

Jodie said she signed up to OnlyFans as she thought she might make some money from it.

"My OnlyFans was not sexual - there were no topless pictures and there were no nudes. People were saying to me for years 'all the gorgeous pictures you post on Instagram, you know there's another site you can post these on and people will pay to see them'.

"But probably, because I wasn't prepared to do what other girls were doing, I didn't make a life-changing amount of money.

"It takes a long time to do the photoshoot, to do hair, do make-up and I'm making a little bit of money, but not a huge amount of money."

She now wants to leave OnlyFans and is urging young women to be wary of it.

"I was bombarded with negative messages every single day," Jodie complains. "I think celebrities and models are glamourising it, I don't think young girls should be encouraged to do it.

Ronan dated two girls when he moved to Australia in 2007 for nearly 10 years and when came home he had two relationships here.

"Normally, I wouldn't use any of the [dating] apps," he say. "If I saw somebody on the street, I'd go up, say hello or whatever. All they can say is no, it's not that bad. I'm not going to feel bad if somebody says no because I asked them out. That's normally how I meet people."

He confirms Jodie would be his type.

"She would be the type of girl I'd approach," he confesses. "She is a very attractive girl. She is a lovely girl, we got on really well. We had a really nice time and it was a great date."
