LUCKY in love Trudy Nelson is jetting off to the ‘Isle of Fernando’s’ after landing herself a date on popular TV dating show Take Me Out.

The bubbly 25-year-old Portsmouth girl won over the affections of quirky karate fan Jon, from Oxford.

She kept her ‘light’ on for the keen meditator as she was bowled over by his martial arts moves and movie appearances.

Trudy was also overwhelmed after Jon performed a piece by Beethoven on a baby grand piano.

And after being picked Trudy said she can’t wait for Jon to ‘teach her some moves’ on their foreign adventure.

But at one point it looked like Trudy – previously dubbed one of the fussiest girls on the family programme – wasn’t going to get lucky as she was shunned by three other men looking for love – one a cheese addict, another who played the organ and a Welshman who loved to surf.

Jon whittled down his choices to just Trudy and blonde Francesca before deciding Trudy was the one for him.

Jon, who admitted he enjoys going to the woods to meditate, asked the pair what name they would give a kung-fu move if they had to make one up.

Trudy replied she was more of a ‘lover’ rather than a ‘fighter’ style and would just want Jon to wrap his arms around her. And her gushy response was enough for Jon to pick her for his date.

Afterwards, Trudy said: ‘I just thought his martial arts moves were amazing, so I am definitely going to have to get him to teach me a few moves on our date.’
