Why we love Melanie Sykes

Before a stunning brunette asked “Do you want a flake in that, love?” in a dulcet northern tone, few believed drinking bitter to be a sexy activity. After selling us Boddingtons dressed in a bikini and a saucy ice cream vendor outfit (thank God our local ice cream man doesn’t dress so skimpily), Melanie Sykes graduated to bigger things: a regular slot on the Big Breakfast, an FHM cover shoot and two top ten finishes in FHM’s 100 Sexiest poll. It’s been more than ten years since she and her fellow “British TV Babes” donned their finest black lingerie on a memorable fold-out cover, but an appearance in November 2008 issue proved she is still one of the hottest talents on the idiot box.
