Kelly Brook might be a single pringle since splitting from David McIntosh for the 67th time, but that doesn’t mean she won’t be considering a romance in LA.
Sadly for her, the bosses on One Big Happy, her new sitcom, have taken one person out of the equation. That person? Her co-star Nick Zano.
Bad luck, Kelly.
The 35-year-old has revealed that despite finding Nick ‘lovely’, she’s been banned from dating him to avoid any awkwardness.
Speaking about the Ellen DeGeneres-produced show, Kelly explained: “I can’t date him. We’ve been told we’re not allowed to because, well… we’re just not allowed.
“It would just be awkward for everyone, we’d have a spat.”
However, the ban has actually worked out pretty well for getting chemistry across on screen, with Kelly joking that they’ve ever been warned to not let things go X-rated.
She added: “We keep it all on screen. So when we’re kissing, we really go for it because there’s a lot of pent-up sexual tension.
“But they’ll tell us, ‘This is network television, don’t do this’.”
Still, the ban hasn’t kept the actress from showing a little fancy for her 37-year-old co-star. Well, why not, eh?
She admitted: “In my dreams I’d like to imagine he would date me. He’s a lovely guy. But I do think it’d be easier not to.”
On-set fights probably *aren’t* the best thing to be doing – especially since the reviews for the show so far haven’t all been so positive.
Critics were quick to dismiss the storyline as “insufferable” and “labouring,” slamming Kelly’s efforts as “calamitous” and “unconvincing.”
Valley News wrote: “The writers are taking advantage of Brook’s willingness to do anything. In one of the early episodes, her character appears to be naked.”
The New York Times also slated the show as an “intelligence-insulting sitcom,” saying: “‘Genitals and breasts, to the writers, are hilarious. Lame double-entendres about gay sex, straight sex and bra size are everywhere.”
However, Kelly had something to say back to those who slammed the show, sharing a photo on MazSight that read: “If you have no critics you’ll likely have no success.”
In the caption, she wrote: “There’s a famous saying “critics are the ones that know the way, but can’t drive the car” as much as we need them and I understand their job is to dissect and analyze, It’s really you people that matter.
“That’s why as performers we keep going and do what we do. Despite the years of criticism I’ve had I never lose sight of that.
“May we never stop entertaining or trying. And may the Critics continue to encourage us to do better
