First Dates fans slam diner who rejected "stunner" for her looks

Tom asked Jade to be honest... then ditched her.

First Dates viewers have hit out at a suitor after he rejected a woman, battling self-esteem issues, because of her looks.

Tree surgeon Tom was paired with Jade and told her she was a "stunner" before asking if her lips were real.

When he said he wanted the natural-looking dental nurse to be honest, she admitted spending £12,000 on cosmetic procedures, including lip filler, botox and breast implants after years being bullied as a child for being "ugly".

But Tom then ditched Jade because of the work she'd had done.

I went through so many years of my childhood where I would just cry to my mum, 'I'm so ugly'.

Fans branded him a "hypocrite", "rude" and "out of order" and took to Twitter to blast the 26-year-old.

One posted: "Tom should stick to cutting down trees instead of ditching that poor girl because she got lip fillers... she was too nice for you anyway.

Another added: "OMG Tom is a douche bag. Her lips were really well done and natural looking. She was gorgeous and a lovely girl too. Better out there for her."

A third said: "The hypocrisy of expecting a woman to look like Jade but rejecting her when you find out she didn’t happen to fall out of a tree looking like that AND you know she has serious self-esteem issues, hmph. Hope Jade finds someone safe, sincere and lovely."

Jade, 25, said on the Channel4 show last night: "When I was in year seven, I didn't just have a massive gap in the middle of my teeth but they went outwards.

"I was a bit of a geek. I used to look awful, I used to get picked on at school for what I looked like.

"I went through so many years of my childhood where I would just cry to my mum, 'I'm so ugly'. I think I'm still so insecure and sensitive, really."

After their date, Jade said she wanted to see Tom again but he told her: "I asked you about the lips because I had to ask about them, so that took me aback a bit.

"What I'm looking for would be a little bit more natural," he said before they went their separate ways.

Jade said: "I don't regret anything I did or said because if I want to be with someone in future then I want them to love me for me.

"So I would rather just be myself and find someone who likes me for who I am."

While the show was being aired, she thanked viewers on Twitter for supporting her.
