MELANIE Sykes leaves us bowled over by her figure — as she hopes fans will go pottery for her new show.
The television and radio presenter, 49, has started filming for the new series of The Great Pottery Throw Down, which has now been picked up by Channel 4, after being axed from the BBC.
The show was controversially scrapped last July, despite healthy audience figures, but it was rescued after a petition was launched online, and signed by more than 30,000 fans.
Taking to social media to announce the news, Melanie posted posting a picture of herself at Middleport her on Instagram with the caption: “@middleportpottery you are a beauty. Loving working around this amazing place. Filming the next series of the #greatpotterythrowdown and loving it #pottery #stoke”
She will be taking over from fellow broadcaster, Sara Cox, 44.
Mel set pulses racing last month sharing a sexy bikini snap with over 200,000 Instagram followers as she made the most of the British heatwave with a trip to the beach.
She also showed off her gym honed body in a paisley print bikini after working with celebrity personal trainer Alex Marks.
The rumoured girlfriend of Steve Coogan credits her stunning physique to hardcore training and yoga sessions.
The Alan Partridge star and the model are said to have hit it off after meeting at a launch party for his film Stan & Ollie in January.
