Melanie Sykes has explained why she fell for cheesy chat-up lines on Twitter - admitting she can't get enough of cheeky men who try their luck.

Fans of the former Boddingtons ad babe were stunned after witnessing her raunchy exchanges with 26 year old Jack Cockings online.

Among the tawdry tweets, the mum-of-two claimed she had "the giddiest knickers of my life" and told Jack: "I've got the raging horn, please take me", before uploading a near-naked snap of herself.

And after followers were left scratching their heads at why the 41-year-old beauty would fall for a guy who unsuccessfully tried to woo Jodie Marsh on the site, Mel reveals she's got a thing for a trier.

She told The Sun: "Men don't really approach me. I think they are a bit scared, to be honest. I mean I get wolf whistles but that's easy from the safety of a van.

"At 41, I've got to that age where I think if men don't want to approach me they can sod off. I like my men wild and unscripted. I'm so naughty, what can I say? I'm a cheeky gal."

OK, love, that's enough of that.

The star then gets deep, and insists she struggled with her body image when she was growing up.

She added: "Cheryl Cole recently said that she wasn't a pretty teenager and I was the same. I came into my own later. None of the boys at school were interested.

"I was very thin, didn't get a figure until aged 17 and didn't bloom until later. I had no boyfriends at school."
