Sorry ladies, Blake’s taken
IT’S official – 106.3FM breakfast host and pin-up bachelor boy Blake Pattenden is off the market! Rumours are the 27-year-old who has found a new love in Townsville’s Mel Keslake, who had been a familiar face over the years on the Savvy socials pages, but now lives on the Gold Coast.
Apparently the relationship is ‘‘ very new’’ and not even ‘‘ Facebook official’’ yet for the lovers.
NQ Confidential can confirm, however, that the pairing may advance with the bubbly blonde planning on coming home to North Queensland to study health sciences at James Cook University so she can become a paramedic.
Co-host CK Kern, a hopeless romantic, begs to differ and believes the 22-year-old is moving back home for Blakey.
The best mate, who is currently dating Belgian beauty Karolien Selen, is now busy planning double dates for the foursome.
Which will no doubt include long walks on The Strand, picnics at Kissing Point and couple’s board game evenings.
We have done the math and it seems Blake has been seeing Ms Keslake for two months now – they were spotted on a Sunday in January enjoying Cotters Markets together.
This overlaps with his Savvy Setup last month when he went out with 29-year-old client services officer Shanna Hughes to Hogs Breath at Cannon Park – and the pair rated the date an 8 out of 10.
Uh oh. . . Confidential thinks it might be time for Blake to update his status before he gets blocked.
