Last Week's Date Exhibit B, 13 Old Town, SW4

Last week Philippa, 32, a PA from New Malden, chose Paul, 36, a property developer from Oxford Why? It was a difficult choice - all of them had heaps going for them.

But, in the end, Paul gave the most balanced answers.

She says: We had a laugh, I can tell you. We ended up at Spearmint Rhino - with lapdancers and everything. I wasn't embarrassed - I've seen naked women before!
