Cici from First Dates is planning a very different career off screen

'Wanted to do this for such a long time'.

First Dates viewers will recognise Cici Coleman as one of the likeable and very popular waitresses on the Channel 4 show.

However, off-screen in real life, Cici is taking a different career path as she's taking a course in personal training.

Sharing the news on her Instagram account recently alongside a number of fitness instruction manuals, Cici said:

"Wanted to do this for such a long time but kept putting it off. So here we go. Back to school with @fitnesstrainingsolutions, training to be a Personal Trainer. Any of ya'll wanna PT (once I'm passed) hit me up".

She has been sharing updates from her training on her Instagram account too and it looks like she's really excited to kickstart her new career.

Not only that, Cici is also a trained actress and starred in three films after studying a film degree at the New York Academy.

Cici also appeared in drama Essex Vendetta alongside Daniella Westbrook and she has performed in a number of plays.

As fans of the dating show will know, Cici and fellow waitress Laura Tott are the best of friends and have become very popular as a result of their time on the show.

Laura too has a completely different career in real life and served in the Royal Navy before taking on a job as an ambulance technician.
