A couple who met on a dating website for ugly people are set to marry.

Tom Clifford, 36, and Janine Walker, 31, met less than a month ago on dating website, theuglybugball.com.

The couple got engaged after just four dates.

Mr Clifford, a carpet fitter, and Miss Walker, a shop assistant, share a love of junk food and TV dinners.

“I’ve been a joke to women for years because of the way I look,” said Mr Clifford, who has been single since 1998. “I always thought I was too ugly to meet Mrs Right but my life changed when I met Janine.”

“She’s beautiful and I love her in every possible way. I still can’t believe this is happening,” he added.

Mr Clifford spotted Janine on the site in late August.

In his first email to her, he wrote: “Dear Janine, Just seen your beautiful face on The Ugly Bug Ball and would love to meet up. You live near me so this shouldn’t be a problem.

“I’ve got a face that makes children cry, but as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder – and I think you’ll love me too.”

Obviously Janine agreed!

“I appreciate that Tom isn’t Brad Pitt, but then I’m no Angelina Jolie either.

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and to me Tom’s the perfect, handsome prince.”

The couple is planning a winter wedding, and they have received a free honeymoon to Borth in Wales, courtesy of The Ugly Bug Ball.

A spokesman for the site said: “This is our first engagement, and we are obviously delighted for them both.”
