MELANIE Sykes has been making waves after splashing out on a trip to Venice and enjoying a six-day fling with a gondolier.

The 50-year-old ex-Boddington beer girl was spotted locking lips with Riccardo Simionato, 23, on the trip.

She told fans only she was feeling “just a bit giddy.”

But she didn’t stop there after first meeting him last Saturday and she was still with him on the final day of her holiday on Thursday, when they were spotted arm-in-arm.

Riccardo, when questioned about the fling by the Mail on Sunday, said: “I don’t remember. I meet a lot of people.”

He wasn’t bothered about the 27-year age gap at all.

Riccardo added: “Beauty is relative.

“Maybe what in your eyes is beautiful, isn’t to me.”

She was on the trip from last Saturday until Thursday in the romantic Italian city.

Melanie is twice-divorced and has two sons aged 18 and 16.

She needed the break after getting into a war of words with Celebrity Juice host, Keith Lemon, saying he had a “limited vocabulary”.

He later hit back, saying it hasn’t stopped him winning “two Baftas and two NTAs” — which is more than Mel can claim.

Comic Leigh Francis, who plays Celebrity Juice host Keith, has revealed he privately messaged Mel after she made her remarks in an interview at the weekend.

He said: “I reached out to her and asked why she didn’t like me. She said, ‘It’s not you, it’s your on-screen persona’.

“Well if anyone’s watching and you have a limited vocabulary, you can still win two Baftas and two NTAs. I don’t want to boast about all the things I’ve won.”

Mel, the ex of Olly Murs and Steve Coogan, said in her interview: “Sadly, in all realms of life, most men are pretty basic and disappointing.

“I feel a bit sorry for British men who have adopted the limited vocabulary of the television character Keith Lemon when talking about and to women.

“I would be surprised, and indeed it would be a miracle, if any of these men are actually getting laid.”

But Keith, who made Channel 4 hit Bo’ Selecta!, has reverted to what he knows best and made light of the quarrel.

He joked that the next series of I’m A Celebrity, to be filmed in Wales, will have a Bush Tucker Trial with Mel.

On an Instagram Live, he said: “You might be stuck in a dungeon with Mel Sykes, who says you’ve got a limited vocabulary and you’ve got to convince her that you know loads of words.”
