The Sunday Mail reports GMTV presenter Jenni Falconer has revealed details of Justin Timberlake’s aggressive pursuit of her live on the air recently. Jenni recalled the meeting, saying: “Everything he said made me blush. He was saying I use the show as my own personal dating agency. On air, he was just so flirty – and then when he came off camera he goes `Now remember, you owe me a date’ and I was like ‘Oh my God’.” But Jenni added, “After chatting me up, Justin apparently went round half of London with every other girl that he met. He has been a bit of a cad since splitting with Britney. I like bad boys – but I have the sneaking suspicion that I won’t be breaking up with my fella for Justin.”
