BIONIC WOMAN star Michelle Ryan has blamed her role in the U.S. TV show for her dismal love life - insisting her newly toned body puts off any potential boyfriends.
The British actress was forced to undergo a gruelling training regime for her role in the remake of the cult 1970s programme, and the punishing work-outs left her with a taught new figure.
But Ryan, 23, is convinced that men find highly athletic women less attractive, claiming her muscled new body is the reason why she is still single.
She says, "I knew playing a woman with bionic strength was going to screw me over with men because they were going to be scared.
"I had this amazing new body and was super-fit and feeling great, but I couldn't get a man."
