Skip to comments.A very ugly break-up! Man splits from Woman he met on website for the aesthetically challenged

The self-confessed 'ugly' couple who got engaged through Britain's first dating agency for the 'aesthetically challenged' have split up. Tom Clifford and Janine Walker, who shared a mutual love of junk food and TV dinners, parted company last month following a whirlwind online romance.
The couple hit the headlines last October after meeting on www.theuglybugball.com.
They became engaged after only four dates and less than a month after joining the site.
Mr Clifford, 37, and Miss Walker, 32, were originally planning a winter wedding near their respective homes in Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire, but postponed the date and have now separated. Friends believe Mr Clifford - a carpet fitter who has a 'face that makes children cry' - may have got cold feet.
Jessie Bridge, 31, who has known Miss Walker since childhood, said: 'All I'll say is that Janine and Tom have very definitely broken up. 'It wouldn't be right for me to divulge information about the split, but I will say that Tom has been acting edgy about wedding plans for some time.
'Objectively-speaking, it may well be that the thought of marriage pushed him over the edge.'
Mr Clifford, who has been single since 1998, spotted Miss Walker on the site in August 2010.
His first email to her read: '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.

Ugly ducklings: Tom Clifford and Janine Walker were planning to marry in December after meeting on Britain's first dating agency for ugly people but had postponed the wedding till this summer
She looks exactly like a very thin woman I know! Wow!
They’re a bit overweight - but I’d not think of either as ugly.
The Romantic in me is saddened by this...I had such hopes for this couple
The thing is, the guy can't do any better unless he wins the lottery; heck, he already lost LIFE'S lottery. I say "marry her".
Dude should cut his hair. He looks like a lesbian.
I truly don’t see either one of them as ugly.
Heavy, yes, but not ugly.
Somewhere, somehow, there is a tiny subgenre of online porn that would LOVE to employ them.
They look totally normal, a couple of haircuts and a change of clothes and they are just an overweight couple.
They both need a haircut and a lot of time on the treadmill.
They’d shape up OK.
..and lose the man-boobs.
She looks like Pjork.
I say they’re guilty.
They’re not ugly. Could use a few styling pointers possibly and lose a few pounds, but ugly? No.
“She looks like Pjork.”
You win, sir!
The website should be renamed as www.meetafuglyone.com
We need Laz for the final determination.
seriously I agree ...not Brad Pitt or Jolie but not ugly ....Maybe they need to work on their self esteems
