FIRST Dates star Cici Coleman has revealed that she was one step away from being homeless before landing her job on the Channel 4 show.
The 35-year-old opened up about what happened in a recent Q&A with her followers on Instagram.
The reality star, who is currently living her best life on holiday in Indonesia, told her fans to "ask me anything".
One replied: "Is it a bad thing that I don't know what I want to do or who I am at 25?"
Cici reassured her follower that they had nothing to worry about and said: "Mate. At 25 I was one step away from being homeless.
"I had zero idea what I wanted to do. But I had hope."
The TV favourite continued: "Take the pressure off having the answers. You have your whole life ahead of you to figure out who you are. That doesn't come overnight. It's a continuous lesson.

Cici landed her role as a waitress on First Dates back in 2015 when she was 28-years-old.
She has become a firm favourite on the show, which has gone on to have 17 successful series since it first aired in 2013.
She is no stranger to being on TV however, as she’s also appeared in two short films – Beautiful Girls and Sleep – and starred in Essex Vendetta alongside Danniella Westbrook, Michael McKell, Kris Johnson and Eddie Webber.
The beauty recently travelled over 7,000 miles to Bali for a sun-soaked getaway and has been updating fans with what she's been getting up to on social media.
Cici recently stayed in a stunning three-bedroom villa in the five-star hotel Karma Kandara Bali, located on luxury cliff top resort.
She shared a glimpse inside the accommodation on her Instagram Story last week – which had a huge living room, dining table, infinity pool and tropical garden.
Cici also shared some gorgeous snaps on her grid with the caption:
The TV star also shared a number of snaps on her grid with the caption: "Buzzing. Haven’t even been here half a day and I’m already in love with this place 🥰."
It comes after last week Cici looked sensational in a black swimwear as she celebrates New Year during her luxury trip to Bali.
The waitress showed off her trim physique as she lapped up the glorious sunshine on her sun-soaked holiday.
Posing from a balcony overlooking the sea, Cici sported a pair of leopard print swimsuit rolled down to her waist – after she forgot to pack bikini bottoms.
She told fans: "Happy New Year People.
"Working on my tan, working on remembering to pack a bikini, working on having a day off, working on less filters, working on stepping outside of the box, working on letting go, working on lowering expectations, working on acceptance, working on my perception of other peoples perception, working on my calm.
"Looking forward to another year of growth. Bring on 2022, let's 'av' it."
