The Wandsworth mum has spoken out about her horrific experience over the years over the years. When the family were on holiday in May 2013 when they were thrown overboard in the Camel Estuary and suffered catastrophic injuries as the boat went out of control.The mum, of Wandsworth, South-West London, told how Sky executive Nick fought for their survival even as the boat bore down on them, ordering them to stay together. Nicholas, 51, was killed along with eight-year-old Emily, while nine-year-old son Kit needed 20 operations to save his life, eldest daughter Amber was left with scars on her leg and hand and Victoria had to have the lower part of her leg amputated. Now the 43-year-old has returned to the dating game – but admits her leg causes her confidence issues, saying: “It does make me self-conscious about myself physically.
Victoria Milligan, who lost her husband, her eight-year-old daughter and part of her leg in a horrific speedboat accident four years ago, has revealed she is ready to date again – after being introduced to Tinder.But she did have two brief romances with men she met on other dating websites. In the past you met someone through your friends or through work. Sometimes when I’m getting out of the bath and putting my prosthetic leg back on I think: “Oh God, that’s so unattractive.” A year after the accident, Victoria had a brief fling with her children’s music teacher but admits she wasn’t ready for a new relationship because she hadn’t grieved properly for Nico.Now so much of dating is on the internet, so you’re meeting complete strangers. “Hello, single, widow, trauma victim, amputee.” That’s not exactly going to get the masses swiping right, is it? She recently joined an upmarket dating agency, where she met a man she really liked and though she’d hit the jackpot.” But after the fourth date, she decided to tell him the full story of the accident, her tragic loss and the truth about her leg.Over the last 20-plus years, our clients have been so happy with our dating and marriage advice that they often ask us about other (difficult or elusive) people in their lives and we tell them exactly what to do!Are you friendly with people who continually hurt you?
They’re not here, so how dare we sit around not making the most of the time we’ve got.” The Wandsworth mum, who says she is always attracted to men that resemble her late husband – tall, with silver-grey hair – started dating again after a friend who had met her husband on Tinder suggested she try it.
