The independent comedic thespian reckons she has the worst luck in the world when it comes to finding Mr. Right, and she’s hoping the crowd will support her attempt to raise enough cash to make it to romance capital of the world Edinburgh.

Incidentally, her trip to the Scottish capital will coincide with three week celebration of the arts, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where she hopes to launch her one woman comedy show Diary of a Dating Addict.

After many doomed dates in London, I realised I should spread my net a little wider and take this to an international level, first stop Scotland,” said Anholt. Home to many wonderful men, Gerard Butler, Ewan McGregor, James McAvoy and of course, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Scotland is literally teaming with talent and I want in.
