Speaking about his decision to join this year's show, the new arrival told ITV: "It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity - I’ve got to give it a go. I date quite a lot in London and I’ve been single for three years, so I’m not having that much success in that department, so why not try something new."

He also added that he's ready to "settle down".
