He told The Mirror: “It’s not going particularly well. People don’t ask if I want to go out, it’s all about Strictly.

“It’s odd me being on there but why can’t I, if everyone else is? Just because I’m in the public eye doesn’t mean I can’t be on dating sites.

“My niece married her Tinder date so it does work for some people. And people are vetted online. They have to have a credit card!

“You know their likes and dislikes, you know a lot more than you would do if you picked them up in a bar.”

Online dating is growing in popularity at an incredible rate especially with apps such as Tinder and Bumble making dating a lot easier and low maintenence.

We couldn't imagine what it would be like online dating as a celeb though! Famously Zac Efron signed up for Tinder and ended up with NO matches at all.

We'd happily meet you for a pint Zac!
