And the boys better watch out, as he’s admitted he’ll do almost anything to get what he wants.

"I’m ruthless!" he said, adding: “I’m not worried about loyalty, I don’t mind stepping on anyone’s toes. If I want something I’m going to go for it, especially if there’s a girl I’ve got my eyes on."

"I want someone funny, fit and flirty. Attraction is important to me but also I like someone who is not stuck up or too timid because I’m quite outgoing. I want someone to bounce off."
