Are you looking for love coming into the show? 

Yes, aren’t we all?

Describe yourself in three words.

Ambitious, fun, loyal. 

What is the most surprising thing about you? 

Girls always seem to be pleasantly surprised when I tell them I was in the army. I think it must be the man-in-uniform thing!

Describe your ideal date.

Great food and great company, anywhere with a view.

Describe your ideal partner and what qualities they’d have.

My ideal partner would be loyal, funny, not too serious, ambitious and someone who brings out the best in me. 

Relationship deal-breakers? 

Someone who talks like Paris Hilton! 


Humour, class, style, manners, that special something you can’t describe. 


Ugly feet, bad hygiene, being a slob and bad posture.  

Who is your celebrity crush?

Camilla Cabello, Jamie Ridge or Ariana Grande.
