The 23-year-old semi-professional footballer from Barnsely is looking to find someone he can share life with. He describes himself as loyal, trustworthy and family-oriented and is  a secret  High School Musical buff.

Speaking to ITV about what gives him the ‘ick, he said: “When someone’s stuck up. They can be a 10/10 but if they’re stuck up… another one for me is bad oral hygiene and a random one is ‘birthday make-up’ - you know when make-up is done professionally for an event and it’s just too much, like blue eyeshadow and stuff? Girls don’t need that.”
