Gavin Henson The Bachelor

Rugby hunk Gavin Henson has confessed to being both excited and nervous about his new Channel 5 show The Bachelor. The new series will see 25 of the foxiest girls try and steal the hottie's heart , and with filming already underway in Spain, Gavin admits to being ready for the competitive girls!

"I'm massively excited about [the show], but I'm also getting nervous," Gavin tells OK! this week. "I'm going in with a genuine reason - I'd love to fall in love. I’ve been single for maybe 14 months. I do enjoy my own company, but I do think I have a pretty exciting life and I'd like to share that with someone now.


"There are moments I would love to have a girlfriend to share my life with. I look at my parents - they've been together for 30 years and I want to emulate that a little bit. I don’t want to get older on my own. I know I'd be happy, but in a way it's kind of sad as well, so I'm giving this a shot."

Gavin continued: "I hope these girls are really genuine. There'll be some group dates with eight or nine girls, then some with just two girls and by the end I have to send one home. It's going to kill me! That's the one thing I'm dreading."

Asked about his turn-ons and turn-offs, the Welsh rugby star explained: "I don't like girls who've had cosmetic surgery. I like natural beauty, so she doesn't have to do too much to herself. Looks are an instant attraction. I've got a thing for eyes as well.

"But if there's nothing to them personality-wise, after that, that quickly goes away. I'm looking at the whole package. My expectations might be a little high. I don't know, we'll have to wait and see."

The Bachelor starts on Channel 5 in September.
