Charlotte Church thinks "desperate" Gavin Henson is "a joke" for taking part in The Bachelor!

Channel 5

Gavin Henson's ex-wife Charlotte Church has hit out at the rugby hunk after it was revealed he would be taking part in the UK version of The Bachelor. Describing her ex as "desperate" and "a joke", Charlotte is understood to be happy she's no longer with Gavin!

The new Channel 5 series will see 25 woman battle it out to date the 29-year-old hottie when it airs later this year. Filming for the show is currently underway in an exclusive villa in Spain!

A source told Reveal magazine: "Charlotte thinks Gav's a bit of a joke now. After the way he insisted on being taken seriously as a rugby player, this all seems quite funny.

"She always knew he wanted to do TV, but she reckons what he's doing now is just a bit desperate and embarrassing."

The insider continued: "Charlotte's so happy she's no longer with Gavin. Splitting up with him was the best thing she ever did. Things with [her new boyfriend] Jonathon are going strength to strength. They are getting on really well. He lives with them and kids adore him."

Meanwhile Gavin said: "I really feel the time is right for me to find a girl to hopefully spend the rest of my life with.

"It can be hard in my situation to meet woman and The Bachelor will give me the unique opportunity to go on some incredible dates and spend some incredible dates and spend quality time getting to know amazing woman from all over the UK"

The series will air on Channel 5 later this summer.
