Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Louis Smith needs a girlfriend!

Louis Smith (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing star Louis Smith has revealed he "needs" to find a new girlfriend.

The hunky Olympian has been single since splitting from his previous partner earlier this year, when he started on the show.

Speaking to What's On TV, Louis revealed: "I do need to find someone. I'm not sure yet whether it's better to find someone in the same industry as me or someone completely under the radar."

He added: "What I really like is, when I finally get a day off, on a Sunday I just want to chill. Wake up with my girlfriend, stick the kettle on, get the blanket, chill out on the sofa, watch some movies, no make up, not having to impress. Just chilling."

Despite being rather fit and buff, Olympic silver medalist Louis confessed he lacked confidence when it came to girls.

Louis told the magazine: "I am quite shy. I'll only go to talk to a girl if I'm feeling extra confident and that is normally after a few beers."

Louis explained he was hoping to find someone in his new house, which he helped to design and build himself.

Louis said: "I've pretty much finished building a house - got the windows and doors going in.

"I helped design it, I added little tweaks. I did it way before the Olympics and left my mum in charge.

"I've got two gothic stained glass windows in the living room and the angels [tattoos] from my back are in the glass."

Tune in to this week’s show on Saturday 3rd November at 6.30pm for Strictly Come Dancing with Strictly Come Dancing: The Results on Sunday 4th November at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
