Gemma Oaten is hoping to meet her Mr Right in 2021.
The former 'Emmerdale' actress – who played Rachel Breckle on the ITV soap from 2011 to 2015 – is keen to meet someone "tall, dark and handsome" next year.
She said: "It'd be nice to think next year I might meet somebody who makes me smile – but that doesn't define me.
"My ideal man would be someone tall, dark and handsome, who can make me laugh."
However, if the 36-year-old star's pet pooch Ruby isn't a fan of one of her potential suitors then she will have to wave goodbye to them.
Speaking to Closer magazine, she added: "But if Ruby the dog doesn't like them, they're gone."
Gemma – who portrayed Sydney Somers on 'Holby City' from 2017 to 2018 – has previously admitted she has mates who "disappear" when she is "not in the limelight much".
She said: "My job means I'm in the public eye, but it comes in waves. I've had mates who are there when I'm in the press, but disappear when I'm not in the limelight so much.
"Working away from home shows who my real friends are – those who will still be there for me even if I haven't seen them for months.
"I can count my friends on one hand – if you only have a handful of people who will be there for you, support you, and love you always, then you're super lucky and you should cherish that."
