Spencer Matthews is to star in the UK version of 'The Bachelor'.
The former 'Made in Chelsea' star - who has previously dated Tara Reid and co-star Caggie Dunlop - has signed up to appear in the 10-part reality series on Channel 5, which will see the hunk attempt to woo 24 gorgeous girls before eventually choosing the one he is most attracted to as his girlfriend.
Spencer, 24 - who was most recently linked to Louise Thompson - told the Daily Star newspaper: "I feel flattered to have been put forward to be this year's Bachelor.
"The concept is a great one and will certainly make for an interesting adventure.
"I believe that the time is right to look for and hopefully find , someone with whom I can share a loving and meaningful relationship."
Spencer's potential new girlfriends include a rock chick, a beauty queen, a Billie Piper lookalike and a real-life Barbie.
Channel 5 said in a statement: "The programme will be filmed in some of the most glamorous, romantic and breathtaking locations in the world.
"'The Bachelor offers an exclusive lifestyle normally only available to the likes of movie stars and the super rich."
Steve Gowans, Head of Factual Entertainment added: 'We are delighted that 'The Bachelor' is returning to Channel 5 for a second series. Spencer Matthews is the perfect bachelor and we're hoping he finds his ideal partner on the show.'
Filmed in a sun-drenched location in Southern Europe, the format for the show has been a huge hit in the US, where one of the contestants has even found a wife, although last year UK's star Gavin Henson failed to find lasting romance with Carianne Barrow.
