Grant Bovey has reportedly signed up to dating app Bumble.
The 56-year-old businessman - who was previously married to television presenter Anthea Turner - has a profile on the location based dating app in the hopes of finding himself a lovely lady, according to The Sun newspaper.
But any hopeful romances might be disappointed when they match with Grant, as the publication reports that his profile has him listed as 46 years of age, a whole decade younger than he actually is.
However, when asked about the age blunder by the newspaper, Grant had "no comment".
He said: "It is my private life, I have got no idea about that. No comment. I am definitely 56."
The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' star - who has three daughters from his first marriage to Della Chapman - will be looking for love after his relationship with socialite Zoe De Mallet Morgan, with whom he had a year-long affair during his marriage to Anthea, came to an end last year.
At the time of their split, it was reported that Grant ended the relationship so he could be "free" during his time in the 'Big Brother' house, where he was the first housemate to be evicted.
A source said at the time: "Grant wants to be footloose and fancy free in the house. He wants no distractions whatsoever.
"It's a ruthless move but he has a habit of making harsh decisions, both with relationships and business. Zoe is obviously deeply annoyed as she's been dumped within moments of Grant getting a sniff of the big time once again."
Despite his heated past with ex-wife Anthea, Grant previously claimed they still speak to each other every day, and she actually encouraged him to appear on the Channel 5 reality show.
He said: "She was keen [for me to go on 'CBB'] and for the record Anthea and I speak to each other every day.
"She wanted me to show the true side to me ... Anthea and I definitely didn't decide on any rules beforehand ... It's a really strange atmosphere, you meet your housemates and as the days unfold you get more comfortable with them and of course you start talking about your previous life, what you did before. And I have no problem at all talking about my time with Anthea."
