James 'Arg' Argent wants to date a "normal girl".
The 'Only Way is Essex' star is on a mission to find love again following his split from his on/off girlfriend Lydia Bright last year but, despite him being in the public eye, he's keen to settle down with someone who isn't interested in the limelight.
Speaking to the Mirror Online, he explained: "I've never really gone for a celebrity to be honest with you, I've never really gone after girls in the industry. I wouldn't rule it out but I think nine times out of 10 I just go for normal girls. I'm not really one to get in a celebrity relationship or chase celebrities, and if the right girl comes along she comes along."
Although he's hoping the right girl will come along when the time is right, the 29-year-old wannabe singer agreed to take part in 'Celebs Go Dating, which sees him paired up with ordinary people, because he was hoping it would teach him about himself.
He said: "History suggests that I go for blondes but after doing this [show] I've realised I don't have a type. I think I just like a naturally pretty girl, a girl who's not too glamorous, someone who is funny and down-to-Earth with good banter."
As for his dream date, the reality TV star revealed he'd rather keep things low key than go for something over the top or too extravagant.
He said: "I think the ideal thing for me to do would be to go for some food, maybe do some fun activity or go to the theatre. I'm quite a down to earth person so I think my perfect date would be a take away curry and watching a movie indoors."
