However, he is on the lookout for the woman of his dreams and has signed up to dating apps Raya and Tinder.
Opening up about his relationships, he explained to The Sun: “I was in a relationship for nearly two years but I have always been good at over-romanticising a situation. So if I meet a girl in a pub one night, I’ll be like, ‘Boys, I’ve found the woman for me’.

“But my imagination will run riot and I’ll be like, ‘That’s given me another song’.”
