Gavin Henson is taking to primetime TV to find a woman

Gavin Henson hopes to find a special woman on reality show The Bachelor.

Over 10 weeks, 25 women will slug it out on TV to be his new girlfriend.

‘It’s mad, exciting and really cool,’ he tells us.

Since he split with Charlotte Church 
last year, 29-year-old Gavin‘s been looking for love – with no luck.

‘I’m single and which man, given the chance to date 
25 single girls, would turn that down?’ he asks.

‘I’ve been on my own for 15 months and I’d really love to have a girlfriend.

‘This could be the perfect opportunity for me.

Gavin and Charlotte were together for five years and the rugby player has been celibate since their split in May 2010. Will he remember how to behave on a date?

‘I think it’s all come back OK,’ he grins.

‘It’ll only get to the kissing stage, 
I promise.’

The Bachelor starts on Channel 5 at 10pm on Friday 19 August.
