LOVE Island’s Faye Winter’s hunky former flame Chris Baber has signed up to new dating show Ready to Mingle.
The 27-year-old electrical engineer will be following in Faye’s footsteps as he tries to find ‘The One’.
The Newquay lad revealed that he once dated the estate agent after they slid into each others DMs.
When asked if he had any famous friends, he replied: “No, but I went on a date with Faye Winter from Love Island.
“We used to go to school together and then she followed me on Instagram.
“We went on a date, but we didn’t click.”
Chris admitted that he’s ready for love and wears his heart on his sleeve.
“I’m attracted to blondes. But I also look for the spark, that special connection and someone I can easily talk to,” he continued.
When asked if he’s had any long-term relationships, he said: “Yes, three or four serious relationships.
“I don’t really enjoy sleeping around. I always wear my heart on my sleeve and I’m so honest, but sometimes I can be too honest.
“As I’ve got older, I’ve learnt to hold things back a bit.
“I don’t do needy now. If I say, ‘Do you want to go out?’ and they don’t get back, I’ll just chill with the boys.”
HOUSE OF LOVE
ITV2’s new dating show follows Sophia Dusauzay, a single woman in her quest to find the perfect man, but there’s a major twist.
Of the 12 men hoping to win her affections, some of them are already in committed relationships and are being guided by their partners in pursuit of the prize.
Fronted by Canadian comedian Katherine Ryan the new show was filmed in a clifftop mansion in the Devon seaside town of Torquay.
Katherine, who was pregnant with second child Frederick Ryan Koostra during filming, says she believes the twist will make the show even more “entertaining and compelling” as it’s so tough to figure out who’s telling the truth.
“I am so excited to be a part of this new dating game show,” she said when first cast as the host.
“How could I say no? It’s like nothing we’ve seen before but still with all the drama and dating dilemmas we love to see, and I’ll be there front row as it all unfolds.”
The first episode of Ready to Mingle will air on ITV2 on Monday, 6 September at 9pm.
