However, he's found it difficult to hold on to a romance and has now explained that it's all down to him being a bit of a commitment-phobe.

"My past when it comes to dating is checkered, shall we say?" he started. "I've been single most of my life to be honest. I'm 32 and I've only really had like one serious relationship that was sort of on-and-off for about 18 months. So I've been single most of my life.

"I think everyone has experienced a bit of heartbreak before, but it's generally been the fact that I'm a bit of a commitment-phobe that has made me be single for so long.

"I haven't got loads of experience when it comes to being heartbroken, but I've got a bit of a reputation for being a heartbreaker.

"I don't think it's fair, I don't think I'm that bad. Everyone likes dating, I like dating. But unfortunately I haven't managed to hold down a relationship properly."

When asked to describe his idea of a perfect partner in both personality and looks, he gave a very specific description, despite insisting "you don't actually know what you're looking for until you find it."

Pete, who was recently credited for helping Sam Thompson through the "hardest times" after his split from Zara McDermott, said: "It's got to be someone strong, she's got to tell me when I'm wrong because I'm wrong quite a lot of the time.

"It's got to be someone outgoing, ambitious, someone who's got her own independent life, because I think it's really important for couple's to have their own independency and a life together.

"She's got to have a good sense of humour because I've got a dry sense of humour that some people don't get so I think that's really important.

"It's just about clicking with someone and sometimes you don't know why you click with someone – it could be chalk and cheese, it could be you're exactly the same. It's that fire, it's presence – that's what I'm looking for."

He added: "Physically… She looks like Eva Mendes with Margot Robbie's personality in The Wolf of Wall Street that would be great.

"That's what I imagine I would like but it would probably be a f**king nightmare in reality."
