Nick Knowles is already proving to be a heartthrob in the I’m A Celebrity jungle – with many viewers wondering why the dashing DIY SOS presenter is still single at 56.
But behind the swarthy star’s good looks, Nick has become known as something of a Lothario.
His reputation has been hard earned through a string of brief romances with glamorous young women.
But Nick has never been shy about his "commitment issues" and previously revealed his relationships have a 6 month expiration date.
"My relationships have pretty much followed a pattern," he said in 2008.
"They last six months and start off with me explaining that I work a lot, so will have commitment issues."

He continued: "The women involved agree that that is fine, then after a month I get a phone call saying, ‘This isn’t on’.
"After three months we split up, then get back together.
"After five, there’s another tussle. At six it’s all off."
Nick also previously admitted he only got into TV "because I thought I’d make loads of money and meet attractive women".
And he’s certainly done that – since become estranged from his wife Jessica Moor he’s dated Emmerdale actress Gemma Oaten, 33, and TOWIE’s Pascal Craymer, 30.

Earlier this year it was revealed that Nick pays his estranged wife £4,000 a month, amid her allegations Nick was physically and emotionally abusive to her "for years".
Jessica made a series of explosive claims on Twitter, including that Nick had physically abused her and practised "years of intimidation, emotional cruelty… and eventually isolation" against her.
She also claimed Nick had withdrawn his offer to fund their young son Eddie’s private schooling, leaving her desperate to get the situation sorted before the term begins in September.
It’s been counter-claimed that Nick is paying Jessica in the region of £48,000 a year, but she has been asking for a further £24,000 annually for Eddie’s education, the Sun reported.

"Nick is distraught that Jessica has made these claims. She already gets £4,000 a month from him and he’s funded her life for years," an insider tells the paper.
Nick is one of the BBC’s top earners, raking in between £300,000 and £350,000 in 2016-17 for his programme DIY SOS.
And friends claim he’s been funding Jessica for years, but doesn’t want to pay her the additional fees, instead preferring to pay them directly to his son’s future school.
It came after a spokesman for Nick, 55, said Jessica’s allegations were not true, with a pal calling them "horrendous" and adding that they had "floored" the star.
