The TV star, who is taking part in Celebrity MasterChef, wants a partner to live with and cook for.

He said: “I feel like I could sort of like properly be with someone, ready to settle down now.

“I’ve done everything really. Dated all different girls and things like that.

“I’m ready – but I’m not looking for love. I mean, I should be, but I’m not.

“Love is going to find me, I’m sure it will.”

The former  I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here contestant and winner of The Jump has felt a change in his attitude as he has got older.

Essex said: “I went through my Insta the other day and I went half way down and saw pictures of myself and videos, from 2014/15, and I’m like, ‘wow’. It is mental.

He added: “As you get older it’s a different life.

“If I found the right person, I’d settle down.
