Calum Best has said he would love to walk down the aisle one day with an Irish woman.

The reality star (37) has spent a lot of time in Ireland over the years after appearing on several different TV shows.

He previously had a highly publicised relationship with Dublin model Georgia Salpa, who later went on to marry English businessman Joe Penna and moved to Marbella.

"I'm single. I'd love to get married to an Irish woman," he said.

Although he has enjoyed most of his TV appearances here, he described the show where he and Georgia met, Celebrity Salon, as a "car crash".

"I've done a few shows here, and some have been so much fun. I remember doing the Celebrity Bain- isteoir show years ago. It was such a good laugh," he said.

"There was another one that was a car crash, Celebrity Salon, and all due respect to whoever made it.

"I remember going 'Oh, what was I thinking?'. But it was still fun to do. It was still a good laugh.

Previously known for his bad-boy image, Calum is now less focused on doing TV work and is developing a new wellness business.

"I've just launched a new business. I've done less TV lately," he said.

"It's a daily planner - me and my business partner launched it in August.

"It's about productivity and it's about mindfulness.

"I think there's a big increase in the UK, especially of people wanting to take care of themselves better and being more mindful.

"The business has gone through the roof and I'm delighted really. I've been doing TV for 20 years nearly, and I'll happily keep it going.

"I'm just getting a bit older and want to sit more stable with solid businesses, which I'm proud of."
