Des ventures back into the dating jungle via Bumble
COMEDIAN Des Bishop is back in the singles jungle and is looking for love on online dating app Bumble.
The funnyman, who appeared on RTÉ’S Dancing With The Stars, is hoping to find his groove in the search for a perfect partner.
Des has been single since he split from his Chinese girlfriend, a lady in her 20s whom he met on a dating gameshow in China. He has said he didn’t foresee a fairytale ending for their romance.
They were together a couple of years and marriage had been discussed. He said: ‘Let’s call a spade a spade. She would’ve had to drop everything, because I could support her but she couldn’t support me. It was one of those things – we still love each other, but with travel and visas and everything it just became very difficult.’
Meanwhile another of his ex girlfriends, model Jenny-Lee Masterson, is expecting her first child in the next few months.
His Bumble profile, which is blue tick verified (i.e. it’s not a fake profile) shows a snap of Des doing his standup routine and labels him an actor.
His profile tells prospective girlfriends he is 6ft 3in and is a singleton in the Big Apple. ‘I am a comedian who has just moved back to the US after many years in Ireland.’ Other pictures show him looking like a handsome silver fox keen on meeting his Bumble match. Best of luck, Des, it’s a jungle out there.
