Des ven­tures back into the dat­ing jun­gle via Bum­ble

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - NEWS -

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.
