Calum: ‘I’m on the hunt for Mrs Best’

Soon, there won’t been any­one left to date

Heat (UK) - - This Week: We're Obsessed With.. -

He’s known for his long line of exes (in­clud­ing Lind­say Lo­han, Sarah Hard­ing and El­iz­a­beth Jag­ger), but Calum Best is out to find love once and for all – and he’s called in the pro­fes­sion­als for help. Ahead of his ap­pear­ance in the new se­ries of Celebs Go Dat­ing, Calum, 36, talks ex­clu­sively to heat about why he’s se­ri­ous about meet­ing some­one spe­cial this time.

What made you de­cide to do the show?

I thought, why not let them do the ground­work, and I’ll do the court­ing, win­ing and din­ing? It’s pos­si­ble I’ll screw up or look like an id­iot, but damn, maybe it will help peo­ple un­der­stand who I am.

Would you say you’re a pro­fes­sional dater?

Hardly. I’m ac­tu­ally sin­gle by choice – I haven’t found the per­son I re­ally want to be with.

Do you want a girl­friend?

Just be­cause I have a lothario past, doesn’t mean that I’m a man who doesn’t want to get mar­ried and have kids – of course I do. I’m do­ing this be­cause I want to le­git­i­mately see if the agency can find me some­one who ticks all the boxes.

How do you feel about your im­age as a player?

It an­noys the f**k out of me. I’ve never wanted to be the guy who drinks and shags on na­tional TV – I’ve never done that and I never will. I’ve worked my ass off to clean up my rep.

Do you think you will set­tle down?

Yes, with­out a doubt. I want a mis­sus. I want a fam­ily. I want to be a great dad. I can’t wait.

What did you think of your ex, Sarah Hard­ing, on Celeb BB?

I’ve got a lot of time for Sarah – she’s a good girl. All she wants is to do well for her­self – she’s very con­scious of what the public think of her. I hope it goes well for her af­ter the show be­cause I think she de­serves it.

CELEBS GO DAT­ING RE­TURNS ON 4 SEPTEM­BER, E4, 10PM

With Sarah Hard­ing back in 2005
