The relationship guru - who match makes celebrities with members of the public for the dating show - would like to have the professional boxer on the next series because he'd love to change the "type of girls" he tends to go for and push him out of his comfort zone.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, he said: "I would like to get Anthony Joshua on the show. I just think the guy is a dude. He is at the top of his career. I think he's still got stuff to do but I would love to see a guy of that build and that stature and that confidence and take him out of the boxing ring and put him in the dating ring and see what he is like.

"I think he's got stories for days. When people say: 'Oh my type is.' We try and mix it up. I think he'd be best suited to someone who doesn't give a sh*t about him or anything he's doing. I think Anthony is surrounded by a lot of yes people and they live in a bubble and I think I'd like to send him on a date with someone who doesn't know who he is and most importantly doesn't care. It has to be a simple date."

Not much is known about the forthcoming series of the dating show, but Gemma Collins has already been confirmed on the line up and she can't wait to get stuck in.

The 36-year-old reality TV star said recently: "I'm not really feeling them [Nadia and Eden] at the minute. I don't know how long I'm going to stay around for.

"I don't know if I'll make it until the end of this show. I've got a lot of expectation of the love finders. They are the experts, so I'm going to leave it to them hopefully they'll find me love. And if they can't then I'll just have to move along."
