The 41-year-old ' Britain's Got More Talent' host - who is currently single - is taking inspiration from Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt.

Stephen told Heat FM: "Brad is really sorting himself out - getting trim, eating healthily - and has cut out the booze.

"He's been in relationships for pretty much all of his entire adult life, so he's vowed to stay celibate for a year.

"Well, I'm going to be off the market for a year as well. I'm going to follow in Brad's footsteps.

"I'm sorry - myself and 'the Pitt' are off the market. We're out of action."

The former children's TV presenter - who has just landed the task of hosting a new-look National Lottery show - revealed earlier this year that he hasn't been on a date for four years.

He said: "That makes me sound really sad. I need a life. I need to stop working so much."

Stephen's work load is only set to get bigger as he is hosting then new National Lottery show on ITV.

He said: "The National Lottery is an iconic institution and I'm hugely excited to be part of its return to primetime Saturday night TV.

"When you think about The National Lottery you think of people winning life-changing prizes.

"But sometimes you forget that players raise around £30 million every week for Good Causes across the UK.

"I feel privileged to be bringing those lucky numbers to the nation but also being able to show players how the money they've helped raise has made a difference to communities across the UK."

Stephen is expected to reveal the important Lotto results to the nation in the show, which he said is "unbelievable".

Stephen is alsi reported to be getting his own 'Saturday Night Takeaway' spin-off series.

His 'In For A Penny' segment - in which unsuspecting members of the public are given the chance to win £1,000 for a stake of just 1p - has been commissioned by ITV bosses as its own standalone programme.
