Take your pick! Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews is to star in the new series of The Bachelor
He's made a name for himself as a notorious ladies' man on E4's hit reality series Made In Chelsea, and recently hit headlines when he slept with best friend Jamie Laing's girlfriend, Louise. But if his latest venture is anything to go by, Spencer Matthews is still looking for his ideal mate.
The 24-year-old has signed up for the next series of Channel 5 show The Bachelor, to air later this year. The series wills see 24 girls battle it out to win Spencer's affections, exhausting all measures necessary to win him over.
Spencer Matthews said of his decision: 'I feel flattered to have been put forward to be this year's Bachelor.'
'The concept surrounding the show is a great one and will certainly make for an interesting adventure at this point in my life.'

'After much consideration, I truly believe that the time is right to look for, and hopefully find during the process of this series, someone with whom I can share a loving and meaningful relationship.'
It's certainly a turn up for the books, after this season of Made In Chelsea saw Spencer relinquish his long-standing passion for co-star Caggie Dunlop in favour of new girlfriend Louise Thompson- with a generous sprinkling of other conquests besides.
The Eton-educated PR playboy worked for some of London's most high-profile clubs before becoming a broker in the city.
Spencer also attended film school in Los Angeles, and is a trained actor.

His family own the exclusive Eden Rock Hotel in St Barts, and Spencer enjoys high-octane sports such as skydiving and snowboarding.
A fan of keeping fit, Spencer has also run several marathons.
Contestants will range from beautiful models to ambitious career women, and over the course of various activities, including group dates and more intimate meetings.
The girls will live in a villa together in a sun-soaked location in Southern Europe, while Spencer resides in a nearby Bachelor pad.
