Rugby star Gavin Henson will star in the British version of The Bachelor, according to new reports.
Charlotte Church's former flame has been cast in Channel 5's adaptation of the hit US series, which will see girls compete for his attention while living together in a villa in Southern Europe.
Viewers will watch Welshman Henson whittle down 25 girls to be left with one 'soulmate', through intimate dates and group outings filmed around the world.

The 29-year-old is no stranger to reality television, having already appeared on Strictly Come Dancing and ITV's 71 Degrees North.
Henson has expressed his excitement at being involved in the show, saying:
"I'm so excited to have been cast as The Bachelor as I really feel the time is right for me to find a girl to hopefully spend the rest of my life with.
"It can be hard in my situation to meet women and The Bachelor will give me the unique opportunity to go on some incredible dates and spend quality time getting to know amazing women from all over the UK."
The Bachelor proved extremely popular in the States, airing for 15 seasons and inspiring spin-offs The Bachelorette and The Bachelor Pad.
Gavin has two children, Ruby and Dexter, with popstar Charlotte Church. The couple ended their five-year relationship in May 2010.
