A self confessed ladies man from Ilkeston is hoping to find love as a contestant on a brand new reality show to air on MTV tonight.

Jack Lomax, 22, of Ilkeston is one of eight single male and female contestants to join the cast of MTV’s ‘Ex on the Beach’ which follows singletons who are in search of love in the exotic Mediterranean.

However the dating show promises to be devious as the contestants past flames wash up unexpectedly.

Speaking to MTV, Jack said: “I haven’t really had a proper girlfriend but have had a lot of one night stands which is not something to be proud of.

“I dated a girl for a few weeks but ended up blocking her on Twitter and cracking on with another girl.

“I’m not your typical romantic, I don’t buy girls flowers or take girls for meals, I get them to buy me the popcorn at the cinema.”

The semi-professional footballer who also works alongside his dad and brother at a car body shop describes his ideal woman as Coronation Street Actress, Georgia May Foote.

He added: “The main thing I hope to get out of the show is to meet new people and I’m hoping there will be at least one girl who will put out.”

Episode one of the show which airs tonight will see contestants, including Geordie Shore star, Vicky Pattison, move into a luxury villa in Marbella.

MTV’s Ex on the Beach airs weekly at 10pm on Tuesdays.
