Gavin Henson revealed as “The Bachelor”

One of the country’s most eligible bachelors, Gavin Henson, has been revealed as the star of the UK version of the Warner Bros. hit US series The Bachelor, coming soon to Channel 5.

The Welsh international rugby star is on a quest for the women of his dreams. Produced by Ricochet (a Shed Media company), the series will see twenty five girls compete to try and win his heart. 

Expect flirting, bitching and heartfelt emotion as the contestants do whatever it takes to impress Gavin.

The programme will be filmed in some of the most glamorous, romantic and breathtaking locations in the world.

Whilst the girls share a communal villa in sun soaked Southern Europe, Gavin will live alone, but nearby, in a luxurious bachelor pad.

Gavin Henson said: “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.”

Jeff Ford, Director of Programmes, said: “We are delighted to have commissioned The Bachelor for Channel 5 and to be bringing this format to UK television  Gavin Henson is the perfect bachelor and is hoping to find his ideal partner. I’m sure the viewers will enjoy this high energy and exciting journey as we follow Gavin in his quest to find true love.”
