The Bachelor

Spencer Matthews is looking for love

Spencer Matthews, reality star and one of the country’s most eligible bachelors, is on a quest for the woman of his dreams.

Channel 5 today announces that The Bachelor will be returning to our screens later this year.

Spencer Matthews, reality star and one of the country’s most eligible bachelors, is on a quest for the woman of his dreams.

The Bachelor is a global hit format from Warner Bros. and Next Entertainment; the UK version is produced by Ricochet (a Shed Media company). The series will see twenty four girls compete to try and win his heart.  Expect flirting, cat fighting and heartfelt emotion as the contestants do whatever it takes to impress Spencer.

Eton-educated Spencer Matthews started his professional career as a PR Manager for some of London’s top clubs, before becoming a broker in the city. He is also a trained actor and attended film school in Los Angeles. His family own the exclusive Eden Rock Hotel, St Barts. Spencer has also run several marathons and loves to skydive and snowboard.

During filming of The Bachelor, Spencer will have his pick of some of the most attractive women in the UK, from beautiful models to ambitious career women. Through a variety of group dates and intimate meetings, Spencer will decide who’s the right girl for him. He will have to whittle down the group of girls from twenty four to the chosen one and, along the way, learn exactly what it is he’s looking for in a soulmate.

Spencer Matthews said: '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.'

Emotions run high in The Bachelor - and not just on the dates. The girls will be living together and sharing the same space - and the same man! There will be real drama as they spark off each other and as real rivalries emerge. Whilst the girls share a communal villa in sun-soaked Southern Europe, Spencer will live alone, but nearby, in a luxurious bachelor pad.

The programme will be filmed in some of the most glamorous, romantic and breathtaking locations in the world. The Bachelor offers an exclusive lifestyle normally only available to the likes of movie stars and the super rich.

Steve Gowans, Head of Factual Entertainment said: 'We are delighted that The Bachelor is returning to Channel 5 for a second series.  Spencer Matthews is the perfect bachelor and we’re hoping he finds his ideal partner on the show.'

    why don't men know a good thing when they have it ? . spence should be with Caggie Dunlop , although she really likes him she knows he's a player . He then ruins that relationship , then ruins another relationship with Louis and on top of that ruins his friendship with Jamie who i would love to have as a best friend . His ego is going to be his downfall . Still going to be glued to the Bachelor as i was M.I.C. would have preffered Jamie to have been the Bachelor though .

    Caggie is better looking than all those girls. So are Millie and Louise.

    None of those girls really do it for me, there's only 1 I would go for, considering he's supposed to be the best of the best, those girls are pretty average-going by model standards- for the batchelor.

    Well this has cheered me up no end as everyone who knows MIC knows that Spencer is a player and its a joke that he is looking for true love, more like true lust until the next girl comes along. I think its so funny because Louise let Jamie down so badly and now is getting her just deserts. Hope the girls on the show treat it as fun otherwise they will get their hearts broken. Makes great telly though, bring it on....

    Spencer and louise have a mutual agreement that they are better as friends and also jamie is going to have another crack at louise. this was all on the Made In Chelsea end of season party on monday. Personally i think spencer will be great on the show he is a lush bachelor.

    Not Happy.

    I was really excited to find out Kirk Norcross was doing this, then to look on Channel 5 website and discover its Spencer Matthews? I still have not found out when it is on but I know don't know wether I'll be watching. I'm sorry if this offened anyone but there's a reason I dont watch Made In Chelsea. BECAUSE OF HIM!

    Hope the winner does the same thing as someone did on a very similar show (the one ulrika jonnson hosted and then married the prize herself) the girl who won turned him down!!! Classic!

    He can't do this surely if he is in a ( high ish?) profile relationship.

    Yeah, Spencer being with Louise in Made In Chelsea kind of ruins this show's premise. Also, when I heard it was a MIC guy, I was hoping for Jamie as he seems like a relatively normal bloke, rather than some smarmy nob.

    well either Jamie was right and Spencer was just doing it because Jamie like her or MIC is all 100% made up and everyone is acting and none of it is real. I know alot of it is for entertainment but I thought some of it was real too?

    I agree this guy is one big head t**t and god help the girl who gets him. Then again the girl will no doubts be a wanna be. BUT I bet you we'll all be glued to the tv to see what happens.

    or perhaps this programme is also fabricated? Either way, this guy is a prime twat, and that 'girlfriend' of his is either deluded or desperate. Or both.
