And Brad himself, on his Instagram page, describes himself as a ‘gym goer and coffee lover’.

In a Q&A, Brad explained why he wanted to take part in the new series.

“I want to date face-to-face, I like meeting people,” he said. “I’m easy going, laid back. Who wouldn’t want to be in a nice villa in a hot country for a while?”

Asked what his colleagues would say about him, he replied: “I try and make as much money as I can by doing as little as possible. They’d probably say – not lazy, as I’m energetic – I just try to get away with doing literally nothing.”
