Dean Gaffney is reportedly back on the dating scene and is on app Bumble.
The EastEnders star was said to have been dumped by model Rebekah Rose-Ward earlier this year.
Dean, 41, and Rebekah, 25, were together for three years.
The actor is believed to be using a more modern way of finding love and is using Bumble to find his next romance.
A source said: ‘Dean waited a while after his split with Rebekah before putting himself back out on the dating scene.’
The source told The Sun: ‘It may be a bit of a shock for women to see someone like him on a regular dating app but it shows he’s up for finding a normal girl, rather than someone in showbiz.
‘He’s a down-to-earth guy who doesn’t take life too seriously and just wants someone to spend time with.
‘Dean knows he’s casting the net wide but he think that way there is more of a chance of meeting Mrs Right.’
Dean and Rebekah began dating shortly after his split from childhood sweetheart Sarah Burge.
He and Sarah have twin girls together, Chloe and Charlotte, both 23.
Dean and Sarah dated for 22 years before they split in 2015, admitting he cheated on her when he appeared on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2006.
At the time of their split, a source said Rebekah ‘got bored of his antics and felt like a trophy on his arm, not a girlfriend he treasured and wanted to marry.’
