‘EastEnders’ star Dean Gaffney is on a celebrity dating app
Dean Gaffney is on celebrity dating app Raya.
The ‘EastEnders’ star has reportedly taken to the app for famous people in a bid to find love after trying his luck on the likes of Bumble and Tinder without success.
On his profile, Dean has chosen Kate Bush’s 1989 track ‘This Woman’s Work’.
Meanwhile, Dean recently admitted he is “ready to grow up”.
The actor – who has twin daughters Chloe and Charlotte, 23, from his 22-year relationship with Sarah Burge – wants to settle down and have cosy nights in with a significant other.
Asked if he’s ready to settle down, he said: “Yes. We’re all on this planet to fornicate and move forward and reproduce. I don’t want to be Peter Pan – I want to grow up.
“And on a rainy, cold Tuesday, I’d like to be on the sofa with my forever girl watching a box set.”
The 42-year-old star insisted his recent participation on ‘Celebs Go Dating’ wasn’t to look for love, but to explore the reasons why he’s always been so reluctant to commit to anyone.
He added: “I think ultimately – and I mean this in the most un-bigheaded way possible – I don’t have a problem meeting females. I don’t need two agents to find me women, but I keep making the mistake of not committing. I think there’s a reason for that, so it was about tackling that and discovering why I do certain things. I wasn’t on the show to meet a woman, per se, it was more about finding out about me.
“I’m not desperately looking for love but I’m coming to an age now where I want to meet my ride or die. I think when it comes along, it will hit me, but in the meantime, I’m happy as I am.”
