Who do you have your eye on in the mansion? I’m definitely keeping an eye on Jake. He’s 100% the type of boy I would prefer at home. It’s too good a match not to just try. Liam is definitely a dark horse to me, he’s like James Bond when you look at him, absolutely gorgeous. So he could very close be second.

Surname: Aaron Simpson
What’s it like going out as a footballer? Does it make things easier or does it get in the way? A lot of people think of me as a typical gamer, but I got all of that out of my system when I was younger and now I’m a lot more relaxed when it comes to dating. A lot of people would assume I date a lot, but I’m actually pretty picky when it comes to who I date. Sometimes it can be difficult to know if someone is real or not. My mother really protects me. Mom’s consent is of course always required.
