The newspaper’s website quoted a source as saying: “Dean waited a while after his split with Rebekah before putting himself back out on the dating scene.

“It may be a bit of a shock for a lot of women to see someone like him on a regular dating app but it shows he is 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 thinks that way there is more of a chance of meeting Mrs Right.”

Dean began dating Rebekah, 25, after splitting from his childhood sweetheart Sarah Burge – the mother of his two children.

According to The Sun, a source claims Rebekah was “bored of his antics” and “felt like a trophy on his arm” rather than his girlfriend.
