We’ve got the goss straight from the horse’s mouth, ladies and gents (no pun intended… ‘coz he’s a vet), Dr. Chris Brown is officially single and ready to ~*mingle*~.
The 40-year-old TV personality graced the cover of yesterday’s Stellar Magazine, looking v. stellar, I might add (ok, that pun was intended), where he admitted that he hasn’t found the right gal yet.
“It surprised me how much it got to me,” he said about being single at 40. “It certainly made me look at where I am in my life.
“If you’d told me at 20 I’d be unmarried and without kids, I probably would’ve been horrified. But it’s my doing. I’ve probably prioritised work more than I potentially should have over the past 10 years — to the detriment of my personal life. I love my life, but it’s not without sacrifice.”
The I’m a Celeb co-host was recently romantically linked to The Loop presenter Liv Phyland but the pair reportedly called it quits shortly after the former Bondi Vet flew to South Africa.
“Chris had only been gone for like 10 minutes before Liv decided it was all over,” a source close to the medical professional told New Idea.
“He’s absolutely devastated and heartbroken. This is the first time Chris has been dumped in a long time. He is usually the one who ends things, but he really thought Liv was the one.”
Brown went on to say that he understands that his career makes him geographically undesirable to women.
“It’s a lot to ask of a girlfriend, to put up with all the travel and the lack of face time,” he said.
It’s very possible that the blonde babe could be dropping the dime on his single status as a nod to the fact that punters are gunning for him to be Australia’s next Bachelor.
Following Brown’s appearance on Have You Been Paying Attention last year, fans started petitioning for him to be 2019’s Bachie bloke.
And according to a recent report by NW, Channel Ten are looking into setting up a 45+ years Bachelor spin-off which, if they drop the bracket slightly to 40, Chris would be the ideal candidate.
@channel10: MAKE. IT. HAPPEN.
