Tyger Drew-Honey has opened up about his 2016 appearance on Celebs Go Dating, admitting that he didn’t enjoy the experience at all.

The actor, 25, who is the son of porn actors Ben Dover and Linzi Drew, revealed that the show coincided with a bad time in his life.

He revealed to Metro newspaper: ‘I didn’t enjoy that show at all. I was struggling with a few things in my life at that time and it was possibly the worst thing I could have done. 

‘I had such bad anxiety about how I was going to come across. I hated every minute of it and, yeah, my chat-up lines were kind of s**t,’ though he added: ‘I have a girlfriend now who I love very much.’

Tyger had left viewers open-mouthed after oversharing on dates on the show, including revealing far too much about watching porn to a girl he had just met. 

He told his date over dinner: ‘A lot of porn is aimed at men in the way it’s shot and produced.

‘But I find that the one second out of 30 that they go to the guy’s face instead of the girl’s, that just happens to be the moment I come.

‘Sometimes the moment you ejaculate is the moment it cuts back to the ugly guy’s face. It’s like “Why couldn’t I have come when I was looking at the woman’s t**s?”’

Viewers were also surprised to learn about his family’s famous past in the adult entertainment industry, after only knowing him as Jake Brockman in Outnumbered. 

Tyger has since been dating girlfriend Frankie Little who he met on the show, but the pair keep their relationship out of the spotlight as much as possible.
