It's been 14 years since Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace told Nikki Grahame to "Know yourself, little girl" in the Big Brother house, but the 41-year-old is so less iconic. And she's about to prove that in Celeb Ex in the City (MTV's COVID-friendly answer to Ex on the Beach).

Speaking to heat, Aisleyne tells all about her famous exes - who include Mike Tyson and Jack Whitehall - and divulges why she still needs help to find love...

Are you ready to date on camera?

Yes, I need help! I'm clever at business, I'm clever at money, but when it comes to my love life, I am hopeless.

The show brings your exes on screen - could Mike Tyson be making an appearance?

Ha, can you just imagine Mike Tyson and someone else flirting with me? That would be hilarious. He would be like, "I'm here to get my woman!"

What about Jack Whitehall?

I mean, I'm not going to lie to you, Jack was a good time. And he was so impressed by my mate [Black Mirror writer] Charlie Brooker - I think that's how I got hold of him.

Look! More news!

Mike and Jack are quite different...

I mean, physically, I do usually have a type. I like big, masculine guys... like Jack Whitehall! Ha! The thing is, if someone is really clever, bright, witty and funny, my knickers are wet! Sorry, that's crude, don't print that. [Soz, Aisleyne.]

Are you looking to settle down?

Yeah, 100 per cent. I've always been so independent, but now I yearn for it - I'd just love to have a partner who I could start my future with and build a home with.

Who's your dream guy?

Oh, The Rock. I'm obsessed. I once tweeted him and he called me a "badass". I was like, "my work on this plant is done."

Celeb Ex in the City airs on MTV every Tuesday at 9pm.
