Mansfield's own heartbreaker Gaz Meredith was fighting off the ladies on ITV's Take Me Out on Saturday.

The 26-year-old account manager from Notts impressed all 30 ladies at first, with a full house of 'likies' from the girls.

And he held his game well with a show of acrobatic skills and martial arts, and impressed with his on-screen showdown with a burglar, who went for all the fake tan in the ladies' dressing rooms.

Mansfield lad Gaz, who has also appeared in Love Island, said on the show: "I consider myself a nice guy and I've got a lot of love to give."

He told us after his first show aired on Saturday, January 2: "Filming was very exhausting, we were up at six everyday, but ITV crew are great they do anything to take care of you, it was nice."

Some viewers may have been confused as to why the lad who lives in Mansfield described himself as 'Gaz from Nottingham'.

The trials-biker and black belt in Taekondo showed off some acrobatic skills on screen.

Gaz explains: "I've lived in both Nottingham and Mansfield, Nobody's heard of Mansfield and Nottinghamshire is far too long so they gave me the choice and I said 'well just go with Nottingham'. I'm not embarrassed of Mansfield... People don't get shot there 'duck'eh'!"

And with his incredibly array of chat up lines ("I had to brace myself for all of you gorgeous ladies here tonight") it's a mystery why he is still single...

The trials-biker is also a black belt in Taekwondo, went for fellow martial arts enthusiast Charlotte to go on a date abroad - and Gaz has already revealed the trip wasn't all rosy.

Gaz said: "I can't say too much about our date - all I can say is that there was a bit of drama, but a lot of fun."

Niceguy Gaz was called adorable for his dicky bow and braces.

"The date we went on wasn't in the best setting ever, it was a laugh though, Charlotte's a lovely girl and I enjoyed getting to know her."

But did the two end up in a showdown?

Said Gaz: "We had a brief little fight scene - it was only two kicks really."

He and Charlotte will appear in the next episode of Take Me Out, Saturday, January 9, 8pm on ITV to see how they got on at Fernando's.

Gaz had to'brace' himself for all the lovely ladies he had to choose from - initially he didn't get a single 'no-likie'.
