Duncan James, 41, made a cheeky x-rated quip to his date during Celebrity First Dates Hotel tonight.
The Blue star was paired with hunky Portuguese Joao in the episode, which ran as part of Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer campaign.
Their date began with a surprise – as the pair already knew each other.
The couple were enjoying some battered fish balls on their dinner date, when Duncan almost made Joao choke with his saucy joke.
Joao noted that he wasn’t usually a fish fan, and Duncan replied: “I’m sure you’ve had some balls in your mouth before!”.
When they had recovered from the giggles, Duncan opened up to his date about his troubled relationship with his father.
Joao predicted celebrity Duncan would have “loads of guys on the go” but enjoyed getting to know the real him on the date.
Dancing on Ice star Duncan revealed Joao was one of the first men he had ever dated publicly since coming out.
Duncan first came out as bisexual in 2009 but in 2014 said that he identified as gay.
Joao confessed he would like to see Duncan again, but in a toe-curlingly awkward moment, Duncan responded that he did not feel the same.
Duncan said that if there was a spark between them, it would have happened already, as they already knew one another.
He added that he had invited Joao to his show before but he didn’t turn up – while mortified Joao replied: “I was very busy!”
“I’m 41 and I want something really special”, said Duncan.
He said if it was going to happen, “we would be together by now”.
The star also opened up about his troubled relationship with his father.
He talked about his pain when his estranged dad, who did not want anything to do with Duncan or his mother, sold a story about him to the press.
In the story, Duncan’s father even went so far as to say his son got his musical talent from him.
He also revealed he was worrying about approaching 50 and being alone. He said: “I’ve never openly gone out there in the public eye and dated a guy. I’ve always been very private.
“So this is a big, huge step for me.”
Twitter users were shocked at Duncan’s decision not to see Joao again, as they appeared to get along so well during their date.
“I thought Duncan & the other guy seemed well matched”, said one.
“I’m shocked at Duncan’s reaction” said another.
“Can’t believe Duncan wouldn’t date him” said a third.
A fourth branded him “picky”.
His date may not have been a success, but since filming the show, Duncan has found love.
He is now dating Brazilian-Belgiun model Rodrigo Reis.
He told Lorraine Kelly that his boyfriend is preparing to meet his 14-year-old daughter, who he shares with former ballet dancer Claire Grainger.
Meanwhile Ulrika Jonsson, 51, had a great time with Bristolian Paul, and the two agreed to meet again.
Twitter lusted after silver fox Paul.
“Corrr this guy on #firstdateshotel Paul is gorgeous and from Bristol too. Wonder if he wants my number” said one smitten Tweeter.
“Omg Ulrika’s date has worked really well on himself how cuuuute”, said another.
“The dates are bloody gorge….jaoa and ulrikas fella so hot!!!” said a third.
