The bisexual reality star says he wants to date an older man during the summer months.

‘Made in Chelsea’ star Ollie Locke – who came out as bisexual in 2011 – is hoping to secure himself a boyfriend when the warmer weather kicks in.

Speaking to Star magazine, the reality star said he is “going gay for summer! It’s the start of a new chapter.”

The 28-year-old also described the type of man he is looking for.

When asked about his type, he replied: “Will from ‘Will & Grace’. I’d like a lawyer aged 34 to 40.”

The former Big Brother star has previously shared the difficulties of being bisexual, claiming women had little interest in dating him because they assumed he was gay.

“It’s not like that. I’ve always had girlfriends. I’ve seen two guys in my life… I’ve generally always had girlfriends.”

“I think everyone does, and everyone always has done – think I’m fully gay. But it’s not like that.”

“I’ve never slept with a guy,” Locke admitted.

“This is the first time I’ve ever said it on television, but it’s done. I’ve never slept with a guy in my life.

“I think everyone kind of assumes that I have.”

A recent study focusing on the ‘life satisfaction’ of sexual minorities discovered that bisexual people have a lower life satisfaction than most.

The study – run by the London School of Economics and the University of Melbourne – analysed two data sets of over 45,000 people – covering different ages, backgrounds and sexual orientations from the UK and Australia.

By looking at factors – such as income, employment, health, marriage, children, friendship networks and education – results of the study stated: “Lesbian, gay and bisexual persons are found to be significantly less satisfied with their lives than otherwise comparable heterosexual persons.”
