Wayne Lineker has revealed what he meant by his ‘creepy’ knife comment on Celebs Go Dating: The Mansion.
The entrepreneur and brother of Gary Lineker left fans baffled on Monday night after he asked one of his potential dates ‘if she had a knife’.
During the first episode, Wayne was asked by singleton Carla if there was anyone that caught his eye at the mixer event.
To which he replied: ‘There’s only one girl I like in here babe. I mean, in that way.
‘Have you got a knife?’
‘What? A knife, why? I’m scared,’ she replied.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk about what he meant by his remark, Wayne began: ‘Basically, the girl that asked me was my type.
‘So I said: “I’ll show you (who it is) if you look in the reflection of the knife.’
The other celebs joining Wayne on his mission to find love in the mansion includes Curtis Pritchard, Chloe Ferry, DJ Tom Zanetti and Kimberly Hart-Simpson.
Wayne explained that not only did he want to go on the show to meet someone, but he also hoped people would see a different side to him.
He continued: ‘I’ve always wanted to go on a show for that reason, so that the public could see me for who I am.
‘I know I’ve got a history of dating younger girls, 25-30. The problem is my girlfriends have always remained in the same age group, I’ve just got older.
‘Anna and Paul asked me to broaden my horizon and I think on the show I think I did do that and as you’ll see, I have been trying.’
Celebs Go Dating: The Mansion airs at 9pm on E4. Episodes will be available to stream on All4
