Strictly pro Karen Hauer has said she won't be dating any more dancers following on from her split with ex husband Kevin Clifton in 2018.

It was the second marriage for Hauer who had previously been wed to American Matthew Hauer, also a dancer.

She's now said her ideal man would be "the opposite" to her exes.

“I’m not dating any more dancers, absolutely not, no way. I married two of them already. I think I’m done in that area now, I’m moving on," the 39-year-old told The Sun on Sunday.

“My ideal man would have blond hair, blue eyes, tattoos and a good body, pretty much the opposite to my exes. You always want to go the complete opposite.

“They definitely need to work out. They need to know themselves, be nice and know what they want, because I know myself now.”

She was married to Clifton for three years before they called time on their relationship in early 2018, although they remain friends.

Dooley recently shared that she had little interest in tying the knot. The journalist's comments came as for a documentary she had spent some time with women who preferred to take traditional roles in marriage. 

On her own views on the subject the 34-year-old said: "Kev and I have been together for two years. I don’t think I want to get married."

"I think I’d be more interested in starting a family than getting married," she went on.
