Big Brother ruined my love life, says Nasty Nick



Big Brother's Nick Bateman says he can't find a woman because of his image.

The ex-public schoolboy was vilified by the nation after he was caught trying to rig the eviction nominations for the reality programme in 2000.

Since leaving the house, Bateman has earned good money playing on his evil image but his reputation has put him out of favour with the ladies.

"Before BB, I had no problem with women, but now they can't get away fast enough," he told The People magazine.

"It would be great to meet a woman who can see beyond what happened all those years ago and take time to find out who I really am."

Bateman, 35, still receives hate mail for his scheming but he maintains he was just playing the game.

"With respect to what I did I'm sorry, but I didn't murder or mug anybody," he added.
