In November last year, Ovie revealed to MailOnline that he feared dating the wrong girl could wreck his basketball career and said even Cristiano Ronaldo‘s image would be tainted if he was ‘hanging out with the wrong people.’

Ovie, who plays for French Pro A side Le Mans Sarthe, said has to be ‘very aware’ of who he lets in otherwise he could be ‘judged’ by the actions of his partner.

In an exclusive interview, the basketball player added that he doesn’t have time for romance as he has to stay committed to the sport – and he’s been single since his split from India. 

The TV personality, said: ‘It’s tough to find time for extracurricular activities to be honest.

‘As a sportsman, that’s tiring enough and you have to be locked in and focused. You have to be very aware of who you’re letting in around you. 

‘It’s not only about having the time, it’s the people in your company, and you will be judged on whatever they do. 

‘For namesake, if Ronaldo was hanging out with people who were doing what they weren’t supposed to be doing, he’ll be judged like he was doing it. It’s being very aware. 

‘I am very serious when it comes to who I hang around with. I wouldn’t say being on Love Island has made dating any harder – it’s just different. I’ve had to become more aware in England when before I wouldn’t have thought twice.

‘It comes with the territory, it’s not something that’s a surprise for me, I signed up for this.’  

Ovie hasn’t given up on finding The One someday, admitting that when he falls in love, it’s a feeling that completely takes over.

He added: ‘When the right person comes along or someone I feel strongly about – there’s not much I can do about it.

‘Emotions and the whole thing going on sort of just sweep you up. I wouldn’t say I’m in complete control.’
