Scotty T not dating Francesca Toole
Scotty T has insisted he's a single man.
The Geordie Shore star is known for his playboy behaviour, and is rarely seen heading home from a night out without an attractive woman on his arm.
He was recently romantically linked to his Ex on the Beach co-star Francesca Toole but insists that while the pair has been enjoying each other's company, they are by no means in a serious relationship.
"We're not in a relationship or anything like that. It wouldn't be fair for me to be in a relationship just because of the job I have," Scotty told the MailOnline. "Not because I'm out on the pull all the time just because I'm never at home.
"I'm not going to be going out with a girl to say to her, 'I'm going away this week but I might be back on Sunday. But then I can't make Sunday so I don't know when I'll see you. Oh, and by the way, I'm going in the Geordie Shore house for five weeks with no phone'. It'd just be hard (to be in a relationship)."
Another reason Scotty doesn't want to define his romance with Francesca is because he knows it can lead to problems in relation to his various nightclub appearances. He saw how his former Celebrity Big Brother housemates Stephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell saw their romance go down the drain after the Irish model was alleged to have hooked up with another girl while Stephanie was still in in the house, and doesn't want a similar situation to happen to him.
"As soon as you brand it as a relationship, people start looking for things," he added. "Like if I go on a public appearance and girls want a kiss and (for example) I'll kiss them on the lips and people will say, 'that's cheating'. Don't get me wrong, if I wasn't in this position I would be with her but we get on so well the way we are."
Scotty also revealed he is considering calling time on his lothario ways at some point in the near future.
"I'm conscious about settling down but I've got a couple more years left in me," he joked. "I need to do this for myself before that. I want to focus on myself, working and that."
