Lewis Bloor finds being sober the 'best'

Lewis Bloor claims being sober is the "best".

'The Only Way Is Essex' star - who recently went on a trip to Marbella, Spain, with his co-stars to kick off the new season of the ITVBe reality show - is enjoying taking a break from drinking to get his life organised.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz, the fitness fanatic said: "Being sober is the strangest but best thing I've done, the funnest times we all have together as a group is when we all go for a meal and we're able to just chat, rather than a nightclub.

"In Marbs I loved being sober because I was just sitting and chilling having chats with people while people were dancing."

The 24-year-old hunk - who previously confessed his relationship with co-star Lauren Pope failed because of their age difference - also revealed his new sensible self is now ready to settle down with someone new.

He explained: "I'm trying to take my time with looking for someone. I don't want something good, I want something great. I want someone amazing.

"There was no one out there in Marbs that caught my eye but I'm ready to find someone."

And although his romance with Lauren felt "rushed", he feels like he learnt a lot from their time together so is confident his next relationship will work out.

He confessed: "I've spent a lot of time on my own though over the years and I've really liked that and found myself.

"The two girlfriends that I had before Lauren were serious and they took time to grow and develop, with Lauren, things were a little bit rushed and that taught me a lot, the next relationship I have will hopefully be something of substance."
