” I’m not very successful with girls. I’m too busy making a twat of myself. I’m one of them, idiots. I want to be more like, who do I want to be like? Iwan [Rheon, off Misfits] is quite sexy. He’s handsome, and girls like him a lot. I don’t know what it is. He’s just cool. I’m not very cool. I’m a bit of a tit. As a result, girls just tend to go “I’d rather not involve myself with him.” Girls don’t want to sleep with people who are terracotta either. Do you know what I mean?”
