It is every single guy’s dream and Alan Marcon will make it a reality tonight (Saturday) when he struts his stuff in front of 30 single women on ITV’s dating show Take Me Out.

Alan, 32, of Bexhill Close, Pontefract, was headhunted for the show as they went in search of a polo player.

He said: “Their recruitment team was approaching every polo club in the country looking for a player.

“My coach asked if I’d be interested and I went for an audition in Leeds.

“I’m a bit of a fruit cake and had just split up with my girlfriend so thought why not give it a go.”

Alan, who runs his own heating company, is a member of Vale of York Polo Club in Doncaster.

He said he really enjoyed being on the show.

“Being on TV is a once in the a lifetime opportunity and I’ve definitely made a lot of new friends,” Alan said.

Alan is the second contestant from Pontefract to appear in the latest series after hairdresser Nick Knight also took part in the show.

In a bizarre twist Nick was reunited with his ex-girlfriend Looci Sohma.

But did Alan get a date?
