It is every single guy’s dream.

And Alan Marcon gets to make it a reality on Saturday when he struts his stuff in front of 30 single women on ITV’s dating show Take Me Out.

Alan, 32, from Pontefract, was headhunted for the show, which airs on Saturday, 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.

“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 the second contestant from Pontefract to appear in the latest series after hairdresser Nick Knight was reunited with his ex.

Pitch Battle continues.
