It was the end of an era for Jorgie Porter when she left Hollyoaks on Thursday after 8 years in the soap. And the 28 years old actress has revealed that she’s looking for a new man to coincide with the new chapter in her life as she publicly confirmed her split from Luther Burrell.
Following the end of her 4 month romance with the England rugby team star, Jorgie told : ‘I’d love to meet a real man’s man, you know, a man who likes to get dirty, doesn’t pout, and takes less time than me in the shower.’
But the blonde beauty explained that she is making no attempts to actively find a new boyfriend, as she believes that the right man will soon cross her path. ‘I’m not happy to be single, but I’m not looking for love because I think when you fall in love, it hits you out of nowhere – POW – like a lightning bolt,’ she said.
‘Instead I’m focusing now on all of the opportunities that I’ve been given to do great work – I really feel like I’m ready to take on the world.’ Jorgie and Luther split in February, with a representative for the actress telling: ‘Jorgie and Luther are no longer dating due to their increasingly busy work schedules.’
The news came 3 weeks after Jorgie warned that she didn’t want to talk about her new beau so early in the relationship. Speaking at the National Television Awards she explained: ‘We’re having a really good time at the minute but it’s early days. I don’t want to lose my cool! I could talk about him all night.
Meanwhile, the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here semi-finalist is set to pursue a career in Hollywood after leaving Hollyoaks in emotional final scenes on Thursday. Despite rumours swirling that she would be killed off in the soap, the door has been left open for Jorgie to return in the future.
Her character Theresa McQueen left Chester to live in the sunny climes of Spain, saying a tearful farewell to her on-screen family as Goodbye by the Spice Girls played over the credits. Speaking about her decision to leave the show, Jorgie said: ‘I have loved playing Theresa McQueen and am so sad to leave Hollyoaks, but I have hugely enjoyed my exit plot.
‘When I look back, the crew and staff at Hollyoaks have had such a major part in my life from youth to young adulthood and I will miss working with everyone. ‘Being on the show has led to me working with fantastic actors and directors and making friends for life. I laughed every single day on set.’
