Dr Chris Brown just dropped the biggest hint that he could be Australia's next Bachelor.

Rumours that celebrity vet, Dr Chris Brown, could become the next Bachelor have been circulating since September of last year.

And his latest interview may have given us the biggest clue that something might be in the works.

Speaking exclusively to Stellar, the co-host of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here said while he’s “looking for the one,” it hasn’t happened yet.

“It surprised me how much it got to me. It certainly made me look at where I am in my life,” he said.

“If you’d told me at 20 I’d be unmarried and without kids I probably would’ve been horrified. But it’s my doing.”

Dr Chris Brown shares his thoughts about being the next Bachelor on Have You Been Paying Attention? He seems a bit resistant, but could he have since warmed up to the idea?

Dr Chris attributes his single status to his busy, travel-filled work schedule which sees him away from family and friends for months at a time.

The celebrity vet’s latest relationship with television presenter, Liv Phyland, ended when he left for South Africa to film I’m a Celeb…, as reported by New Idea at the time.

“Chris had only been gone for like 10 minutes before Liv decided it was all over,” said a source close to the vet.

“He’s absolutely devastated and heartbroken. This is the first time Chris has been dumped in a long time. He is usually the one who ends things, but he really thought Liv was the one.”

Despite this, he acknowledged he’s prioritised work potentially more than he “should have” in his 30s, and despite his animal-filled life he shares on Instagram, it hasn’t been “without sacrifice”.

“It’s a lot to ask of a girlfriend, to put up with all the travel and the lack of face time. There’s often interest in who I’m dating. I don’t want to put someone through that if it’s not going to be a thing,” he said.

“I’m certainly looking for the one. I don’t want to be this person with a history of short to medium-term relationships.”

Which leads us back to his potential new gig as Australia’s next Bachelor.

Although he was first presented, or shall we say… ambushed, with the idea while filling in for Tom Gleisner as host of Channel 10’s Have You Been Paying Attention? in September 2018, he didn’t immediately take to the idea.

Admitting he was “40, still single with no children,” comedian Celia Pacquola was the first to ask.

“Would you do The Bachelor?” she said, with the studio audience applauding and cheering at the idea.

“They must have asked you to do it,” she continued.

However the vet wasn’t so sure.

“I cannot think of anything worse than having your whole life ripped apart,” he said.

Dr Chris’ reservations aside, it was an idea social media clearly loved…

However, taking into consideration his latest interview and the fact that it’s been five months since Pacquola posed her original question, we wonder if he’s given it any more thought?
