Thompson is no stranger to dating shows, as he’s a regular panellist on Love Island: Aftersun and co-hosts the Love Island: The Morning After podcast.

Chatting exclusively with Digital Spy, the star has revealed he’s now eager to be a matchmaker himself with a brand-new reality series.

"If anyone is stupid enough to hire me as a host of something, I’d love to do a hosting role," Thompson enthused. "I’d love to host a dating show or something like that with Pete [Wicks] – that would be amazing."

"I want to be my own production company," he added. "I want to start making my own shows and doing all that kind of stuff."

Explaining why he no longer wants to work as a reality TV star himself, Thompson said: "I’ve done so many [reality shows] myself and have been a contributor so many times.

"I think you get to a certain age where everyone gets younger and you get older. I feel like I’ve done everything I wanted to do."

Reflecting on the experience, he described the opportunity as "a bucket list thing".

Inside Out 2 will be released in cinemas on June 14.
