The latest actor to play the Doctor in 'Doctor Who', Matt Smith, has said he is "romantic".

Speaking to the Mirror newspaper, he said he is unsure how his newfound fame will affect his love life.

Smith said "I haven't had to cross that bridge yet because I am not as publicly recognisable as I will be in a few months so I don't know exactly what it will be like."

"I hope I will be able to sort the wheat from the chaff if you meet someone at Tesco or whatever. And you never know - I met my first girlfriend at Tesco walking down the meat aisle with my dad."

The new series of Doctor Who begins tonight at 6.20pm on BBC One.
