Country star Nathan Carter has laughed off people using his picture for their profiles on dating app Tinder, and says he hopes they have some success on the romance front.
The Liverpudlian burst out laughing on Today with Maura and Dáithí on RTÉ One on Thursday when Dáithí Ó Sé asked him if he had found anyone on his recent trip to Nashville using his picture for their Tinder account.
"I was asked by a few people recently when did I join Tinder under a different name!" explained Carter, who recently told RTÉ Entertainment that he was too busy to settle down.
"I says, 'I haven't'. And they said, 'Well your face is under three or four profiles under different names!
"I said, 'Well, fair play to the lads. If they want to use my face... If it does them any good... If they get lucky, fair play!'"
When Maura Derrane put it to him that a lot of dates would be unhappy if "the non-Nathan Carter walked in, the singer replied: "They might be happy, you never know!"

Carter's fans will be unhappy to hear he has ruled himself out of taking part in Dancing with the Stars on RTÉ One next year.
"Unfortunately I was looking at the schedule the stars go through to do the show and it looks very hectic," he said. "I don't know if I'd have the time to fit it in, to be honest."
He is, however, "delighted" to be among the stars on Friday night's Late Late Show Country Special on RTÉ One.
"Charley Pride is flying over from the States to sing on the show," said Carter. "Of course, every country star in Ireland, from Daniel O'Donnell to Lisa McHugh to everybody, is on the bill. I'm very privileged to be on the bill as well as all these other people."
