Rogan O'Connor has his eye on a new recruit in The Dreamboys.

The former Ex on the Beach star revealed that he thinks TOWIE star James 'Arg' Argent would be brilliant in the male stripping group.

"He's just got it, hasn't he? It's all about confidence and you have to own it on stage, and I think he's great," Rogan exclusively told Digital Spy.

The 27-year-old also discussed whether The Dreamboys promoted an unrealistic body image.

"It is an unrealistic body image but at the end of the day, that's why we're paid to do it," he said.

"It takes a lot of work and time to get a body like mine, without blowing my own trumpet too hard. I get up at the crack of dawn and get to the gym, come back and eat and go back to the gym. I do football or boxing in the evenings – I am literally always training.

"I diet hard, I've quit drinking even though beer is my favourite thing. It's a lot of sacrifice so I don't mind if people think my body is unrealistic because I've worked very hard for it."

The model also admitted that fans can sometimes act inappropriately toward the dancers following their on-stage show.

"You get some girls who come to signings after the show, the majority are fine, but you get some who are like, 'Take your trousers off then'," he said.

"It's quite inappropriate, sometimes you can just get treated like pieces of meat. But you get used to it and take it with a pinch of salt.

"Some women can be quite disappointed that we're not that sleazy."

This year, former X Factor, Dancing on Ice and I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! contestant Jake Quickenden is joining the troupe.

Rogan is appearing on tour with The Dreamboys, which will see the group embark on more than 140 dates nationwide. Check out for dates, tickets and more information.
