British-Jamaican swimmer Michael Gunning has always been so busy training that he has never had time for a relationship. Now he has thrown himself in at the deep end by taking part in reality UK TV dating show The Bi Life, in which bisexual contestants live in a villa in Barcelona and go on dates with other people from outside the group.
I’m a swimmer and the only time a swimmer gets off is summertime so I thought, why not go on a show like this and live a little, and have fun this summer! — Michael Gunning
Others taking part include former Survival of the Fittest contestant Ryan Cleary and social influencer Matt Brindley.
