‘I do not think we need to go down the path of Celebrity MAFS. I think we just keep 2023 with essentially the same ingredients: singles looking for love, trying their best to fall in love, ‘he added.

John also revealed in the interview that he does not keep in touch with MAFS participants once filming is over, but does enjoy watching them ‘shine post-show’.
