Celebs Go Dating's Wayne Lineker, 58, is unrecognisable in throwback from 2005 as he's slammed for only dating under 30s

CELEBS Go Dating star Wayne Lineker looks completely unrecognisable in a throwback shot from 2005.

The 58-year-old star, who has come under fire for only dating women under thirty, looked notably different as he was papped in London.

At the time, Wayne was arriving at Southwark Crown Court for the start of his trial for tax fraud.

Since then, the star is known for owning Ibiza's famous O Beach Ibiza, which has a big celebrity following.

Earlier this week, the millionaire club owner admitted he has never had a girlfriend over 30 while on the E4 dating show.

It all started when Wayne was seen chatting to a gorgeous woman named Carla, and the pair seemed to be hitting it off.

However, the businessman revealed he was concerned, as she was "older than the girls he usually goes for".

Speaking to Tom Zanetti, he said: "She's 31… I've never been out with a girl above thirty in my life."

He also addressed his love life during an interview with Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning.

The 58-year-old admitted: "I am opening up. I’ve come to realise, even though there would still be a large age gap, 30-45 would be ideal."

"What’s wrong with women your own age?" Holly forthrightly asked.

To which Wayne replied: "I don’t know. I wouldn’t rule it out but everyone has their own attractions don’t they?"

The Ocean Beach Club owner also acknowledged the "tongue-in-cheek" girlfriend checklist that went viral on Instagram in September and explained the post was based on his past relationship mistakes.

"It's bordering on controversial," he said. "I tried to take some things from previous relationships.

"The comments about, 'you must be able to prepare to give up your job' or 'prepare to work on a beach', that's because my last relationship broke up because she got a new career.

"My family are very concerned about me, when I'm single I tend to get carried away and go out too much.

"I am looking for a relationship and I'm ready to settle down, believe it or not, I am ready to be no longer single. I don't need this crazy lifestyle I lead."

Wayne has been married once before and has three sons; Duane, Sean, Freddie, and a daughter Tia with his ex-wife.

The businessman then found love with fiancée Danielle Sandhu, 28, but the pair split in November 2019 after four years together.

Wayne will appear on the much-anticipated series of Celebs Go Dating tonight at 9pm on E4.

In a switch-up to the usual show, the Celebs will be living together in a £30million mansion.
