The 24-year-old is a former Kilmarnock player but has been on a slew of impressive teams throughout his career!

He's also played for Plymouth, the Wolverhampton Warriors and Sutton United – the sports star has been active since 2014, meaning he began at the tender age of 17, impressive!

When quizzed on his fruitful footie career the Kent lad said: "I started playing when I was about four or five. I signed my first professional contract when I was 17. I’m 24 so it’s been quite a journey."

The reality TV star-to-be revealed what his dating life is like as he navigates his busy career.

Aaron said: "A lot of people have an assumption of me as being a typical player, but I got all of that out of my system when I was younger and now I’m a lot more laid-back when it comes to dating.

"A lot of people would assume that I go on lots of dates but I’m actually quite picky when it comes to who I date."

He went on to confess that he already had his eye on Mary Bedford and Chloe Burrows – and he's not afraid to step on toes.

The young sports star said: "I'll openly tell you I’m about to steal your girl" – well, you can't beat honesty!

Looks like Toby Aromolara and Dale Mehmet should be worried...
