MATT Lucas is on the hunt for a companion to make him ‘appy.
The Little Britain funnyman has signed up to new dating app, GROWLr, described as “the complete social network for gay bears”, which I’m reliably informed is a term for larger, rugged and often hairier men.
In addition to allowing its users to list their relationship status, and send and receive private messages, the location-based app also suggests bear-appropriate bars and events.
Matt is among a long line of celebs, including Ben Affleck and Lewis Capaldi, who use dating apps to find love.
A source said: “Matt has had some very positive experiences on apps in the past.
“He’s even admitted to making a game out of getting to know as many people as possible.
“There’s a whole host of subsets in the LGBT community. In branching out from the mainstream apps, Matt is showing he wants to be an active member of the group to which he most relates.”
Matt, one of Britain’s funniest men, has been open about his adventures on Tinder and struggles to convince potential suitors it really is him looking for love.
He said: “Sometimes they go, ‘you’re not Matt Lucas’, and I don’t know what to say.
“I’ve been on dates, yeah. People have been very nice. No shenanigans, just nice, proper, old fashioned dates. If you see me on there, do say hello.”
But he said: “I didn’t really like it because that was just meeting people for sex.”
I truly hope Matt finds what he is looking for.

Styles high club
HARRY Styles is used to stopping traffic – but this time he did it by flying into the road on a zipwire.
The heart-throb singer was joined by James Corden in Los Angeles on Wednesday as they confronted bemused commuters in a stunt for the Brit presenter’s Late Late Show.
Harry belted out a selection of his new songs, including Watermelon Sugar and Kiwi, on a main road in Beverly Hills.
Apart from taking to the air, the former One Direction singer also ran between stationary cars and twerked on drivers’ bonnets.
And all the while James was running around in a golden leotard and flapping giant wings.
BTS bite bullet for army
YOU’D think being part of a huge international pop group of the moment would be your ticket out of military service.
But for South Korea’s BTS their millions in the bank and multiple awards mean nothing. They are being conscripted into the army.
Previously big names from the country, including Tottenham striker Heung-min Son, have been given a pass from service – but yesterday the Korean government said the seven-strong group could not get an exemption.
In a statement, the Culture Secretary said he wished he, “could allow exemptions for them”, but unlike classical arts or sports, it is difficult to fix the K-pop band in the, “popular culture and arts fields”. The group, who have brought in £2.7billion to the South Korean economy since forming in 2013, are expected to start 21 months of service next year. The lads will be unlikely to see active service but will be involved in back office jobs and training.
BTS previously said they would fulfil their duties without kicking up a fuss.
They explained: “As Koreans, it’s natural, and someday, when duty calls, we’ll be ready to respond and do our best.”
I’ve only got admiration for that attitude – most pop stars would be calling in their lawyers . . .
LIBERTINES frontman Carl Barat and his sister Lucie Barat have teamed up for a Netflix TV show on Mental Health issues. On Red Stripe Presents Carl said: “It’s something which everyone can relate to.”
TLC set to rock it to Mars
FIERCE Nineties girlband TLC are back with new shows in London next year – and they now hope to perform a duet with Bruno Mars.
The duo of Chilli and T-Boz – third member Lisa Lopes died in a car crash in 2002 – are in talks with the superstar to collab on a new track.
Chilli said: “We’re hoping we can collaborate with Bruno, discussions have taken place and we’re big fans.
“It would be a dream come true. We admire each other’s work. We’re all too seasoned to jump on the wrong record, though. It has to be right.”
This needs to happen.
Just’s check mate
HAILEY Bieber held court in these sky-high stiletto heels at a Calvin Klein party.
The supermodel looked ready for business in high-waist jeans and a black and white checked top.
Hailey was flying solo at the bash in Berlin, Germany, while her husband Justin held the fort at home in the US.
The newlyweds have yet to find time for their honeymoon, as Justin was said to be too busy working on new music.
But seeing as his, “20million likes and I’ll release an album before Christmas”, Instagram stunt is still nine million short of the target, I think it’s about time they dropped into a travel agent.
Meg leaves ’em as charmed forces
Bizarre has been backing H4H and the Royal British Legion by teaming up with one of music’s nicest blokes – JAMES BLUNT – in support of the charities for Christmas.
Megan even cancelled rehearsals for this weekend’s show to attend, and admits she can’t believe how well her performances have gone down so far – even winning over TV’s toughest critic Simon Cowell.

She told me: “I’ve done original songs all the way through so far but I’ve got a few other things planned so hopefully I can keep surprising people, including Simon. The dream would be making it to the finals and getting to perform a duet with somebody amazing.
“Ed Sheeran, James Arthur or Lewis Capaldi would be my dream choices but it still feels a long way off.
“I’m enjoying every second of it though and I just don’t want it to end.”
KIM Kardashian has found a replacement for the $4million engagement ring she had stolen in Paris in 2016. She said of jeweller Lorraine Schwartz’s design: “There is a replica around. A little fake that I’ll borrow from her sometimes. A really nice one.”
CHER has been pipped by Sting’s partner Trudie Styler to make a movie about Winston Churchill’s wife Clementine. The Believe singer said the life led by the Second World War leader’s wife was, “one of the great stories of all time”.
KISS did a show in Oz for great white sharks – and none turned up. Songs were played through underwater speakers as the maneaters are said to be drawn by low-frequency sounds. Event host Matt Waller said: “It was everything a Kiss concert should be.”
HARRY Potter actor Rupert Grint has admitted he nearly quit as Ron Weasley aged 16. He said: “I remember a conversation with myself about leaving. There was a sense I was missing out on a lot of things and ‘Is this what I want to do for the next five years?’
