Jenny McCarthy will date a short, chubby man as long as he's "really sweet".

The former Playboy pinup - who has signed up to dating website Match.com - revealed she is so desperate for a man that looks have ceased to be important and she just wants a nice guy.

She said: "I don't care if they have a big nose. I don't care if they're bald. I just want someone who's really sweet and who's a perfect reflection of who I am now.

"I want someone who makes me laugh. Someone who can communicate, someone who is open and has a big heart, who loves their family, loves their mom. That's important to me."

However, Jenny revealed there is only one man in her life right now, her nine-year-old autistic son Evan with former husband Joseph Asher.

She added to The National Enquirer: "Evan's so funny, he's the love of my life. I live for making his life the best it can be. I feel the potential of maybe getting married and having another baby is out there."
