The Vamps insist it is hard to date ''normal girls''.

The young pop stars - Connor Ball, 18, Bradley Simpson, 19, James McVey, 20, and Tristan Evans, 19 - ended their relationships because of the band and believe it's difficult to be with someone who doesn't understand the pressures of fame.

Singer Bradley said: ''I think you see a lot of celebs dating other celebs, because both sides can deal with the nature of the job. If you're in a band and you're trying to date a normal girl at university, it will be harder because of the difference in lifestyle.''

And the 'Can We Dance' star thinks it would be difficult for potential girlfriends because of the backlash they would face from fans.

He added: ''Plus they'd get too much hate.''

Bradley has a crush on 'New Girl' actress Zooey Deschanel, 34, and was thrilled to find she's following him on Twitter.

Asked about his dream women, Bradley replied: ''It's got to be Zooey Deschanel. She's amazing.''

Tristan added: ''She followed him on Twitter the other day. You should have seen him.''

Bradley added to heat magazine: ''She just follow me randomly.''
