Since winning the show and becoming a household name, Hamza said that being recognised has negatively affected his confidence with women.
"It’s probably made me less confident with girls, if anything, because people know who I am," Hamza admitted.
According to Hamza, his day job as a wildlife programming presenter doesn't make the dating game any easier either due to his work commitments abroad.
"My life has been so busy. I can be away for months of the year in a remote place you can only get through to on a satellite phone, and then I come home and then a week and a half later I’m back off to somewhere in Asia and then there for three months and come back again," Hamza explained.
"It’s not sustainable. How do you have a relationship through a satellite phone? 'Are… you… alive?'"
Although his current busy schedule is getting in the way, Hamza said he would like to have a partner and a family one day – if they can put up with him that is.
"I’m not worried, and good luck to whoever she is," he quipped. "I’m such an old man now – I’m so set in my ways."
Meanwhile, the wildlife cameraman was recently announced as an ambassador for Dyslexia Scotland, saying in a statement: "I’m so pleased to become an Ambassador for Dyslexia Scotland, a charity that works hard to raise understanding of dyslexia. By lending my support in this way I can tell my own dyslexia story, something I’m passionate about sharing."
