He revealed he has not yet got any dates lined up - but plans to sit down and scroll through all the requests in the next few days.

Londoner Muhammad, a consultant who also runs spirituality workshops, said: “The reaction from all over the country and the world has just been amazing.

“People have said I’m very gutsy and innovative and that I’m putting myself out there.

“Someone even got in touch from Nigeria.”

Muhammed came up with the idea in the autumn.

“A few of my mates suggested the idea to me and then one day, when I was very tired from working a lot, I decided just to do it,” he said.

“I was just like ‘do I have the time to go out and mingle?’

“I wanted to just put myself out there.”

And Muhammad revealed that thousands of singletons had got in touch - although he hadn’t arranged any dates yet.

“At least 1,000 women have messaged me through the website and thousands more have got in touch through social media,” he explained.

“I have only looked a few people’s messages properly so far.

“I am going to sit down soon and look through the lot. I haven’t got any dates lined up.”

The Londoner explained he hadn’t been in a serious relationship since before the pandemic.

“The last time I was seeing someone properly, to the stage where you would meet the parents and everything, was before the pandemic,” he revealed.

“In the second lockdown, I started looking more seriously but have had no luck so far.

“Doing something like this is just part of my personality.

“I thought what is the worst that can happen?

“Why not give it a shot?”

And Muhammad said he hoped his billboard scheme would find him a wife.

“I am not against arranged marriages and I want to be very clear about that,” he said.

“I am looking for a wife and not a relationship that won’t last.

“I am a Muslim and Muslims do not date, we marry. They go straight in. As soon as you establish compatibility with someone you go for it.”
