IAN BAILEY says he's put himself back on the market after splitting up with long-term partner Jules Thomas a few months ago.
The self-confessed murder suspect revealed that he'd been out on dates with at least two different women that he met on Facebook in the last few weeks.
"I have a lot of women contacting me via Facebook who would like to me," Bailey told the Irish Sun.
"We chat online and then if we like each other we send each other pictures. I have gone out with two on official dates. We arranged to meet for dinner and drinks, and it's all good fun.
"It's nice to get back to some sort of a normal life again after everything that has happened."
Bailey is the prime suspect in the murder of French filmmaker Sophie Toscan du Plantier, who was killed outside her home near the town of Schull, Co. Cork in December 1996.
The Manchester-born former journalist has always denied any involvement in Sophie's death, despite a significant amount of evidence suggesting otherwise.
He was arrested twice by gardaí in the months following the murder, but was never charged.
Bailey says the women he's been dating "believe my story and know I am innocent".
The 64-year-old revealed last month that he had been speaking to a Northern Irish woman who famously married the ghost of a pirate.
Ms Toscan du Plantier's unsolved murder was thrust back into the spotlight last month following the release of two documentary series about the case, on Netflix and on Sky.
Tourists have since flocked to Schull in droves to see the seaside where Sophie was killed, and also to catch a glimpse of Bailey who still lives in the area.
