The former golden boy of Welsh rugby stars in the finale of Channel Five’s The Bachelor tonight but stresses that regular rugby is now his priority.
Henson, 29, said: “That’s it with reality TV. It’s just about rugby for me now.
“My hunger is back and is as strong as it’s ever been.”
Henson missed out on the World Cup for a second time after he suffered a dislocated wrist in the match against England in August.
He endured unsuccessful spells at Saracens and Toulon last season, but after signing an initial eight-month contract with Cardiff Blues he hopes to fully relaunch his career.
Henson added: “The injury was crushing. It meant missing out on a World Cup again. But on reflection it would’ve been unfair for me to sneak in at the last moment.
“My long-term goals are the next Lions tour and I’ve always said how much I want to play at a World Cup – I’ll try my best to go to the next one.”
