Chaz Bono plans to use his dancing skills to find a new girlfriend.

The former 'Dancing With The Stars' contestant - who split from fiancee Jennifer Elias in December - is ready to start dating again and can't wait to use his newfound abilities on the dancefloor to impress women.

He said: "I really want to start dancing again. What a great skill: to be able to take a woman dancing ... and actually know what you're doing!"  

Chaz - who was born a woman named Chastity and began gender reassignment surgery three years ago - has not yet undergone an operation to create a penis and insists he wouldn't be upset if he never had the procedure.

Chaz told People magazine: "People focus on what's between your legs. If I never have bottom surgery [the procedure by which a penis is created], I'm fine. I feel 100 percent male as I am." 

The festive period saw the activist - whose parents are Cher and her late former husband Sonny Bono - enjoy a Christmas holiday on the ski slopes and revealed it was one of the first times he had returned to the sport since the death of his dad in 1998.

He said: "First I was a drug addict and then my dad died skiing, so that kind of turned me off a bit."
