Danny O'Donoghue has refused to buy a car.

The Script frontman, 33, doesn't want to splurge on a posh vehicle or lavish house because he's not interested in getting caught up in perks of fame.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said: ''We don't live in big houses or mansions, I don't even own a car and we're not ones for red carpets. While other people are doing that we're where we belong, in the studio.''

Meanwhile, the Irish hunk, who split from girlfriend of four years Irma Mali in 2012, has his sights set on settling down and starting a family in the future, but insists he's just enjoying being single at the moment.

He said previously: ''There's nothing I'd love more than to start a family when the time is right...

''[At the moment] I'm single and plying the field! I'm dating, I'm just having fun.''

However, Danny looks set to make one lucky lady very happy when he does finally settle down as he is a firm believer in being a gentleman.

He explained: ''I write songs, I cook dinner and I like to treat a woman nicely. I'm old school - I believe doors should be opened for a woman.''
