Ed Westwick says his busy career stops him from finding love.

The 'Gossip Girl' star - who has previously dated his co-stars Jessica Szohr and Leighton Meester - insists he is happy to not be in a relationship at the moment because he is prioritising his professional life over everything else.

When asked if he was looking for love by British talk show host Lorraine Kelly on her breakfast TV programme 'Lorraine', he said: "No, I'm focusing on my career actually. It takes up a lot of time and commitment."

When he isn't working, Ed - who stars in new comedy movie 'Chalet Girl' - likes to forget about acting by playing the guitar.

However, he likes to strum his instrument at unusual times of the day - something he believes upsets his neighbours.

When quizzed about his passion for music by Lorraine, he said: "I'm not in a band, I'm now just a brilliant solo artist ... I've got this fantastic guitar I bought not long ago which is a 1957 Les Paul Junior, I've got this tube amp from 1952 as well, so I annoy my neighbours in my apartment building by blaring music out at 4 o'clock in the morning."
