The scripted reality star told ITV's Daybreak that it can get somewhat awkward filming the E4 show with so many former partners.
"It can be a bit incestuous, can't it?" he said. "But the cast is ever-growing and I'm sure we'll always have room in which to expand."
The cad also played down misconceptions of the cast's real private lives outside of the show, saying: "In order to create an entertainment programme, you've got to focus on things which perhaps might be aspirational to certain people.
"We don't just roll around in Bentleys drinking champagne all day, otherwise we'd be fairly unproductive."
Now, if you caught the first series of Off Their Rockers, you'll know what it's all about - older people playing pranks. Which is actually very, very entertaining indeed. And it turns out that the stars are just as mischievous in real life!
Digital Spy caught up with Sonia Elliman, Seb Craig and Rosemary Macvie - and when their fellow Rocker Rosie Bannister wasn't texting them getting them to "say hello to Aled Jones" on Daybreak - they gave us a story time like no other we've ever had. Read on for tales of Ky Jelly, pop concerts, hand grenades, catching cheaters, people calling the cops and much more...
Once upon a time... Sonia interrupted a pop concert.
"I'll tell you what I did enjoy. We went to Newquay - at the time it was in the summer - and they have a big surfing thing." (Rosemary: "Oh, you lucky thing! »
"It's a good way of keeping fit," the 54-year-old joked. "Well I absolutely love that show, I can't say that I'm a dancer I'd say that I'm more of an armchair dancer."
Murray also spoke about her sons Andy and Jamie and their childhood games.
"We used to put cereal boxes across the kitchen floor, the lino, [get a] ping pong ball and a couple of biscuit tin lids and you can actually play ping pong table tennis on the floor… or [we'd play games] knocking balloons over the sofa," she revealed.
Meanwhile, Sharon Osbourne's son Jack has »
Kate Garraway has revealed that she will be part of ITV's new breakfast show Good Morning Britain.
Speaking to Bang Showbiz, Garraway said that she was "staying with Daybreak, and then the new show".
She added: "Weirdly, I think now I've got a more varied broadcasting life than ever before, because I've got radio, and BBC and ITV, and the Travel Channel.
''I've just started a radio show on Smooth Radio, »
Susanna Reid has opened up about her split from Dominic Cotton.
The BBC Breakfast presenter confirmed last month that she and the father to her three children had ended their long relationship.
Speaking at the Tric Awards yesterday (March 11), Reid told the audience upon receiving her Newsreader of the Year prize: "It's been a challenging couple of weeks. Thank you to everyone that voted.
"Obviously you know that things have been changing in my life but this is all down to one team, the team at BBC Breakfast, who have been utterly brilliant."
Meanwhile, Reid told The Mirror that she is still on good terms with her former partner.
She said: "I'm still talking to Dom. He is one of my best friends in the world. It has been tough but we are sorting it out. He is a great dad to the kids."

The 'frenemies' agreed at their first public reunion since Cole confirmed her return to the panel on Monday (March 10) that they felt like the ITV show was "starting again".
"There's only so much begging one can take," Cole joked to Daybreak. "It's not nice to see a grown man cry, so I finally succumbed."
Looking back at their final series together in 2010, Cowell continued: "I have great memories of that [year]. We had so much fun and I think it feels like we're starting again coming back."
Even with Susanna Reid on the morning show in Salford, breakfast TV is still a relic chasing fewer bums on sofas
Enter Susanna, exit Daybreak. The latest episode in TV's own soap opera rumbles on. Yet there is one new question to throw into the 31-year melodrama of British breakfast television. Simply: who cares? Who cares if Lorraine Kelly goes back in time to the 8.30am slot? Who cares, except possibly Susanna Reid's family and bank manager, if she's sitting on a sofa in Salford or Southbank?
There are residual financial reasons to care, of course. ITV can't countenance a Daybreak that trails 500,000 viewers behind the BBC's own cheaper version. The traditional young-mother-and-kids ad market still matters. There's also the humiliation for a commercial sector that enjoyed ratings leads in the early noughties.

Hawkins has been hired from Sky News, where she fronts the Sunrise breakfast programme alongside Eamonn Holmes. Shephard is a presenter on ITV and Sky Sports and will be a familiar face to ITV breakfast viewers as a former presenter of GMTV.
The fourth face of the new show, Sean Fletcher, is a previous news and sport presenter across the BBC, including Breakfast, and is currently on Sky Sports.
ITV said Good Morning Britain would launch »

Daybreak has been officially axed by ITV and the new series will start later this year.
Speculation about Reid being poached by ITV has been rife in the tabloids since she proved to be a popular figure on BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing.
Reid is currently on leave from BBC Breakfast, following the breakdown of her relationship with long-term partner Dominic Cotton.
Her regular Breakfast co-host Bill Turnbull expressed sadness following news of her departure from the corporation, wishing Reid the best in her new role.
Sorry to be losing @susannareid100 from the sofa. Great broadcaster, great colleague, great friend. Wishing her all the best.

Susanna Reid is set to host a revival of 'Good Morning Britain' from next week. The newsreader will replace Aled Jones and Lorraine Kelly as the face of the revamped ITV breakfast show, which is being renamed from its current moniker 'Daybreak', according to The Sun newspaper. The new name harks back to the show's 80s heyday and TV bosses are hopeful the long-running programme will be revitalised and ratings boosted by its fourth dramatic overhaul to date. Susanna, who currently helms BBC1 rival 'Breakfast', will anchor 'Good Morning Britain' from Mondays to Thursdays with the help of two new male presenters »
"I'm definitely blagging it… You're living on the edge on the skates… There's so much to think about… It either happens or it doesn't, that's the thing," Quinn said.
Of being one of the favourites to win, he continued: "I try not to think about it to be honest, the nerves are there anyway and you're anxious about going out and doing something that's out of your comfort zone anyway so there's a lot to think about…
"It sounds stupid but I live like a dog, I live in the moment so I live in what is happening now and what I need to do now and then once it's done it's in the pocket. »
Ray Quinn feels like he's ''blagging'' his way through 'Dancing on Ice'. The former 'X Factor' contestant is a hot favourite to win the all-stars series of the ITV skating competition after wowing the judges every week, however, he admits he isn't as confident on the ice as he seems. Appearing on ITV's 'Daybreak' today (25.02.14), he said: ''I'm definitely blagging it. You're living on the edge on the skates. There's so much to think about. It either happens or it doesn't, that's the thing.'' Meanwhile, Ray - who got into shape for the new series using Forza T5 fat burners, which helped »
Kate Garraway isn't sure about doing more reality TV. The 'Daybreak' presenter - who was announced as one of the new presenters on Smooth Radio yesterday (24.02.14) - is ruling out appearances on ITV diving show 'Splash!' and Channel 4's Winter Olympics-themed 'The Jump' following her stint on 'Strictly Come Dancing' in 2007. Speaking to Bang Showbiz at the launch of the new Smooth Radio in London, she said: ''I'm not sure really. When you look at some of the ones that have been on recently ... oh, 'Splash!' looks like agony, doesn't it? ''And 'The Jump' - oh my goodness, that looks »
Broadcaster reported to be courting BBC1 Breakfast presenter following a review that could result in Daybreak being axed
ITV has held talks with BBC presenter Susanna Reid in a bid to revive its fortunes in the TV breakfast wars.
The BBC1 Breakfast presenter's stock has risen since her turn on Strictly Come Dancing in the autumn and ITV is understood to want Reid to front a revamped rival early morning show.
Reid is reported to have been offered £1m by ITV to change channels, but sources said the estimates were excessive. However, she is sure to earn far more than the £250,000 she is currently believed to be paid at the BBC is she moves to ITV.
ITV has just completed a review of its ill-starred breakfast show Daybreak, which has stumbled through various incarnations and presenter line-ups since replacing GMTV three-and-a-half years ago, but still trails far behind its BBC1 rival in the ratings. »

Lorraine Kelly is leaving 'Daybreak' to focus on her own show. The ITV presenter will stay with the channel for another three years, but now host her 'Lorraine' programme five days a week - and she is ''delighted'' at the new deal. She said: ''I'm delighted to have signed up for another three years at ITV. ''I thought long and hard about staying on at both shows but have decided I really want to focus on my show. ''New-look Fridays will be filled with fashion, film news and lots of fun - I can't wait.'' Currently, Lorraine hosts her show Mondays to Thursdays, while Kate »
Celebrities are not known for their revolutionary spirit, what with barricades being everso hard to scale when one is accessorised with advertising contracts and publicity commitments, but I am particularly excited about the upcoming red carpet film awards, because I sense a revolution is imminent. Do you hear the people sing? Singing a song of angry men! It is the music of a people who will not be patronised by entertainment journalists again!
The Baftas are a week-and-a-half away and the Oscars – the royale with cheese of film awards – take place in less than a month. At the rate the revolution is currently building, I'll be disappointed if there isn't full-on bloodshed on the red carpet, with Daybreak presenters lying slain across Los Angeles, their last words a pitiful bleat of "so who are you wearing? »

The evicted housemate recently told the Daily Star that she had been driven to self-harming during her time on the Channel 5 reality show, but she has now clarified her story.
"In my depression a couple of years ago when I was at my lowest ebb, I did self-harm and I used to do that by biting my hand - ridiculous I know - but you know when you're that low," she told ITV's Daybreak.
"So what I tend to do now when I get stressed is I rub my hand until the skin gets raw."
She added: "As if I would be still in there... As if they [Big Brother] would let me, as if my family would let me and as if I would want to be in there. So you're safe, »
Blair explained: "I said to Sam, 'When you go out, can I come down and come out with you?' So I'm now out with them."
"Lee is a young man [who thinks], 'There's a lovely girl, ooh there's another lovely girl'," he commented. "I read things this morning that I can't believe happened. If I was there, it wouldn't have happened."
Blair added that he is backing Ollie Locke to win the show. »
Suzanne Shaw has spoken about her difficult decision to return to Dancing on Ice following the death of her father two years ago.
Appearing on ITV's Daybreak today (January 10), Shaw, who was joined by skating partner Matt Evers, revealed that she has been struggling without having her father to support her while she competes on the ice dancing show.
"It's been a really tough decision," said Shaw. "It's going to be quite hard for me, because he was there every single week and he loved the show.
"I know how much he really was so proud of me and was so behind me."
Shaw, who won the reality show in 2008, continued: "It is going to be tough but he's looking down on me. Everything's really positive with it and I just think, 'Come on, let's do it for Vinny!'"
The singer and actress also spoke about her 9-year-old son »
