Season 2 of Vh1’s sexy Monday night girl-power drama Single Ladies is back in full swing and aiming to please fans. From back-to-back “oh-no-she-didn’t” plot lines to steamy cameos by your favorite hot chocolate (shirtless!) hunks, there’s never a dull moment. And it’s about to get even better: Sexy British import Ricky Whittle joins the cast tonight, playing a new love interest for Raquel (Denise Vasi).

He’s stacked, he’s talented and he’s ready to win you over. Whittle tells us he originally signed on to do a short plot arc on the show, but the onscreen chemistry between him and Vasi was so intense that producers insisted he stick around awhile. (Thank God!) You’ll have to wait until tonight’s episode to see Whittle in full-on wooing mode — but in the meantime, we’ve got a little taste of his goodness to satisfy your craving now. Ladies, the heat is on! Meet Ricky, your next crush.
