She previously revealed she had a boyfriend in the UK’s lockdown, but was forced to isolate separately from him back in April, due to the pandemic.
And it seems Ulrika Jonsson is looking for love once again after joining dating app Tinder at the age of 53.
The TV star has said she won’t date anyone younger than 26 and doesn’t want to receive pictures of their manhood, but she does want her sexual needs satisfied.

In an interview with The Sun, the mother-of-four said: ‘I have many confessions but I will stick to this: I set my age range of potential suitors at 26 to 50. My oldest child, Cameron, is 26 and it would feel a bit thorny to throw my nets out to younger fish.
‘I posted three personal, natural pictures and didn’t add any words to define myself or suggest what I might be looking for. Just three photos and my age: 53.’
Ulrika said men tend to ask her if she wants to receive a picture of their manhood, or ‘Sergeant Major’ as she calls it.
Pride and joy: Ulrika is a mother of four but won’t be dating anyone younger than her eldest son Cameron, who is aged 26 (second from top left)
She said: ‘I’ve had enough of my fellow females being debased, discredited and dishonoured because they have other feelings than love and period pains. We have every right to express our sexual needs. And an even greater right to have them satisfied.’
The TV star, famously said that she had sex just once in eight years when she was married to third husband, Brian Monet and felt incredibly rejected.
She joked she will be like ‘a virgin again’ after the coronavirus lockdown is lifted in the UK as she discussed how she had only started up her ‘inner sexual engine’ again.

Writing her column in BEST, she said: ‘Having spent the past two years of coming out of a somewhat “barren” marriage with little human touch, I have then spent the past five months motoring along in a physical relationship with a new man – so you might see the confusion my brain and body is suffering.
‘It took a lot to get my inner sexual engine started up again – only for coronavirus to take away the petrol and dump me in an isolated garage on the edge of nowhere.’
She previously told The Daily Mail that her sex life between her and Brian – who she met in 2006 – went from fruitful to non-existent even in the early days of their relationship.
The couple tied the knot in March 2008 and have a son together, Malcolm, 12, who was born in June 2008.
In 2014, Brian also adopted her daughter Bo, now 19, from the presenter’s relationship with German hotel boss Markus Kempen
But sadly in 2019, Ulrika announced that they had split.
Ulrika has two other children, Cameron from her marriage to John Turnbull (1990-1995) and Martha, 16, from her union with Lance Gerrard-Wright, (2003-2005).
Ulrika’s lost loves: Through the ages
1990 – John Turnbull
Ulrika’s first marriage was to cameraman John, however things ended in tears after five years when she cheated on him. She blamed her actions on her ages, as she previously said: ‘I was so young. I didn’t know myself. I did some not very nice things. I was unfaithful, which is more than not nice’.
1996 – Hunter
Shortly after her divorce, Ulrika sought comfort in the arms of Gladiator’s star James Crossley, after meeting while she acted as host on the show. After their romance, she said: ‘Well, I guess I was infatuated with James. It was a physical thing. And what a nice man he turned out to be’ – as she referenced him selling stories about their romance to the papers.
1998 – Stan Collymore
Ulrika dated former footballer Stan for a year however their relationship was marred with controversy when she was a victim of domestic abuse.
2000 – Markus Kempen
German hotel boss Markus Kempen was her next love and the father of her daughter Bo, now 18. Just days after Bo was born in November 2000, the businessman told his girlfriend that he was leaving the UK to find work abroad – Ulrika hadn’t even taken their child home from the hospital by then.
2002 – Lance Gerrard-Wright
Husband number two Lance was supposed to be the prize for the female contestants on Mr Right, a 2002 TV dating show she presented. They married in 2003. She had their daughter Martha in 2004 and they separated in 2005.
2002 – Sven-Göran Eriksson
Ulrika and the football manager stunned the sport and showbiz world when she confirmed widely-publcised reports of an affair between the duo while he was dating Nancy Dell’Olio. As a result of the affair she was given a column in The News Of The World in 2003 where she would frequently comment on his private life. She was dropped in 2007 after he left as England manager.
2007 – Brian Monet
Ulrika and Brian tied the knot in 2008 and share one son, Malcolm, 10. They began their relationship in 2006. In 2014, Brian also adopted her daughter Bo, now 18, from the presenter’s relationship with German hotel boss Markus
