    Una Healy is ready to date again but is finding it "hard"

    The Saturdays singer is looking for love at the moment but admits it is tough right now due to the coronavirus pandemic but she is still hopeful she'll find Mr Right


    She said: "I know a couple of people who have been on the apps and they’ve been messaged and told me, 'A catfish is on, pretending to be you', and it’s like, 'That is me'. There’s a danger of that. People just don’t believe you might be on there. But that’s just what everyone’s doing now, isn’t it?

    "That’s how people are meeting and chatting to each other ... It’s so hard. There’s no dating to be done right now. It’s the worst time to be single.

    "Going on an app, I tried that a few months ago and I just found it really pointless because you can’t meet people. You need to meet someone."

    The 39-year-old singer thinks it is a "bit of a waste of time" dating in a pandemic.

    She added: "A lot of this back-and-forth of messages, or even a video call, it’s not the same. You need to meet that person face to face to know how you feel. So it’s a bit of a waste of time. By summer I’ll be able to get out again and that will be nice, because after a few messages, exchanges and calls, you need to meet up and have a coffee or walk or something. Otherwise you build them up in your head to be someone they’re not when you meet them."

    Una split from Ben Foden in 2018 and she has now had the time to "heal" from the end of their romance, after he cheated on her.

    Speaking to The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column, she shared: "It'll be three years this summer since we split, so I have had the time to heal from all of that. The past year for everybody has been getting used to a new normal, but for me, the year before that was getting used to my new normal.

    "I've had quite a bit of time to recover from it all. It was traumatic, the whole thing, it really was. But I am actually very happy right now."
