    Gail Porter has considered joining a dating app

    The 50-year-old television presenter thinks about signing up to Tinder from time to time but she is worried she'll encounter someone who she's heard about on the Crime channel

    She said: "When the cat’s sitting next to me, I think, 'Shall I go on a dating app?' I’ve heard of Tinder because it’s been on the Crime channel. I’m sure 99 per cent of people who are on these apps are completely fine, but I know I’m going to meet someone in that other one per cent. It’s just my luck."

    Gail was also going to join celebrity dating app Raya but eventually decided against it, as she admits she doesn't want to be in someone else's "pocket" and likes having her own space.

    She added: "I got put on a waiting list and then apparently they charge you money, so I got rid of that. I’m not paying to get laid. I’m not that desperate, I’ll just get another cat. But if I did have a relationship I’d like someone who has their own place so you don’t have to be in each other’s pockets. I’m not good at having people around me all the time, I get freaked out and very anxious. I’ve always been a bit like that. I like my space. I love a cuddle, but then it’s like, can you go away now?"

    Gail still feels as thought she's 18 and despite all her tough "ups and downs" throughout her life, she is grateful to still be "standing".

    Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she shared: "I still feel like I’m 18. I’ve lived my best life. I’ve had ups and downs but I’m still standing. I’ve been homeless, I’ve been bankrupt, I’ve lost my hair, lost my mum and dad – I’m still here. You can’t get rid of me."
