Speaking on Channel 4's Kathy Burke's All Women last night (Tuesday September 27), Caroline chatted about marriage and settling down.

She admitted that she considered once giving up her career because she didn't want an unnamed ex-boyfriend to break up with her.

"There has been a point where I did say the words 'I'll stop working, don't leave me' because he was gonna leave," she admitted.

It's really strange, I feel guilty for it sometimes, maybe I'm being selfish.

"And I said to myself, why am I saying that? You're sacrificing everything you do for him, because I really don't want him to go, I don't want him to leave but he left.

"Thank god I didn't give up my job."

Caroline, who also admitted that she never dreamt of the fairytale wedding, went onto say: "I've never got to that point yet and I'm scared it's gonna get too late where I've wanted to go 'Right, maybe slow down, think about having kids and maybe think about settling down' but I've never had that, that's never been wired into me.

"It's really strange, I feel guilty for it sometimes, maybe I'm being selfish.

"Being single shouldn't be seen as a sign of weakness, when you're on your own you're more powerful because you're not relying on someone else."
