However, there’s a bit of a snag for anyone hoping for a date with Denise.

“I haven’t gone on it. I’m so scared! It would be my first ever [online dating]. I don’t know if it’s for me. It’s so weird.

“I downloaded it and then I felt really awkward about it and I just thought, I don’t know if I can do this.

My parents have been together forever, so that’s my benchmark.

“I know it is the modern way, but I’m also very old fashioned. Like my morals, my values, the way I approach relationships – it’s so old fashioned.

“That’s also one of the issues that I’ve probably got,” she said.
