Gary Lineker says he's "not massively into sex"

Match of the Day host still enjoys flirting, though

Gary Lineker says he is "not massively into sex".

The 58-year-old football pundit has been single since the breakdown of his marriage to Danielle Bux, 40, in 2016 and Gary admitted he does not have a very active sex life.

He told The Times Magazine: "It’s a stupid and horrible thing to say in a way, but I’m not massively into sex. I quite like flirting a little bit.

"Going on a date and then, yes, come on, let’s do it. Do we really have to do all that? So I’ve hardly had any dates.

"I’ve had the odd one. But I’m straight right from the start. I say, 'I don’t want a relationship; a nice dinner’s fine'."

His ex Danielle gave birth to daughter Romy in 2017 - and Gary said he would have had children with her, but she didn't want to force him.

I’m straight right from the start

He explained: "Obviously I would have done [had more children], but she said, 'It’s not fair on you'. Then I said, 'Well, I’d feel terrible if I stop you doing it'."

The former England star is a dad to four sons with his first wife Michelle Cockayne.

Gary and Danielle announced their divorce after their Decree Nisi was granted by a judge.

The former couple didn't use any solicitors and filed for divorce using a government website where they filled out the paperwork together, costing about £400 rather tens of thousands of pounds in legal bills.

He previously admitted he found it tough having to go through their break up in such a public way - even though they have remained close as friends.

He said: "Obviously when you know you are going through something personal that you know is going to be public, it makes it quite difficult, and it becomes a weight on your shoulders."
