She told the news outlet: "The thought of it makes me feel 16 again!"And although Linda - who beat breast cancer once only for a tumour to be found later on her hip - is not against the idea of a sex life, she admits it is not her priority.

Sadly one man she does have a soft spot for is already attached: ex Strictly judge Len Goodman.
