Ulrika Jonsson refutes Janet Street Porter’s claims she only dates younger men on Loose Women

The awkward exchange happened on the ITV show on Wednesday

Janet Street-Porter grilled Ulrika Jonsson on her apparent fondness for younger men on Loose Women today (January 12).

Ulrika, 54, is taking part in the new series of Celebs Go Dating this year on E4.

The TV star appeared on Loose Women earlier today to discuss her time on the show, and whether she found love.

During her chat, Janet began to push Ulrika for details on her perfect man.

However, when Ulrika said she didn’t have a specific type, Janet made things pretty awkward.

Janet told the TV star that her former flames had tended to be a little on the younger side.

A confused Ulrika replied: “That’s not strictly true. My three ex-husbands were my age.”

“Yeah but your more recent ones,” Janet pressed.

“Recent ones, I’ve only really had dates, I guess, I’ve not had a relationship with anybody – but the dates have been a little younger, yes.”

“What’s the biggest age gap?” Janet continued.

Ulrika went on to confess that she recently stepped out on a date with a man who was 26 years old.

She revealed that the best of him being a bit younger was that he had no idea she was famous.

“They didn’t know I was Ulrika Jonsson, which was great,” she said.

“That’s the dream, to have someone just take you for who you are and now what they know about you, I found it refreshing.

“But you’ve got to have some conversation as well, right? That doesn’t always happen.”

Ulrika will be joined in the Celebs Go Dating cast alongside Ryan-Mark, Abz Love, Chloe Brockett, Nikita Jasmine, Jessika Power, Marty McKenna and Miles Nazaire.

Discussing her experiences with dating, she said: “I’ve come to the end of my dating journey but we’re still having discussions.

“It’s been… honestly, a hard slog, I’m not going to lie. It’s exhausting!”
