Loose Women turned a little awkward when Janet Street-Porter grilled Ulrika Jonsson on her ideal type of man, mentioning her apparent penchant for younger guys.

Ulrika, 54, is one of the famous faces taking part in the new series of Celebs Go Dating, alongside Daily Star columnist Ryan-Mark Parsons.

But when Janet quizzed Ulrika on her ideal match, after she said she didn't have a particular type, things got a little awkward.

Janet noted that the former Gladiators host's past flames had been younger, but in a frosty moment Ulrika quipped: "That's not strictly true. My three ex-husbands were my age."

But she soon admitted defeat, as she said with a cheeky smile: "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."

Ulrika explained the youngest guy she'd been on a date with was 26 – but confessed it was nice as their younger age sometimes meant they didn't know who she was.

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

The blonde beauty 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!"

Speaking of her ideal match, Ulrika said: "I don't want to be changing at this point.

"If I'm too lively, too crazy for someone, then you're not my guy.

"You need to be able to handle someone who is lively and is not prepared to go quietly into older age."

She explained: "I've never had a type, so variety has been the spice of life.

"I guess you could tick boxes and say this is what I'm looking for, or this is what I would like this person to have, but the second you see them come in you more or less know."

Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV
