Romance: Ulrika Jonsson, 52, told Loose Women on Wednesday she is still dating the man who ended her five-year sex draught following the end of her sexless marriage to Brian Monet 

When asked if it is now an ongoing relationship, the star coyly replied: ‘Might be!’     

Ulrika has been honest about he lack of intimacy in her marriage and admitted she received blunt advice from her friends on the matter. 

She said: ‘But all of my friends were saying to me ‘you just need to get laid’. I just feel at this point I feel I don’t need anyone.’

Ulrika admitted she was very nervous before her first date with her mystery man and had to have a ‘couple of rum and cokes’ to make her ‘feel better’ and steady her nerves.

Honest: The TV presenter also admitted all her friends told her she needed to ‘get laid’ during her period of only having sex once in eight years when she was married 

After the first date went well, the former weather girl decided she would have sex on their second meet-up a week later, but because she hadn’t made love for so long Ulrika was worried she had forgotten how to even kiss.

She shared: ‘I was really nervous about whether I’d even remember how to even kiss.’

Explaining how she decided to just go for it in the bedroom, she said: ‘Weirdly with age comes all the insecurities about my body and ageing and all that stuff, but there also came this amazing sense of freedom. 

‘I’m 52 and I just want to do what I want to do and I don’t care what anyone thinks. He was sort of my age but a little bit younger.’

Confidence: Ulrika admitted she was very nervous before her first date with her mystery man and had to have a ‘couple of rum and cokes’ to make her ‘feel better’

Hit it off: After the first date went well, the former weather girl decided she would have sex on their second meet-up a week later 

The former Gladiators host is mother to children Cameron, 25, Bo, 20, Martha, 15,  and Malcolm, 11, and admitted she wouldn’t discourage her older children from having a one night stand.

She said: ‘I don’t discourage one night stands. We were taught as girls you should never sleep with someone on the first date, why not? 

‘It’s a natural desire. It’s a wonderful thing, if you want to go out and do it then do it.’ 

It comes after Ulrika wrote about having sex for the first time in five years following the end of her marriage to Brian in a column for The Sun.  

The former Celebrity Big Brother star candidly admitted she thought she would never have sex again only two years ago and was worried she would not remember how to have sex before she got down to the deed.

Ulrika told how her confidence had taken a major hit over the last few years, saying her self-worth was ‘lower than a tart’s knickers’. 

She wrote: ‘I had been left feeling so repulsive and rejected over the past years that the chances of having a physical experience again were slim to none. I had become unintentionally celibate.’

Ulrika said her confidence was knocked by her lack of will or desire to have sex, as well as putting on a small amount of weight and physical signs of ageing.

However, the TV star’s hopes were restored after going on a date with the mystery man who she felt a connection with.

Ulrika said she was honest with him about her recent lack of sexual experience, admitting that it felt ‘disloyal’ to be attracted to someone other than her ex husband.

The former Gladiators host revealed she was shocked when she experienced sexual arousal again, likening it to her body shutting down and someone bringing her back to life with a defibrillator.

She said: ‘I joke that it was like losing my virginity all over again — except this time I felt much more in control and considerably less scared. This was not our first date, but I knew the first time I met him that I was attracted to him.’

Ulrika and her new man got intimate on their second date, with the Swedish star describing the experience as a ‘revelation’. The presenter said she knew she had missed being intimate but had not realised how much, saying intimacy will now be intrinsic to her life.

Ulrika said she hopes her story will help other people struggling with a lack of intimacy or affection in their life find a way to reclaim it.

She said: ‘Now that I have been rejuvenated and reminded about the importance of intimacy, I feel like I never want to let it go again.’

She said: ‘I don’t discourage one night stands. We were taught as girls you should never sleep with someone on the first date, why not?’ 

Away from her relationships, Ulrika recently spoke about disliking her large breasts as they made her feel ‘vulnerable’ and ‘exposed.’

The presenter told Lorraine Kelly that her chest ballooned to a size 36L after they developed at a late age, leaving her too insecure to wear low-cut tops. 

Ulrika also told Lorraine that she’s still unhappy with her chest after it changed in size yet again due to her weight loss, after launching an Instagram tirade against her ever-changing breasts in January.

Ulrika spoke candidly about her lifelong struggle to accept her breasts, telling Lorraine she believed she was ‘fat’ due to her large chest. 

Hard: Ulrika recently admitted that she hated her large breasts as they made her feel ‘vulnerable’ and ‘exposed’

She said: ‘It was not helped by being blonde as well, blonde and big boobs… And I was Swedish all those things indicate some sort of sexual something.

‘Part of that has to do with how you are brought up. If you are not told you are beautiful or that you’re good or anything else, you naturally assume you are not.’

Speaking about developing her breasts, Ulrika added: ‘[I was] a late developer and when my breasts came they were quite big and they got in the way… I didn’t know what to do with them.

‘I was messing around with cars and things, I didn’t play with dolls and all that stuff. Then suddenly these things arrive, and then as you get older and then they arrive in the room two minutes before you do.

‘Psychologically, they made me feel fat, even though I wasn’t fat through many stages of my life.’

Ulrika also told Lorraine that when her breasts were at their biggest she would feel uncomfortable wearing low-cut tops.

She said: ‘When I was pregnant I went up to a 36I cup, or something shocking. I always felt big and it changed all the choices I made clothes wise. I would never wear low cut things.

‘I felt very vulnerable in situations like that – so exposed. The done thing nowadays young girls, not all the young girls, are having breast implants.’  

Ulrika took to Instagram to post a furious rant about her breasts, saying that despite having a reduction in 2009, they’d fluctuated in size yet again due to weight loss and the menopause.

She penned at the time: ‘From 3 weeks ago: ‘The Unhappiness Breasts Bring’ T*ts. Boobs. Knockers. Whatever you call them.

‘I’ve hated mine since before they arrived. Mainly because they were late and unexpectedly big. So much so that they would often enter a room minutes before I did and made me feel fat and cumbersome.’

Ulrika then continued: ‘Reduced them in 2009 – not myself, a professional surgeon. Asked for a ‘Kate Moss’ (ie, flat because that is the most appealing, in my view) but had to have something to fit ‘my frame’.

‘Then, years later they were inflated by the sodding Menopause.

Insecure: Ulrika added: ‘Psychologically, they made me feel fat, even though I wasn’t fat through many stages of my life’

‘And now, I’ve unintentionally, unexpectedly lost weight and went to be measured for a new bra because my paracetamols won’t fill the hammock I’m currently wearing, only to be told I’m a nightmare size because I’m tiny but need a big cup because I’ve ‘lost volume’.

(Yes, know about specialist bra companies and that’s where I’ll be turning).

‘But seriously, t*ts. You get on my t*ts. I wanted to cry in the changing rooms. With all that excess skin and stupid bra measurement. #selfpity.’

Speaking about the lengthy post, Ulrika told Lorraine: ‘So, I think part of my [online] rant was having inadvertently lost weight over the last few months, not deliberately.

‘My breasts disappeared again and I went for a bra fitting and the very sweet lady was furious I had lost so much volume and I was such a difficult size to fit. I was only a 28 around here but needed a double F cup.’

Ulrika insisted that she didn’t intend to cause an upset with her online rant, saying she completely sympathised with women who had lost their breasts due to surgery or cancer.

‘My argument was I am still allowed to hate my breast [although] I totally empathise,’ she added.

Asked whether she finally feels at peace with her breasts, Ulrika said: ‘I still hate them…. There’s a lot more skin and less substance now.’
