    Gail Porter has “given up” on finding love

    The 49-year-old presenter – who has 17-year-old daughter Honey with ex-husband Dan Hipgrave – no longer feels confident about dating so has accepted the idea of growing old alone

    Speaking in Closer magazine, she said: “Basically, if anyone wants to date me, that would be great. But I think I've given up. I guess I'm just going to die with a cat.

    “I’m bald and I don't feel confident about dating. I'd love to meet someone, but I don't feel pretty and it's fine. When I lost my hair, I lost a lot of confidence - but I have a happy heart.

    "Honey's always very wonderful and positive and says, 'You're going to get a boyfriend', and I'm just like, 'Oh whatever'. "

    Gail turns 50 in March but she isn’t “scared” about reaching the milestone age because she feels much younger than her years.

    She said: “With everything that's happened in my life, I only feel 18. I'm not scared about turning 50. There are some people who think they have to act in a different way when they reach a certain age, but with me, the older I get, the younger I act. When I speak to Honey, I never feel like a grown-up.”

    Though Gail has struggled with mental health issues and lost her hair to alopecia, she never dwells on the bad parts of her life.

    She said: “I've been through a lot and when I wake up, I think, 'This is a new day', rather than worry about ageing.

    "I've lost my mum, my dad and my grandparents - it's a constant reminder that we only have one life."
