People who said they were looking for a relationship and whose profiles contained pictures of dogs were ‘more likely to settle down’, according to research published in Evolutionary Psychological Science.


Alison took the opportunity to share her horror experience on Tinder, which introduced her to blocks she wasn’t too keen on.

“Can I just say that when I went to the dating app, Tinder… basically I was swiping the wrong way! So when I liked them, I was like swiping them,” she disclosed.

A frightened Dermot put his head in her hands and asked: “Wait, you don’t like them if you go to the left?”

“So I was swiping the wrong way so I had all these people going, ‘I don’t like them!’ And they were all people I was saying, ‘Yeah they’re fine,'” Alison explained.

Dermot then asked: “Did you go on dates?” And she replied, “No, I didn’t, I just exited the app! I was like, ‘I can’t do this!’

Her confession comes days after Alison reveals she wants her to have a second child with her former fiancé.

The TV star admitted that she regrets her decision to go on contraception after the birth of her son, Aiden, and wants her to “bring out another baby”.

talking to Ok! magazine, the beloved presenter said that she had “a lot of love to give” and that she would have loved five or six children in the end.

She began: “I wish I had two bangs at the same time. As soon as I got Aidan, I went straight to contraception because the doctors encourage you.

“I wish I hadn’t listened to him and just kicked out another kid. I’m so disappointed because I always found myself with five or six kids, not one.

“I have so much love to give, I need six to share it around.”

Alison said that when she would consider adoption, she would do so with only one partner.

The 46-year-old TV star welcomed her now teenage son with her ex Noordin Bouffeed.

The pair were engaged but they never made it down the aisle, with Alison revealing how the relationship began to fall apart.

write in You’ve Got to Laugh: Stories from a Life Lived to the Full, she shared: “Over time we realized we weren’t compatible. He wanted to live in Manchester and I wanted to live in Birmingham.”

“Eventually we split. Noordine became a father every other weekend, and over time, we saw him as and when he wanted to see Aidan.”

The TV star said that they are still friends and have traveled the world with their son.

Taxi driver Nordin, she writes, married a Tunisian woman and now has three children with her.
