Anne Robinson has signed up to dating app Tinder at the age of 72 after being divorced twice, saying that sex keeps her young.

The Weakest Link presenter has revealed to The Sun that sex was keeping her youthful after she joined up to Tinder the other night on BBC show Britain's Relationship Secrets.

Anne, who has one daughter, has been married twice - first to Charlie Wilson, a newspaper editor, and second to John Penrose, a journalist, who she divorced in 2007.

She revealed to the publication that she "hoped all women my age were having sex", adding: "I hope all women my age are having sex, why wouldn't they be? It's what keeps me young.

She went on: "I don't have a partner at the moment, I've had two husbands and they're lovely. I'm a committee of one."

This comes after Anne presented a TV show called Britain's Relationship Secrets, in which she tries to find out what the secret is to a happy relationship.

The BBC said of her show: "Journeying around the UK, Anne meets couples from very different backgrounds, all of whom think they have the answer."

During the programme, Anne was shown signing up to Tinder, talking through her thoughts when faced with each option.

She was seen shunning a man whose photo showed him holding a beer, and another whose job was listed as freelance actor.

She said: "I don't think that would bring in a big income."

However, she was happy with the sound of a 60-year-old banker - and later said: "I just want a Tinder that's CEOs and upwards."

Good on you, Anne.
