Ulrika Jonsson reckons she's enjoying sex more now at the age of 53 than she did in her 30s.

In February, the mother-of-four shared she had had sex for the first time in five years after splitting with third husband Brian Monet in 2019 due to a "lack of intimacy".

Writing in her column for Best magazine, she shared: "In my 50s my approach to sex has changed so considerably I have to say I’m enjoying sex now, whenever I can access it, just as much as in my 30s if not more.

"I may not feel as confident with my body as I did when I was younger but there is a real feeling of just wanting to feel that passion again and keeping holding on to that feeling for as long as possible."

She went on: "I now have more years behind me than I do in front of me and I want to make sure I really squeeze in any bits of special loving I can. So many of us hit menopause and we kind of give up on being sexual creatures because we think that’s what mother nature intended by giving us hot flushes extra weight memory loss and anxiety but it’s not."

The Celebrity Big Brother winner said earlier this year she "could be a virgin again" by the time lockdown ends after being forced to separate from someone she had been dating due to the coronavirus.
