Ulrika Jonsson is taking her quest for love to a new level as she joins Celebs Go Dating.
The 54-year-old hasn’t had any public relationships since she announced her split from Brian Monet, her third husband, in April 2019 after 11 years of marriage, and has made no secret of her dating escapades.
Ulrika married Brian, a US advertising executive, in 2008 and they have one child together, a son named Malcolm.
On making the leap to finding love on the telly, Ulrika said: ‘Three years ago I got divorced, I hadn’t anticipated being single at my age.
‘I’m enjoying it but I look forward to working with Anna and Paul, I’m sure they will have me back on track to finding love in no time.’
Ulrika famously made headlines after admitting that she and Brian only had sex once in eight years, and has since been open about how menopause had severely affected her self-confidence.
The presenter revealed her hopes to find love and we’ll see her journey alongside the likes of Five star Abz Love, Chloe Brockett from The Only Way Is Essex, Made in Chelsea’s Miles Nazaire and Apprentice star Ryan-Mark Parsons.
Nikita Jasmine, who was asked to leave Married at First Sight UK after displaying an ‘unacceptable’ level of aggression during filming, will also star.
The E4 show, which started in 2016, sees matchmaker Paul Carrick Brunson and life coach Anna Williamson attempt to match stars with members of the public.
But in their hunt for love, the experts will pick apart the celebrities’ dating histories and give tips on romance.
MAFS UK star Jasmine said: ‘I feel so lucky to have been given the opportunity to join the agency and have the agents help me find love. I have learned a lot about myself in recent months, but I know I still have a long way to go.
‘I want guys to understand that even though I am loud, I do have a super-soft centre and I hope the agents can help me do this!’
During the pandemic, Celebs Go Dating returned with a socially distanced spin-off, with famous singletons dating from their homes, or outdoors while following social-distancing guidelines.
Dating expert Williamson said she was ‘so excited’ to restart the dating agency.
She added: ‘We are really intrigued to see what dating looks like for the celebs now the world i’ opening back up and seeing how our dates get on.’
Brunson, the programme’s ‘love doctor’, added: ‘I can’t wait to throw the agency doors back wide open.
‘This series will be an exciting experiment to see how our celebs deal with dating now the world is returning to a more normal way of life.
‘This series line-up is very eclectic, and I can’t wait to get stuck right in with helping them find love.’
Celebs Go Dating airs on E4 in 2022.
