The 53-year-old chat show host has opened up about his use of the dating app, revealing he likes to "dip in and out" of it because he finds it "fun".

He shared: "I have been on Tinder, I go through phases when I dip in and out.

"It's fun looking at people on it, it's like being on a platform watching a train going by very slowly and you get to see everyone."

When asked if he was worried about strangers wanting to meet him for the wrong reasons, he told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "What's a wrong reason? Maybe, but you know, people meet somebody for a reason. And anyway, I am Graham Norton."

Last year, Graham admitted he is "petty" when it comes to finding potential lovers following his split from his ex-boyfriend, music marketing consultant Andrew Smith.

He previously said: "You have your own rules as you get older. I would prefer to live alone for the rest of my life rather than live with towels that were folded incorrectly.

"Petty is important. That's why marriages break up. Marriages don't break up because of big things.

"The older you get, the less right you have to be fussy and yet the older you get the fussier you become, so oddly when your standards should be dropping you find them getting higher. You see younger friends starting relationships and you know how that story ends. You just sit there and wait for the end."

Prior to that, Graham had a two-year relationship with Canadian software designer Trevor Patterson before they split in 2013.
