The 60-year-old 'Countdown' star revealed she received a large number of messages from both sexes after signing up to celebrity dating app Raya but Carol wasn't tempted.

She told The Sun newspaper: "A mate of mine said it would be a laugh. A lot of LA people made contact, men and women funnily enough, but it's not my scene.

"I'm quite happy with my usual way of doing things. But life is never dull."

Meanwhile, Carol previously said she feels "positively sick" at the thought of another romance.

The star - who split from pilot Graham Duff in 2016 - insisted she's very happy living the life of a "badly behaved singleton".

Carol said: "The thought of sharing my life with someone again makes me feel positively sick."

Carol starred on 'Countdown' between 1982 and 2008, but she's now happy to take a step back from the TV industry and focus on passion projects instead.

She explained that she's now enjoying a "ridiculously happy and absurd life".

Carol said: "I’ve had nearly four decades of working six or seven days a week and now I just want to do the bits I want to do. I have a ridiculously happy and absurd life.

"I sit on an education board in America about space with a lot of astronauts, I do a lot of things that make your heart soar. That’s the joy of it all."

Carol later took to Twitter to poke fun at herself after her interview was published in the Sunday Telegraph newspaper.

She wrote on the micro-blogging platform: "Oh.. I make myself laugh sometimes.... headline in today's @Telegraph ...."the thought of living with someone again makes me feel positively sick"... my way of saying I'm VERY happy as a badly behaved singleton [laughing emojis] (sic)"
