Carol Vorderman will not let her special friends come over

The 62-year-old TV star - who has children Katie, 32, and Cameron, 26, with ex-husband Patrick King, but was also previously married to Christopher Mather - revealed last year that she has a circle of "special friends" as opposed to looking for one person to "fulfil all [her] needs" but has now explained that she always goes to them and she often gets requests from men wanting to be in on the arrangement.

She told The Times Magazine: “They never come to my house. I’m not dumb! A lot of men ask me if they can be my special friend and I have to say, it doesn’t work like that!”

The former ‘Countdown’ host – who has previously insisted that everyone in the arrangement is single – went on to add that her fellow divorcees all “feel the same” when it comes to the idea of not seeking another full-time monogamous relationship.

She added: “My women friends who are divorced or widowed feel the same. We’d only end up having to do the caring. I’ve nothing to apologise for, so live without apology.”

Towards the end of last year, the former 'Loose Women' anchor explained that she has "ignored" the societal construct of monogamy because she believes it is "unrealistic" to expect one person to fulfil every need of another.

Speaking on 'This Morning', she said: "I'm nearly 62 now and our mothers told us that we should marry when we were 18 or 19 years of age, so we grew up with this convention that we should find one partner for life and all the good fairy tales tell you that they married and lived happily ever after.

"My view is not quite like that. If people do have a very happy and long marriage, that is wonderful. Congratulations. But the fact is that half of marriages in divorce and almost three-quarters of marriage end in divorce. So I prefer to live my life - and people should speak about it in this way - in chapters. You try to have happy chapters and I think that's what you're looking for next.

"I have ignored looking for one person. I have special friends. It's not realistic to expect one person to fulfil all your needs. The younger generation has a much freer approach to sexuality.”
