Saira Khan has joked that she wants to sleep with a robot
Saira Khan wants her husband to buy her a sex robot.
The 'Loose Women' panellist - who gave her spouse permission to get intimate with other women after she lost her desire to get frisky in the bedroom - has joked that she's asked Steve Hyde to fork out £12,000 on a life-size doll for her to sleep with.
Taking to her Twitter account, the 47-year-old presenter said: "Thank you everyone for my birthday wishes - I'm asking Steve to buy me Gabrielle / Harmony for my birthday @loosewomen, (sic)" followed by a sticking out tongue emoji.
Her jokey tweet comes just minutes after she said she'd be willing to try having sex with a robot on the lunchtime show in order to keep her marriage alive.
She explained: "For me, don't knock it until you've tried it. Life is for living. I think you're very young and gorgeous lovely and until you get to 47 and you've been married for 15 years and then Gabrielle will be quite handy. They're very useful additions to a household. As you get older, our attitudes age us. For me, as a woman, part of being a feminist, is actually about talking about sex, enjoy it. A robot or a vibrator, I don't think it's an issue. I think it's liberation, go for it!"
But not everyone was willing to open their mind as Stacey Solomon - who is dating Joe Swash - couldn't think of anything worse as there's no skin-to-skin contact.
She said: "I feel like as if computers haven't already stole all our jobs, now they're going to steal our sex life. If that's what you're into then that's what you're into but, without sounding weird, I like to have actual sex and emotion. I don't want to be with a robot. Nothing about that appeals to me. They don't love you, who's going to cuddle you afterwards. If I brought Harmony home, he wouldn't even ask me. He wouldn't want me anymore. I'm not one for toys either, I just like human contact. Love is dead if we're all going to start having sex with robots."
