Anne Robinson, 72, has joined dating app Tinder in a search for a new man, and admits sex is what keeps her "young"

Anne Robinson has joined dating app Tinder.

The 72-year-old TV presenter is single and looking for love on the location-based application - in which users can find potential partners by swiping right on a phone screen to signal approval of a man or woman - and insists having sex is what keeps her "young".

She told The Sun newspaper: "I hope all women my age are having sex, why wouldn't they be? It's what keeps me young.

"I don't have a partner at the moment, I've had two husbands and they're lovely. I'm a committee of one."

The former 'Weakest Link' host - known for her no-nonsense contestant put-downs - revealed her use of Tinder in TV show 'Britain's Relationship Secrets', and the star insisted she will only consider potential suitors who are "CEOs and upwards".

While looking through the app on the programme, she said: "This is Gary who's a freelance actor, I don't think that would bring in a big income.

"Quick, I want to go back to the 60-year-old who's got a job in banking.

"I just want a Tinder that's CEOs and upwards."

Anne was previously married to Charles Wilson from 1968 to 1973, and she later tied the knot with John Penrose in 1980 until 2007, both of which ended in divorce.

But it won't just be some potential Tinder partners who Anne will be branding the "weakest link" soon as the quiz show is in talks to be revived.

The programme hasn't been seen on TV screens since 2012, but bosses are hoping to bring it back for a celebrity special for 'Children in Need' in November and then make it a permanent fixture in 2018.

A source recently said: "'The Weakest Link' was one of the most exciting and original quizzes in television history, and left a huge void when it came off air.

"Nothing has really replaced it so the prospect of its return is really exciting."

The show made its debut in 2000 and was licensed to over 70 countries.
