Asked in the jungle by 'Gogglebox' star Scarlett Moffat if it's hard for her to date, Carol said: "It is because if you are a bloke they tend to be high maintenance and they like a lot of attention and I don't have the time for it so I prefer to have a few. Professional Free And Single UK is a dating site specifically for UK professionals.I think our toyboys would love the chance to chat with Carol ands he'd definitely find a lot of fun for herself." The 55-year-old former 'Countdown' mathematician has been flirting up a storm in the jungle with fellow contestant and comedian, Joel Dommett, who is 25 years younger than Carol, as they are the only single camp mates on this year's series of the ITV show.So much so, that his ex-girlfriend Natalie Noir just wants him to do "whatever he feels is right".Kate is said to be smitten with the rising star, who describes himself on social media as a "Comedian/Actor/Aspiring Instagram H*e”.Unsurprisingly, Susanna Reid’s co-host Piers Morgan had a lot to say on Kate’s new man, before the mother-of-three admitted she’s partial to a younger gentleman too. Susanna beamed: "If I was seeing a 21-year-old, I wouldn't be being quiet about it."Naturally, fans went wild for Susanna’s bombshell and flooded Twitter with excitable posts.There does however seem to have been a shift in women’s tastes in men over the last few years.
“I’m certainly not the first person to be in a relationship with a younger man, but somehow I was plucked out as a bit of a poster girl,” the actress told W magazine.Despite this stereotypical image, however, not all women are so bold a hunter.The driven, confident, and seductive cougar is an endangered species rarely seen in the wild.Today, over a third said they would consider a younger man.
This new trend has led to the UK’s first free toyboy dating website to be launched.
Shortly before heading into the jungle, Joel said: "When I was 22 I dated a 34-year-old. I think it's just nice because older ladies they're sorted. "But dating anyone that's older than you it means it's just nice cause they've got their s**t together and it's taken them a while and they know what they want.
