Ulrika Jonsson has joked that she could be a virgin again by the time the coronavirus lockdown is over.
The TV star, 52, is staying at home with her children amid the pandemic and social distancing measures mean she isn’t with her new love interest.
Jonsson revealed earlier this year that she had been intimate with a man for the first time in five years, after previously saying her third marriage to Brian Monet was largely “sexless”.
According to the Mail, the star said that after “motoring along in a physical relationship with a new man” for the past few months, she was really feeling the separation.

“So you might see the confusion my brain and body is suffering,” the mother-of-four apparently wrote in her Best magazine column.
“It took a lot to get my inner sexual engine started up again only for coronavirus to take away the petrol and dump me in an isolated garage on the edge of nowhere.”
The Swedish star also said she wondered whether she would “be a virgin again by the time this is all over”.

Jonsson and Monet split in 2019, and the presenter later said they only had sex once in eight-and-a-half years.
In a heartfelt article she penned for The Sun, she recalled how she thought she “might have to just accept that [she] would never have sex ever again”.
“The reason I thought this is because I had not had sex for four and half years,” she admitted.
“And the time before that was four years prior. I was living in a sexless marriage for nearly a decade.”
