Larry, who is currently backing a campaign with dating site OurTime.co.uk, went on to discuss the modern ways of dating thanks to various apps. "I just feel that it's one of the really positive sides of the technological world," he added. "I think once you’ve been in a long term relationship and you've come out of it and are starting again, you realise just how important it is to be finding the right person." He continued: "I think as you get older you realise how much chance is involved and why it’s better to do everything you can to make the likelihood of finding the right person even more likely."
