She added further: "And if I connect with somebody and they happen to be, say, in their 40s, I wouldn't mind that. I'm only in my 30s."

Meanwhile, the multi-talented star admitted that while she's happy being single, on the show she'd certainly be open to finding romance.

She told the paper: "I'm pretty happy that I'm not in a relationship right now, because I wouldn't know how to balance a relationship with all the work involved. It's intense. But I wouldn't say no to love on the show. My eyes are always open."

Lady Leshurr, who is best known for her Queen's Speech freestyle raps, added of her co-stars: "Joe Warren-Plant is a young one, but such a cutie. He's definitely going to win the hearts of so many young girls around the country. But I've watched Denise Van Outen as I was growing up and I've always thought she was beautiful."
