Jilly Cooper, 80, has signed up to dat­ing web­site Tin­der. The erotic nov­el­ist says it’s “only for re­search pur­poses be­cause I want peo­ple to do it in my next book.

I loved it!’, she told the Daily Mail, adding: “I also tried speed dat­ing, where you have to de­cide if you like a man in four min­utes.” New Great Bri­tish Bake Off pre­sen­ter Prue Leith apol­o­gised af­ter say­ing she feared “do­ing a Chris Evans” if she fails to suc­cess­fully fol­low Mary Berry. The for­mer Top Gear front­man made a joke on his ra­dio show, and Leith emailed say­ing it was “a silly thing to say”. But Evans said she had said the right thing.
