Lonely Es­ther’s cheese binges

DAME Es­ther Rantzen has told of her lone­li­ness, re­veal­ing she spends soli­tary evenings binge­ing on cheese and bis­cuits with only the TV for com­pany.

The 75-year-old TV pre­sen­ter, pic­tured, whose hus­band, Des­mond Wil­cox, died 15 years ago said she longed to find a com­pan­ion through on­line dat­ing but feared she was too fa­mous for this to be prac­ti­cal. This had made her con­sider set­ting up her own dat­ing ser­vice for older peo­ple, Sil­ver Dat­ing.

Talk­ing about how she whiles away time on her own, she told The Sun­day Times: ‘I binge on cheese and bis­cuits be­cause I love them and binge on X Fac­tor, Strictly and Down­ton.’

She added: ‘There is a stigma to ad­mit­ting you are des­per­ately lonely. The worst part is not hav­ing some­one I love to share the best times with.’
