The 61-year-old was praised for her “free” attitude to relationships when she appeared on Loose Women earlier this month.
And she shared that her decision to stay unattached stems from her upbringing, as her mum was a single parent in the 1960s.
She explained: “What it is, when you’re growing up as a young girl, you’re told that you should have one partner, and for the vast majority of people that suits.
“But then as we all have women friends, girlfriends if you like who are older, a lot of people who are married go, ‘I wouldn’t mind living in a separate house actually’.”
Carol has been married twice before – but says she will never walk down the aisle again and is happy to be single forever.
