Jonsson appeared on breakfast show GMB today and was thrown in at the deep end by host Piers Morgan when he asked her to present the weather forecast at the end of the show.

But the idea of looking at a picture of someone and going, ‘Yeah, I could probably...’”

Jonssson added: “Not through the app but I have been on a couple of dates yes.”
