The Dragons are going into the tie at an advantage, having won their first two matches in the 2021 Championship.

Carol has previously declared she’s happy as a ‘badly behaved singleton,’ but recently revealed she proved to be a massive hit when she signed up for celebrity dating app Raya.

The mathematics guru admitted that she was swamped with messages from both men and women when she gave it a brief try.

Carol told The Sun: ‘A mate of mine said it would be a laugh. A lot of LA people made contact, men and women funnily enough, but it’s not my scene.

‘I’m quite happy with my usual way of doing things. But life is never dull.’  

Carol previously shut down the idea of trying out a dating app, telling Closer in 2018: ‘Can you imagine if I was on Tinder? My God’

Carol’s jaunt on Raya comes after she made a cheeky admission about her love life and vowed she will never marry again in an exclusive interview with MailOnline.

The TV icon admitted she has ‘special friends’ but is not dating in a candid chat.

When asked about her love life, the stunning former Countdown presenter said: ‘I’m very happy, I have no complaints. I am not dating anyone, I have special friends. Special friends. Plural.’

And speaking about growing more confident with age, Carol said: ‘Young women beat themselves up about being perfect and there is no such thing. 

‘They compare themselves. And you get to an age where you go “just enjoy it, smile and enjoy it”. 

Carol has often spoken about her love life, saying in January that she feels ‘positively sick’ at the thought of being in another relationship. 

The star, whose former flames include pilot Graham Duff, who she split from in 2016, and PR consultant  Des Kelly, who she parted from in 2007, said she’s ‘VERY happy as a badly behaved singleton’
