‘And my one golden rule for maintaining intimacy in a relationship is: don’t have a TV in your bedroom.’

Jenny also got candid about getting intimate, saying her sex life is better than ever in middle age.

She said: ‘Sex in your fifties gets better and better. Let’s face it, when you know someone so well and you’ve been through so many journeys, it’s just the best way to relax and enjoy each other.’

Martin proposed to Jenny on New Year’s Eve in 2014 but the star said the couple now have no plans to get married and she thinks they’ll remain ‘permanantly engaged’.

It comes after Jenny revealed that she left Loose Women because she was ‘intimidated’ by her fellow panellists and disliked like the ‘energy behind the scenes.’ 

She officially left the ITV daytime show back in 2005, but has appeared as a guest a few times since. 

17 years since she last appeared as a panellist on the show, the TV presenter jokingly described the energy on set as ‘fake’ while explaining her reasons for leaving.

Jenny told The Sun : ‘I sacked it off. I didn’t like the energy behind the scenes. I always felt a bit intimidated of the other women.’

She was then overheard describing the energy as ‘fake’ before adding: ‘No, I’m joking. Maybe I’m just a bit sensitive?’

Back in September 2021, former panelist Saira Khan revealed that she ‘just hard to tolerate’ some of her Loose Women co-stars, and claimed the chat show ‘became toxic.’
