UNLUCKY in love Sherrie Hewson has sworn off internet dating after she was sent a graphic photo from one potential match.
The 65-year-old Wigan resident decided to sign up to a dating site but deleted her account in disgust following the incident.
I was shocked and didn’t know where to look. It’s the online dating version of a flasher but apparently it’s quite commonSherrie Hewson
She explained: “I didn’t know what it was for a minute, but then I haven’t seen one for many years. Then I went: ‘Oh my God!’
“I was shocked and didn’t know where to look. It’s the online dating version of a flasher but apparently it’s quite common. People say to me that’s what they do nowadays.”
Despite it taking her a while to click what the snap was, she insists it wasn’t worth the wait: “The picture definitely wasn’t worth sending. But I can’t get it out of my head. It’s put me off that website but I’m still looking for love.
“I would like to know what it’s like to have somebody care about you, I’ve forgotten what it’s like. And it would be so nice for it to happen this year.”
But the Benidorm actress admitted that she may have to go back online as there was no other way to meet men.
She said: “Do you know how many women there are on their own after a certain age?
“Everyone says the only way to meet somebody is on a website.
“You can’t go to a club or a discotheque as they used to call it in my day. But if I send my photo over a website, people go, ‘this isn’t really Sherrie Hewson is it? Can’t you find a man?’ You can’t win.”
She also admitted dating a younger man was not off the cards either.
Meanwhile, Sherrie Hewson is facing a backlash from Celebrity Big Brother fans after insisting recently eliminated Kristina Rihanoff was ‘the right person to go’ because she’s pregnant.
Speaking on the spin-off show Big Brother’s Bit On The Side, she said: “Yes, she was the right person to go. The problem with Kristina is that she went under the radar.
“She stood back and she didn’t join in. She didn’t have any dialogue with anybody.”
But fans took to Twitter to criticise Sherrie for her stint in the house last year, calling her boring and uninteresting.
