The Weakest Link's Anne Robinson has now revealed that she is in a relationship with Queen Camilla's ex-husband Andrew Parker Bowles.

Rumours had been doing the rounds for a while and it was suggested the 79 year old TV host was dating Andrew - but now Anna has confirmed herself that she's romantically linked to the 84 year old retired cavalry officer.

In her typical to-the-point style, Anna told Saga magazine: "Yes. Full stop. Mind your own business."

She was then announced as the magazine's new agony aunt, a role that will begin in June.

Anne also spoke about what it was like to return to the dating scene after being single for more than a decade, following her split from husband John Penrose. She explained: "I'd been out of the game for so long. And also I don't drink. If you don't drink, you're not as reckless are you?

"I'm a great believer in surprising yourself by taking risks. Personally and professionally. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. If the worst that can happen is you get some egg on your face, that's not terrible is it?."

It was reported last year that the former Watchdog presenter was quietly dating Andrew for over a year, with Andrew’s ex-wife Camilla believed to be supportive of the blossoming romance between the pair

A mutual friend told the Sun: "They have judiciously avoided being photographed together as they both wanted to keep this quiet for as long as possible.

According to the pal, Anne also “loves to joke she’s ‘new money’ — despite the fact she went to boarding school, her father got a double first and she holidayed for part of the summer at The Carlton in Cannes, when not working behind her mother’s stall.”

The couple were originally set up by a mutual friend, and Andrew has become a regular fixture at Anne’s own dinner parties, which she regularly hosts at her sprawling 17th-century barn in the Cotswolds.

In fact, one of the couple’s first ever dates took place at a dinner party attended by ex-Prime Minister David Cameron, with their relationship reportedly described as an “open secret” by those within their circle of close friends.

Despite their year long romance however, the couple aren’t expected to move in together anytime soon, as Anne prefers to maintain her independence, but the couple are said to be “very happy”.

The latest relationship for retired Army officer Andrew, comes 28 years on since he divorced his wife Camilla back in 1995, when the couple decided to bring to an end their 22 year marriage.

Despite the romantic spark fizzling out between the pair, both Andrew and the Queen Consort have remained good friends, with the pair frequently spotted out and about with their two grown-up children art curator Laura and restaurant critic Tom.
