Ulrika Jonsson has confessed that she had no idea what she was talking about during her time as a weather reporter.
The 54-year-old presented the weather news on Good Morning Britain in 1989 but admitted she had no idea when it came to weather.
Appearing on Celebs Go Dating on E4 where Ulrika hopes to find love, she got very candid about her former job.
Receptionist Tom Read Wilson asked Ulrika, “So what do you need to know about weather?”
To which, she replied, “The weather presenters you have on the BBC and ITV are trained meteorologists but I was a meteorologist so I didn’t really understand what I was saying!”
Narrator Rob Beckett then joked, “What happens next? Gladiators weren’t real gladiators!”
In January last year, she returned to Good Morning Britain to once again host the weather, giving viewers a blast from the past.
Viewers were angry after the star struggled to tell his north from his south.
She chatted with Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid about her last stint on breakfast TV.
“Probably the last time was 31 years ago, I may have been once before.
“I think I didn’t know what to expect when I started, I was 21 and you were told to talk about your personal life as much as possible because you gave a part of yourself.
“Today people understand better what this means and what the consequences are.”
The unlucky-in-love TV star said she joined the Celebrity Dating Agency to meet a man who would treat her like a “normal person”.
She told BANG Showbiz, “”At some point it would be nice to have someone in my life.
“But when you’re dating someone, it’s a weird thing when they know more about you than you know about yourself and they talk to you about you.
“There’s an imbalance there and you basically want to find someone who’s not in tune with who you are, who just treats you like a normal person so you’re on an equal footing.”

She admitted that while she didn’t like the idea of dating apps, she understood it was “the modern way”.
“Dating apps aren’t an organic way to meet people at all, but they are the modern way.
“I don’t date, so unless you’re showing off, it’s hard to meet people.
“You meet people when you go to work or whatever, I don’t go to an office five days a week. I don’t come into contact with different people.

“So it’s definitely a numbers game. I think you have to learn how to sort the wheat from the chaff.”
She has been on several dates since her marriage to Brian Money ended after 11 years.
She said she struggled with a lack of intimacy in her marriage, adding that despite looking into the issues she “never got any answers”.
