Graham Norton has said he doesn’t use the app Grindr because ‘I work for the BBC.’
He also explained that he avoids the app ‘because of what is is.’
The TV star furthermore added that he used to use Tinder because it is ‘socially acceptable’ – but not anymore.
‘No, I couldn’t do Grindr, because you know, of what it is,’ he said. ‘And I work for the BBC. And I felt Tinder was socially acceptable. I could do Tinder. But no more.’
The BBC is the British Broadcasting Corporation, a public service broadcaster funded by the licence fee paid by UK households.
‘I would prefer to live alone’
The host of the Graham Norton Show, who is discussed his single status in the past, also explained why he prefers to live solo:
‘I would prefer to live alone for the rest of my life rather than live with towels folded incorrectly,’ he said. ‘Petty is important. That’s why marriages break up. Marriages don’t break up because of big things.’
He furthermore added: ‘People co-habit because they have to, because it makes economic sense, I don’t think anybody wants to live with anybody. It’s like the toilet paper is hung the wrong way around, it’s kind of the bread doesn’t go there, and also my problem is of course, I’m old, so the longer you leave it, the worse this gets.’
A representative for Graham has been approached by Gay Star News.
