Jorgie, who played Theresa McQueen in Hollyoaks, explained that she turned to dating apps because she’s “lost her mind” over men and “literally fancies every man”.
She told new! magazine: “I’ve had a FaceTime date. It’s quite scary because you think we’re just gonna sit face to dace and say, ‘Hello, how are you?’
“It’s kind of awkward, so it’s good to do a creative activity like paint a picture together, which is what we did. It’s cool because you see how much effort they’ve put in.”
She went on: “So if they get their paints and canvas ready, you’re like, ‘Ah, he wants to impress me.'”

The I’m A Celebrity star added that she forgets she’s famous when she’s dating and relies on her friends to weed out the fame-hungry among her suitors.
Jorgie hasn’t had much luck with dating apps in the past, having previously been deleted from Tinder after daters were convinced her profile was fake.
The experience was similar to that of Hollywood star Sharon Stone, whose profile on dating app Bumble was deleted as it was thought to be fake.
Jorgie told The Sun: “I got Sharon Stoned on Tinder. No one believed it was me.
“People were messaging me going, ‘There’s a fake of you on Tinder. But don’t worry, we’ve reported it and we’ve cancelled it’.
“I was like, ‘No, it really is me’.

“I didn’t get any dates and most of the people getting in touch were a bit catfishy, which was weird.”
The soap star, who dated fellow Hollyoaks actor James Atherton from 2011 to 2014, added that while she’s happy to go on dating apps, she’s also happy being single.
She said: “I’m glad I’ve not settled down at a young age, married, got divorced and had to deal with the heartbreak.”
