Graham Norton quit Tinder because of 'broken people'

Share article:

Graham Norton ditched Tinder because he didn't want to meet "broken people".

The 55-year-old chat show host split from his ex Andrew Smith three years ago, and he didn't have much luck with online dating before deciding to quit the app.

Speaking to Closer magazine, he explained: "I was on Tinder a couple of years ago, but I'm not on it now. I felt like I'd done it. There's a law of diminishing returns on Tinder.

"I met a few people and thought, "God, there are a lot of broken people in the world and I don't really need to meet them" - I don't need to be part of their damage."

Graham joked that alcohol is one of his passions now, and although he's drinking less nowadays he's wary of admitting it.

He added: "Booze is one of my great loves. Lots of people drink, so it's not like I have a niche interest.

"I've probably started drinking less as I've got older but if I say, "I've cut down," then I feel like the prigs have won.

"I think people should drink whatever they want to drink, because drinking is fun!"

The star previously revealed he wouldn't use Grindr - a geosocial networking mobile app geared towards gay and bisexual men - in his quest for love because he didn't think his employers at the BBC would approve of the app.

Opening up on his reasons for snubbing the service, he said: "I couldn't do Grindr because of what it is and because I work for the BBC.

"But I felt Tinder was socially acceptable, I could do Tinder."
