Stand-up comic Rosie Jones has said she wants to show disabled people can also have healthy sex lives.

The comedian, who has cerebral palsy, has written for and appeared on shows including The Last Leg and 8 Out Of 10 Cats, and fronted TV programmes such as From An Angel, about her view on the world.

Jones, from Bridlington, East Yorkshire, said she had struggled with being both gay and disabled growing up because she found people with disabilities were treated like “victims” who “didn’t have a sexuality”.
