Vivienne's dicing with dating danger

Model Vivienne Connolly has admitted that, finding herself single at the age of 42, she would consider joining an online dating site in her search for love, and has even considered Tinder.

"I might have to join a dating site," she said, "but I feel I'd get stick if I spent the whole time explaining myself."

It seems extraordinary that someone as attractive as Vivienne, left, should have trouble finding a partner, but as she admits, she isn't going to find love sitting at home.

There is a problem, how- ever, because if Vivienne does go through with her threat to join Tinder, notorious for being favoured by Ireland's younger singletons, she might one day come across something worse than an awkward conversation.

She might come across her son.
