Sky Sports presenter Kelly Cates divorces husband of 14 years Tom as she opens up about dating again

SKY Sports presenter Kelly Cates is divorcing her husband Tom after 14 years of marriage.

The daughter of football legend KennyDalglish says she is now single and divorce will be finalised soon.

Kelly, 45, says she is up for dating apps despite being self-conscious.

She said: “I don’t want to spend my precious free time with a random. But this is the thing, the thought of going on a date and spending an evening with someone and the end of it thinking, ‘Well I don’t really like you,’ I would be so resentful of them taking up my time.

“Obviously vice versa, but I’m not bothered about it from their perspective.

“Bearing in mind I don’t get to see the people I do like quite often, but i do know unless I want to spend the rest of my life alone… and I’ve got no real thoughts about long term relationships or anything like that.

“Imagine sitting there and halfway through you think, ‘God this guy’s an idiot’. You’ve just wasted a babysitter.”

Asked what dating had been like, she said: “Well there’s been a year of a pandemic. My options were limited.”

The mother-of-two told fellow presenter friend Gabby Logan on her The Mid Point podcast she couldn’t imagine a middle aged woman like herself being attractive

Kelly said: “There is a part of me, I don’t have a picture of me in my head of why a middle-aged, slightly overweight, mother-of-two could possibly be attractive to somebody. 

“I can’t get my head round that. It’s not that I’m putting myself down, it’s not a lack of confidence or a low self-esteem, it’s I just don’t know what that would look like.”

She joked: "I will not be writing my own bio on dating websites."
