Lisa Snowdon has opened up about her relationship with George Clooney, calling it “wild”, promising to keep their sex life a secret.
The TV presenter, 50, dated the 61-year-old Hollywood actor for five years after they met on a Martini advert in 2000.
Speaking to The Sun, Lisa recalled: “George was lovely, a really nice man, great fun and we had a blast. It was pretty wild.

She added: ‘Sometimes I think it will be written on my gravestone – ‘George Clooney dated Lisa Snowdon. “”
But she remained tight-lipped about the naughtiest details fans wanted to know, saying, “I’ll never tell,” in response to questions about George’s sexual prowess.
Lisa admitted that although she had lost touch with George over the years, she remained friends with her Ocean’s Eleven co-star Matt Damon.

Speaking on I’m A Celebrity in 2016, Lisa said of the actor: “He came to my birthday party. He’s really nice.
The comments about her former flame come after Lisa bravely opened up about menopause, admitting it was a time when she felt “completely alone and lost”.
It was in her early 40s that she began to feel a sense of “loss of control,” which she now recognizes as the start of her perimenopause – the transition period before menopause.
Since being placed on the right HRT after meeting Dr Naomi Potter last year, Lisa said she had ‘got her brain back’ after years of feeling ‘awful and angry’.

Addressing OK! magazine, the model said of her changes during menopause, “I felt completely alone and lost. It was a horrible, angry feeling and lack of sleep, with skin, hair and body changes. I ended up gaining quite a bit of weight.
While Lisa, who has modeled for a slew of beauty commercials and high fashion covers such as Elle, often exhibits a “pretty positive body image”, her weight gain has taken a toll on her confidence.
She explained, “I was a little broken when nothing in my wardrobe suited me. I remember sitting on the floor and just crying.

HRT has been ‘amazing’, the former Capital Breakfast host admitted, but recalled realizing she needed to watch the food and drink she ate, as well as exercise .
Her fitness regimen is mostly centered around strength training, with Lisa feeling “more positive” thanks to her steady increases in serotonin.
The longtime TV star was not alone as she battled her ‘perimenopausal madness’ as she rekindled her relationship with her fiancé George Smart, who she called a ‘holy’.

“I know menopause can break relationships, but I’m lucky that George came into my life at that time. For me, it was a godsend. For him, it was difficult. We let’s laugh now,” she said.
The couple first crossed paths two decades ago, when Lisa’s career began at MTV.
After getting back together through a close friend of Lisa’s, the “familiarity” was instantaneous.
George cemented his love for a self-proclaimed “really happy” Lisa in 2016 by taking a knee.
Menopause occurs when a woman stops having periods and can no longer get pregnant naturally.
It is a natural part of aging, which occurs in women between the ages of 45 and 55.
However, 1 in 100 women may experience menopause before the age of 40, which is called premature menopause or premature ovarian failure.
Symptoms often include hot flashes, night sweats, low mood, decreased sex drive, vaginal dryness, increased facial hair, and difficulty sleeping.
According to NHS advice, symptoms can start months or even years before your period stops and last around four years after your last period.
Premature or early menopause can occur at any age, and in many cases there is no clear cause.
