Despite her romantic woes, Lena is keen to get back in the dating game but has found it hard now that she’s sober: ‘Here’s the thing that I’m finding about dating here. I love being in England, love the culture, love the people.

‘I’m sober, it’s a choice, and I would say sober dating in the UK is a roughie. It was easy to find guys when I would drink because I would drink a lot, go over to their house, throw up and then they would have to let me stay.

‘But in Wales when I was being a polite woman of dignity and grace, much more challenging. If anyone in the audience knows of a nice, sober, respectable but a little bit freaky man who would like to take me to dinner, I’m open.’

Amusing: Lena added that barely anyone has recognised her since she moved to Wales, and said: 'I just look like any Welsh lady walking around with nine hairless pets'

Lena Dunham clearly loves 16Arlington’s feathery creations. Remember the very fluffy custom made dress she wore on the red carpet at the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood premiere earlier this year?

It’s something of a specialty for the brand, so it’s no surprise to see that the ‘Minelli’ midi is trimmed with feathers along the hemline. It’s a glamorous touch to this otherwise simple strapless LBD, which was the perfect choice for Lena’s appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show.

Lily James and Maya Henry have both also worn this dress so click (right) to buy it, and you’ll be in seriously stylish company!

Or flirt with feathers with the help of our edit below instead. This sequin embellished version by 16Arlington has got party season written all over it…

She explained: ‘It was a show about growing up and being in your twenties and we all had to go and be in our thirties and make other things but I would love at some point once we’ve all gotten to enjoy our time in Star Wars per se, I would love to do a movie at some point. That would be a joy.

‘It’s been good not to be naked on TV for a few years. [I was naked] so much. At first it was kind of novel and by the end I was like, “Oh God I go back to work and be naked again.”
