"I'm not going into details," she said, giggling. "Right now there's nothing serious. I was a late starter on the romantic front. I didn't start dating until I was in my 30s . . . I quite like having somebody to cuddle. I like that intimacy, it would be wonderful."

Brand, recently divorced from Katy Perry, is said to have dumped American girlfriend Isabella Brewster for Halliwell.
