"When I was working out that I was autistic it clarified a lot of things for me and one of those things was ‘that’s why I never seem to be able to make it work.

"That’s why I always feel claustrophobic in a relationship. That’s why I kind of think that’s probably not intended for me.”

John continued, saying he’d heard she was a Doctor Who fan as he asked her who her favourite Doctor was.

Anne revealed that David Tennant was her favourite doctor, as he agreed and high fived her.

The Governess said it was nice to be considered a ‘gay icon and a lesbian icon.’

Speaking previously about saucy messages she receives from fans, Anne told The Sun: "I have to say to them I’m very flattered, but at the same time your gaydar is broken.

"Quite often they say ‘yes I didn’t think you were, just thought I’d try my luck’," she revealed.
