The 41-year-old presenter defended her recent risqué Twitter exchange with boyfriend Jack Cockings, saying that she is at the stage where her romantic life needs to be exciting.
"I like my men wild and unscripted," she told The Sun. "I'm so naughty, what can I say? I'm a cheeky gal."
Going on to describe Cockings as a "great guy", she added: "Men don't really approach me. I think they are a bit scared, to be honest. I mean I get wolf whistles but that's easy from the safety of a van.
"At 41, I've got to that age where I think if men don't want to approach me they can sod off."
Sykes declared her feelings for her partner on Twitter following the publication of the story, telling him: "you are my everything!!! Xxxx I heart Cockings xxxx."
The 26-year-old roofer replied: "I know you do Mrs Rabbit;) I feel the same xxxx."
Cockings was previously forced to deny claims that he cheated on his ex-girlfriend with Sykes.
