Stephanie Waring is waiting until "the time is right" to start dating again.

The 'Hollyoaks' actress split from boyfriend of five-years Dan Hooper earlier this year and despite admitting she's no longer angry with 'Coronation Street' star Kym Marsh - who began dating him just six weeks later - she insists she's just not ready for another relationship.

She said: "I'm not a party animal - I like to go out for dinner and have a few drinks and go home. It's nice to be with my girlfriends and just have a good old gossip, dance and flirt. I won't have a boyfriend until the time is right."

The 35-year-old beauty - who has three-year-old daughter Lexi with Dan - insists she put her feud with Kym, 38, behind her for the sake of both of their children.

She explained: "Kym and I are fine now - we have to be for the sake of our children. Life is too short to hold grudges and be bitter and I'm not that sort of person. I'm quite happy and positive."

Stephanie is now trying to put some of the weight she lost following the heartbreaking revelations back on.

She added to Closer magazine: "I've lost weight - I went through a really stressful time. But I really want to put it back on, in a healthy way ... I want to be healthy from the inside. I haven't worked out since last December and I don't intend to get back in the gym anytime soon. Yoga is a lot more gentle."
