Whoopi Goldberg is happy to be single.

The 61-year-old star has been married three times, and has also been involved in several high-profile relationships with the likes of Timothy Dalton and Ted Danson. But Whoopi insisted she is instead relishing her own company these days.

"I like living by myself," she said.

"I like not having to explain why there's stuff in the bathroom on the floor and why I haven't picked stuff up.

"And what came to me is the realisation that in a relationship, you have to work on it, strive to communicate. I don't wanna communicate, I have a cat."

Whoopi said she has become more at ease with the prospect of "being alone" as she's got older.

She told The Sun newspaper: "I'm quite happy about it because I'm not afraid of being alone. It doesn't mean that no one wants me, it's that I'm comfortable here now."

Meanwhile, the Academy Award-winning star has tipped TV chat-show host James Corden to present the Oscars in 2018.

Whoopi is a four-time host of the annual awards bash and feels the Brit who is poised to present the Grammys next month is perfectly suited to the role.

She said: "The way that these shows work things like the Grammys and the Oscars they have to be done by passionate people."

Whoopi said James, 38, has the right level of enthusiasm to host a big awards event, and admitted she loves watching the 'Late Late Show' host on screen.

She explained: "You have to be passionate about it. We know he's passionate about music, about movies, so it's fun to watch him do it. I would watch him do anything."
