But now, she has opened up about her struggles with love as a trans woman.

Izzard said: "I would like to start dating, but it's complicated with me being a trans woman.

“It's going to have to be a very confident and strong-minded woman who has a relationship with me,” she told the Daily Mail.

Izzard was previously in a relationship with British singer Sarah Townsend, with the pair meeting at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1989.

In 2018, the comedian said: “I would love to have kids one day, but I am trying to work out how to do that.”
