Cat Deeley won't settle for second best when it comes to finding the right man.
The TV presenter, 34, who is now a success on both sides of the Atlantic, split from her actor boyfriend Jack Huston after two years together in July.
But she told the Daily Mirror: "At some stage I think I'd like to tie the knot. My mum and dad have been married for over 30 years and they've had a great relationship. But that success is really hard to emulate. When you've seen something work so brilliantly, you almost don't want to settle for it not being fantastic."
She added: "The same question could be asked of me in 10 years time and I may go 'no, marriage is not for me'. It does constantly change all the time but right now, I like the concept!"
The star revealed that she is in no rush to start a family, saying: "At some stage in the future I'd like to have kids.But not right now and it's great that my brother Max is a dad so my parents get to be busy being grandparents. I don't feel any urgency at all!"
Cat, who moved to Los Angeles in 2006, also said she would love to work with her SMTV Live co-stars Ant and Dec again.
She said: "We talk about working together. I'd definitely love it to happen. We haven't decided on exactly what we'd like to do but we've all agreed that we will at some point in the future."
