Ulrika Jonsson has blasted model Caprice Bourret’s views on telling women to ‘take one for the team’ and sleep with their partners even when they don’t want to.

The TV presenter accused the American model, 49, of ‘blurring a very precarious line of consent’ after comments she made on marital sex while discussing her marriage to businessman husband Ty Comfort, 55.

In a recent interview with OK! at her Ibiza home, Caprice spoke about her relationship with her husband, labelling sex ‘really important’, and claimed: ‘Men are simple creatures – you feed them, give them compliments and give them sex and they are so happy.

‘You can’t say, “I’m tired” or “I have a headache” – no! Take one for the team, because it’s between five to 10 minutes of your life.’

The By Caprice entrepreneur went on to declare that if sex went in a relationship ‘it’s done and dusted’ as she shared that her and Ty were ‘like rabbits’.

However, Ulrika was having none of that, and in a column for The Sun criticised Caprice’s ‘dangerous’ comments.

She wrote: ‘I feel embarrassed for women like Caprice who still have such an antiquated view of gender-typical roles in a relationship.’

The former weather presenter also compared Caprice’s views to ex-Prime Minister Theresa May’s ‘cringe-inducing’ opinion that domestic bliss with her husband Philip included the fact that ‘“there are boy jobs and girl jobs”’.

Ulrika, though, branded the Dancing On Ice contestant’s words ‘considerably more dangerous’ and charged the American with ‘blurring a very precarious line of consent’. 

‘If she had a daughter, would she be urging her to lie back and think of England?’, she asked in her written reaction to the comments.

Caprice and Ty share two sons, Jett and Jax, seven, who were born just three weeks apart when Caprice fell pregnant soon after the pair’s surrogate.

On Saturday night, Caprice responded to Ulrika’s article by posting a statement on Instagram, which Metro.co.uk was directed to by reps, alongside pictures of her and Ty and a short clip.

In the video, she explained that she had ‘been inundated with messages on some article that Ulrika Johnsson wrote about me’ and said that while she’d normally ignore it, ‘I had to have some fun with this’ and directed fans to her written post.

Tagging the 53-year-old in her response, Caprice commented: ‘Don’t get your knickers in a twist love. I am so glad I have inspired you with content for your column in @thesun today…

‘I am so sorry you have had a hard time with past relationships … I am not having a go but you have been very public about this …I wish for u2 also have 10 years of amazing intimacy and blessed with a healthy ,awesome relationship as I have had with my hubby #soblessed … u have to work at it but the rewards are empowering for us as women and mommas …and it’s sooooo much fun.’

The model went on to gift a peace offering of one of her bedding sets to Ulrika, cheekily suggesting that ‘maybe it will give you tons of luck in between the sheets’ before calling on people to ’empower and support each other and have a bit of fun too’.

A previous column by Ulrika had seen her draw the ire of former glamour model Katie Price, after she said she was horrified by the mum-of-five’s latest surgical procedure.

In a now-deleted post, Katie shared a snap of Ulrika and told her to ‘take a look at your self [sic] and your career’, before going on to suggest ‘you need to take a leaf out of my book as you look haggard my darling’.
