Rod Stewart's estranged wife, supermodel Rachel Hunter, claims being single "sucks" - as she believes people were put on the planet to fall in love.

Hunter, 36, is soon to finalise her divorce with the MAGGIE MAY singer and admits she finds singledom frustrating, and can't wait for the buzz of being in a new relationship.

She says, "I'm not seeing anyone at the moment and it's very frustrating because I love being in a relationship and not having someone sucks.

"I think that's why we were all put here on earth - to find love.

"I miss the friendship, the humour, the adventure and, of course, the sex that comes with any good relationship."
