Kelly Ripa wants to act as Shannen Doherty's matchmaker.

The 52-year-old actress has revealed that Kelly, 53, is determined to help her to find love, following her split from ex-husband Kurt Iswarienko.

The actress said on her 'Let’s Be Clear with Shannen Doherty' podcast: "Kelly is awesome because I just saw her when I did her show and at the commercial break, she was like, ‘Are you ready? Are you ready to date? Are you ready for a boyfriend? I’m going to find you someone'.

"She started asking me like, ‘What’s your list? What do you need?’ She was like, ‘Oh, I think I got somebody in mind.’”

Shannen feels her showbiz pal is the perfect person to help her to find a new man.

She said: "I was like, dude, just text me and you can. You’re 100 percent the right person to start setting me up. I’m fine with that."

In November, Shannen revealed that she's "open" to finding love - despite her ongoing cancer battle.

The actress told PEOPLE at the time: "I was not ready at all before three weeks ago. And something happens. There's always a trigger, just a moment that you have, somebody says something to you, your ex says one thing to you and you're like, 'Okay, yeah, I'm good. I'm good.' I have closure and I can move on in a really healthy way."

Shannen added that she's "pretty sure" she'll meet someone new in the coming months.

The actress - who has been diagnosed with stage four breast cancer - shared: "I don’t think I’m going to be single forever.

"I have to love myself and reckon with the past, really, before I can move forward, and now I’m pretty sure I’ll meet somebody - hopefully soon."
