Exclusive: Davina Mccall bares all – her most revealing interview ever!
Presenter Davina Mccall reveals how she has overcome her body doubts
Davina Mccall may be the picture of health, but just like the rest of us, the 51-year-old has had times when she’s felt less than confident about her looks.
‘I’ve been full of self-loathing,’ the mum-of-three tells Woman’s Own. ‘For instance, after my body has been ravaged by having a baby, I’ve looked at it and thought, “What has happened to me?” In those times exercise hasn’t just been about looking better, it’s been about feeling better. It’s given my mental health a boost, cleared out the cobwebs and made me feel better about my body, even if it’s not looking like Kylie Minogue’s.’
She’s just released her 15th fitness DVD, Davina: Power Box & Tone, and says that boxing is currently her go-to exercise.
So what is her favourite part of her body? ‘This has changed over the past year,’ she reveals. ‘I would struggle to say a bit I don’t like about my body now. Even though my bum and backs of my legs have got cellulite on them, the people who love me, like my kids, don’t see it. I’m critical of my body, but they think I look amazing. That unconditional love makes me feel incredible.’
