"It was a conscious decision and I knew I had to focus. I bought myself a racer bike, a trampoline and some Tracy Anderson DVDs and I got a good nutritionist. I have been eating at specific times and trying to get more sleep.
"I feel so much better in myself. I'm feeling as fit and well as I possibly can at this time of my life. That's all we can ever want – to feel our best self at whatever age we're at and to be able to celebrate that."
