When it comes to exercise she swears by Total Gym’s at-home workout machines, but even Christie says she’s gained weight during the COVID-19 lockdown. 

“I did put on a couple of pounds," she told Extra TV. "So I dragged my Total Gym into my bedroom.

"Getting out and gardening is a lot of work…We’ll take the boat to a deserted beach and we’ll do speed walks or running.

"I’m determined to get back to my fighting shape."

Christie also isn’t shy to admit she’s had non-invasive surgical treatments, Xeomin for her frown lines and skin-lifting Ultherapy to smooth out her neck and décolletage. 

"I wondered if people would think I'm phony and fake," she told People magazine. "But it's better to be honest and say, 'Yeah, this is what I do.'" 

She added: "I want all women who may feel like tweaking a little something to know that it’s OK to take advantage of the newer non-invasive treatments.

"These innovations worked for me so I want to share what I’ve learned – why keep it a secret? If something is bugging you, see what science and technology offer you to feel great. I think today’s modern women should support one another’s choices to look and feel our best.”

Christie is a mum to Alexa Ray Joel, 34, with her second ex-husband Billy Joel, and Jack Brinkley-Cook, 25, and Sailor Brinkley-Cook, 22, from her fourth marriage to Peter Cook
