The mum-of-three is a big fan of keeping fit, and her workouts include using the trampoline in the garden, spinning and cycling. The Jump presenter has previously said she sometimes falls off the wagon when it comes to healthy eating. Speaking to Fit and Well magazine, Davina said: "Last summer, we'd had an amazing time away with the children and I got back and thought my jeans felt a bit tight. I'd put on 6lb in two months. The weight always goes on my bum and my thighs. All I could think was I had to get into the dress for This Time Next Year and look exactly the same as I had done a year ago."
