In her documentary Davina shared the shocking statistic that seven out of 10 women in menopause struggle with brain fog, and she shared how it impacted her career, explaining: "Brain fog is horrific. When I had it I couldn't read autocues because something weird happened to my eyes, I couldn't remember celebrity names. I seriously thought I was going to have to give up presenting. I was so full of shame I just couldn't talk to people."
