The Long Lost Family presenter says she wants to motivate other people her age to begin exercising, no matter their situation. "I don’t want people to look at what I do and think: 'Oh well, it's all right for her. She can work out all of this time' because I don't want them to use what I do as a stick to beat themselves with.

Davina credits regular exercise with helping to keep her happy and improve her mental health – something which becomes ever more important during menopause.
