Davina McCall looks radiant as ever in a bright yellow flowing dress as fans agree she looks 'better with age'.

The 54-year-old shared an image of herself in the dress, from Australian brand Zimmermann, standing on a balcony in sunny Spain, where she's filming her new Channel 4 dating show Language of Love.

The TV presenter, known for her health and fitness regime, shared the behind-the-scenes image with the caption, "Tonight's dress for #languageofloves double bill was @zimmermann. Love this colour @channel4."

She also credited stylists Abigail Rose White and Angie Smith, hairstylist Michael Douglas and make-up artist Cheryl Phelps Gardiner.

Fellow celeb friends commented their appreciation of the look. Presenter, influencer and author Chessie King wrote (or shouted), "YOU ARE NOT JUST A RAY OF SUNSHINE BUT THE ENTIRE THING" with a sun emoji.

Chef and TV and radio broadcaster Andi Oliver said, "Oh gosh that's gorgeous!! I LOVE yellow and it looks great on you! X"

Fans also showered McCall in compliments, with many commenting, "Stunning", "Beautiful dress" and one writing, "@davinamccall you're like a fine wine that gets better with age."

McCall is co-hosting Language of Love, featuring a group of Brits and a group of Spaniards seeking love in a country estate, despite not speaking each other's language, with Ricky Merino, 36.

Davina also shared her outfit for the final of The Masked Singer UK on the weekend, with a glittering strapless silver mini dress by Retrofete, crediting the same team for the whole look.

She said she "really really loved" her hair, which was waved with blonde ends, a slightly different look to usual.

Many opted to comment fire emojis, including Amanda Holden, Russell Kane, and Caroline Hirons. Laura Mvula also wrote, "You sexy gurl" Gabrielle wrote, "Looking incredible as always."

McCall was the cover star for the January/February edition of Women's Health, revealing her favourite method of exercise in an accompanying interview.

"I would say that drum and bass boxing is my favourite way to work out. I get so excited by the music that the workout doesn't feel like a workout, it just feels like I'm clubbing," she said.

Speaking on the upside of getting older, she said, "It's a time of liberation," in reference to the menopause. "It's a time of shedding the shackles of inhibition and of giving a damn.

"That [confidence I have now] is my age. Because I haven't always felt like that. It's not just being on telly and it's not just being a show-off.

"It's that I don't really care what people think, which is very liberating."

Discussing the physical and mental motivations for her fitness, she said, "If I feel that I’ve had a slobby couple of weeks and I have put on a bit of weight or I need to tone up, I will lower my calorie intake and exercise maybe a tiny bit harder.

"[But] for me, working out isn’t just for Christmas and New Year. It’s not just to get in the bikini. It’s to stay alive longer, and I really enjoy the way that it helps my head stay clear of negativity."

'It’s just a win-win in every sense.’

McCall regularly posts fitness, exercise tips, and honest and motivational videos on social media.
