Davina McCall highlighted her struggles and journey with the menopause in her Channel 4 2021 documentary, Davina McCall: Sex, Myths and the Menopause and she’s now announced she is filming another show.

The new documentary, also airing on Channel 4, will be titled, Davina McCall: The Menopause Brain Drain, and it’ll aim to investigate whether women are sidelined, sacked or forced to go part-time at work when they start the menopause.

Davina said, “I have never had a reaction like the one I received after Sex, Myths and the Menopause aired. It was profoundly moving and deeply humbling, and what I realised is that women need more answers, more support and a voice.”

"Many amazing women have laid the groundwork before me in this field, and I want to arm women with the facts so they can make informed decisions about their bodies – I truly believe we have the power to inspire change in societies' perceptions, the workplace, relationships and so much more."

Having had such amazing feedback from the documentary, Davina was pictured at Parliament Square in October celebrating the reduction of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) prescription charges.

She shared a photo captioned, "I never saw myself becoming this woman. The woman with the megaphone. In parliament square. I've never been an activist. But I am now. The misinformation and misconceptions around the menopause make me want to ROAR! @channel4 has let us continue our menopause journey, the doc will be out next year…"

"The amazing @menoscandal is collating the most unbelievable information for it, as we speak … This doc will cover post breast cancer, testosterone, Alzheimer’s, comedy (we are generally bloody funny) culture and the workplace. Peri and menopausal women need rebranding, to be seen as the funny, sassy, experienced, liberated, boss [XXXXXX] we are."
