Davina McCall "doesn't care" what people think about her.

The 54-year-old TV star is embracing life in her 50s and admitted that she has stopped "giving a damn" about what others think.

She told the Jan/Feb 2022 edition of Women's Health UK magazine - of which Davina is the cover star - that: "It’s a time of liberation. 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."

The 'Masked Singer' panellist explained that she finds it "liberating" to have stopped worrying about the opinions of others and she quipped that women of a menopausal age can be "bloody funny".

She said: "It’s that I don’t really care what people think, which is very liberating. I’ve never met a more kind of rowdy bunch of irreverent people than menopausal women. When we’re left to our own devices, we are very bloody funny."

The former 'Big Brother' host also spoke of how she now enjoys life without any stress or drama, adding that she is currently in a "happy" and "balanced" frame of mind.

She said: “I have no drama...no stress. I’m just in a really good, happy, balanced state. Sometimes I feel a bit guilty…but I’ve got nothing to complain about."

Davina's admissions come soon after the telly star gave a speech to employees about how to manage the menopausal stage of life and balancing it with work.

She said: "If you could get back to feeling yourself, there is a really high chance that you will stay in your job – because most of us really enjoy our jobs. Sometimes, you feel like you’ve lost your marbles so badly that you are unable to continue [your work]. Now imagine the drain on businesses and the economy if 13 million women leave their jobs because they just felt like they couldn’t continue."
