Davina McCall has said she is finally finished with working out merely to ‘look hot in a bikini’, and that she’s now focusing on her health.
The Masked Singer star, 53, is known for having both a banging bod and for being a fitness guru, and she has now explained that her health goals have changed during the pandemic and that she also has a new appreciation for things that she’s missed, like socialising with friends and going clubbing.
Discussing what being fit and healthy means to her, she told Women’s Health UK: ‘Previously, my “keeping fit and healthy” was all about my body and making myself look hot in a bikini… and actually now it’s just about staying alive longer and being in the best possible position to beat anything should it come my way.
‘A lot has been said about health and fitness for your mental health this year, and we all know that it really makes an enormous difference.’
She said she is so committed to squeezing exercise into her day she will even do it at night, adding: ‘The other night I exercised at 9.30 at night…
‘I’m just trying to squeeze in a workout on my fitness platform, Own Your Goals, between cleaning the house, doing a ton of laundry, cooking and everything else.’
The former Big Brother host lamented all that we’ve lost due to the coronavirus pandemic, too.
‘My 2021 goal is just to really try and enjoy and let myself go and let loose when we can because when you have your liberty taken from you, it makes you realise how little you make of your liberty when you have it, and how much I have taken my liberty for granted…’
Listing all the things she wants to do again, she went on: ‘I want to go out, I want to meet up with friends, I want to have tons of dinner parties, I want to cook food, I want to have loads of people in my house, I want to have parties, I want to go out clubbing, I want to listen to music, I want to go to festivals…
‘I want to do it all, because I never took advantage of all those things when they were right there and now they’ve gone!’
Same, Davina. Same.
The TV favourite has become known for being an advocate for fitness in recent years, and often shares her workouts on Instagram, as well as snaps of her super-fit physique.
Davina will host a free home workout as part of the Women’s Health Weekenders on the Women’s Health UK YouTube channel at 9am on January 9.
