She was seen chatting to the programme’s host Alex Jones, 45, in the studio, with the broadcaster wearing a navy blue jumper and bright red trousers.

It comes after Davina said she is experiencing a ‘second spring’ after the changing responsibilities that have come with getting older have enabled her to go out with her friends into the small hours once again.

The star has spoken openly about ageing and going through the menopause, and she says as her children Holly, 21, Tilly, 19, and Chester, 16, get older, she has been able to get back in touch with her more youthful side.  

She told woman&home: ‘So many of my friends are going out dancing again. I used to, maybe once a year, but now I go out a lot and get home at 2am.

‘I can sleep until 10am because my kids sleep until midday, and I enjoy it.

‘It’s like being given a new lease of life. The Chinese call it the second spring and that’s a really nice concept. You don’t ever need to become old.

‘I think there’s been a shift in expectations from society about women of a certain age. There is no “certain” age any more. We can do whatever we want.’  

Davina said the menopause was an amazing rebirth for her, adding ‘we all owe it to younger women to go out there and live our best lives’.

It comes after Davina opened up about feeling ‘unattractive’ while suffering from severe menopause symptoms.

The screen star who now takes HRT to help manage her symptoms, recalled when she was suffering from night sweats, dry skin and brain fog and admitted she didn’t ‘feel sexy’ anymore.  

Davina, who was perimenopause at 44, spoke to The Sun’s Fabulous Magazine about how the changes to her body had an impact on her sex drive as she was constantly ‘exhausted’ from waking up in the night as a result of her symptoms.

Davina told the publication: ‘I lost something of myself. I changed. I couldn’t quite pinpoint how I’d changed, but I’d definitely changed. I didn’t feel myself.

‘I felt spectacularly unattractive during my sweaty nights and my sore, dry vagina and my dry skin — and my brain fog. None of this made me feel sexy.

‘Being menopausal can be a very lonely place. You can start feeling like you are the only person in the world who feels this way, and that no one understands what you are going through.’
