In February, Martine revealed it has taken her ‘such a long time to do what works for (her)’ as she opened up about her health and staying in shape.

She said: ‘I think it takes a long time to work out what your own recipe is. It’s taken me such a long time to look through all the stuff that’s out there, and do just what works for me. So it’s not as simple as just going on a crazy diet. I just feel it’s really important to encourage women to just be the best version of themselves.’

Detailing her diet, she added: ‘The 80/20 rule is what works for me. For 80% of my week, I will have mainly just healthy proteins, vegetables and fruit, organic and veggie juices, and Flora ProActiv spread. And then I’ll have treats 20% of the time.’

She details how she indulges in pizza, chocolate or a G&T for special occasions, noting that she doesn’t feel guilty because she’s doing ‘good bits for my heart’ for most of the week.

On taking cold showers to help with Fibromyalgia, she explained: ‘It’s not every day, but I have one when I can.

‘I’ll have a cold shower at the end [of a hot shower] and stay in there as long as I can. It’s really kind of makes me feel like I’ve been WD-40’d.’

‘I have been really good emotionally for a long time and I have felt a lot calmer. It has been good to realise it is okay to do things at your own pace.’
