Davina McCall feels "better" in her body than she did one decade ago.

The 'The Jump' presenter is fast approaching her 50th birthday, which she will celebrate on October 16, and while the star had an "issue" about reaching 40, she feels more at ease with hitting the milestone next month because she is feeling happier as she matures.

Speaking to The Sunday Mirror's Notebook magazine, the brunette beauty said: "I had a bit of an issue turning 40, it felt much, much older than being 30, but I guess I really do feel better than I did 10 years ago. It can't possibly be true that I'm feeling better as I'm getting older, but I am.

"The really big stuff all happened in my 30s - I had three kids, I got married,

life was absolutely crazy. I turned 40 and it was just all the stuff that comes with having a family, it was about having a normal life. Now my kids are a lot more independent, I think my 50s are about rediscovering me."

And the former 'Big Brother' host has noticed a difference in her appearance too as she has got older, and she has claimed her skin has started to get "more wrinkly".

She added: "And also by becoming happier with myself in my head, I'm able to look at things and be much more relaxed about them and be a bit softer on myself and others. My skin might be getting more wrinkly, but I've compensated by being happier."

Davina - who has Holly, 16, Tilly, 13, and Chester, 10, with her husband Matthew Robertson - plans to celebrate her special day in style with a big blow out at London's nightclub Café de Paris with "700" friends.

Speaking about the upcoming bash, she said: "I'm doing a massive club night on my birthday at the Café de Paris with 700 of my closest friends and we're all going to go mental! I'll be on the water of course. I know, it's so boring, but I haven't had a drink for years."
