‘First foray into thong bikini at 50’ Davina McCall shows her figure in candid swimwear snap

Davina McCall has wowed her followers with a snap of her ‘first foray’ into the world of thong bikinis – at the age of 50.’

TV presenter Davina, who celebrates her 50th birthday on October 16th, posted a picture of herself modelling the swimwear after a morning run on her Instagram account, telling her 688k followers: ‘First foray into thong bikini … at 50 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ this might look like I’m showing off…. I am. I’m pretty chuffed, having thought I would be in one pieces after 40 I am so happy πŸ˜ƒ.’

In the hashtags, she added that she was ‘growing old disgracefully, writing: ‘#growolddisgracefully🀘😈 #girlstrip #cheekyview πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–’

Fans applauded Davina’s positive attitude towards her body, with hundreds taking to the comment section to share their praise (and envy!) for the candid post.

‘I’m 50 and my bum looks just like yours!!……..in my dreamsπŸ˜‚,’ one joked. ‘I’m not quite there yet, but you do make me get off the sofa!! #davinamotivation πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ˜˜’

‘If you’ve got it flaunt it!! Although to be fair…. people should learn to love their bodies – whatever their shape and size and flaunt it!!’ another wrote.

Many posters commented on the fact that Davina ‘works hard’ for her body, therefore earning the right to show it off – and it’s true that the star has made no secret of her dedication to healthy eating and exercise.

Earlier this month, the mum-of-three hit back at critics of her frequent fitness posts, advising them to ‘just unfollow’ her accounts if they found the updates annoying.

‘I do it because I know I get inspired by other people that do it,’ she explained.

‘If I look at the 6am club and they’ve all been out for a run then it inspires me to get off my butt and go out and do something myself. I’m just trying to inspire people and get people motivated.’
