She said: ‘When I was 30 and looked forward to 50, I was like, “Life’s going to be over, 50 is going to be terrible, I’m going to be in Scholl shoes. I’m never going to wear a bikini ever again.”

‘And actually, I obsess about categorically busting every myth. It’s becoming a bit of a personal mission. If somebody tells me, “Well, you’re his age, you shouldn’t be doing this anymore,” I’m going to do it even more, just to annoy them.’

Touching upon the break-up of her marriage, she added:  ‘{You] need to experience difficulty to learn how to be resilient.

‘If you haven’t been through anything difficult, the minute you do, it will hit you like a freight train and you won’t know what to do because you’ve never been given the tools to deal with it. 

‘When I think of all the stuff that happened with my mum in my childhood, and the drugs and the alcohol, and my sister dying, and knowing I got through all that… all of those things make you think “throw anything at me – I’ll be okay.” 

‘It might be hard, but I do feel I could deal with anything.’

The fitness enthusiast, who tragically lost her sister Caroline to cancer in 2012, admitted that with age she has realised what she wants from life admitting her outlook has changed from her 30’s. 

‘I’m in a good place,’ she said. ‘I’ve realised that I don’t need much. When I was in my 30s, I was like, “I want the house, I want the dog, I want the car.” But I don’t need it. I don’t really want it.’

The brunette beauty proudly flaunted her gym-honed figure for the accompanying photoshoot, flashing her washboard abs in a red bikini before slipping into a white knitted jumper and silky floral pants.  

Since quitting drugs at the age of 25, Davina has also quit smoking and drinking, and has inspired others with her incredible fitness regime.

Speaking about her bikini body, she told the publication: ‘I’ve got more saggy skin because of my age, but that doesn’t bother me – not a f**k is given. 

‘People are always going on about [wearing] bikinis on beaches and I’m like, “Why wouldn’t you? Who cares?” We need to get out there and do it. We need to show them it’s fine and we don’t care.’
