The 51-year-old, whose 17-year marriage to Matthew Robertson ended in 2017, admitted that she sometimes ‘fakes’ being happy.

“Sometimes I’m faking it. Sometimes I’m struggling,” the TV presenter told The Mirror.

“There’s been a few occasions where I’m struggling to see any positives in this at all.

“Happiness is marvellous. I love it when I’m happy, but I’m not always happy.”

Yay you lucky people … it’s dvd time ( Boxing Day #powerboxandtone ) which can only mean one thing. Gratuitous pictures of me in a bikini … Dont care what you think 😂😂👍🏻 I feel good in my skin. And leading a healthy life is a huge part of why I feel body positive. I don’t judge anyone for the life they choose or the shape they are . Life is too frickin short … if you hate all of this stuff then seriously unfollow me. But if you are shy Lycra wearer or a new mum or just really struggle getting out of the house or just need to crack out 10 mins quickly before work ( I did morning gratitude this am and then abs and arms….) then download the dvd. I do it all the time … short workouts .. or 1 long one if u fancy a challenge🙌🏻 hugs this Christmas 🎄 you are lovely 😊 and you @sarahblendfit are particularly lovely … thank you for being part of my life . ❤️

Davina added: “It might look like I’m always happy because I quite often just show the bits when I’m happy. But I am often guilty of thinking, ‘No one really wants to see me when I’m unhappy’.

“The times when I’ve been honest – I posted on Christmas Day about loneliness and it wasn’t that I was massively lonely, but I did think it’s a tough day – and the feedback I got from that. It’s funny when you do put yourself out there a bit, you get good stuff back.”

There may be one thing putting a permanent smile on Davina’s face though as she recently hinted that she has found love again.

Taking to Instagram earlier this month, the TV personality shared a cryptic message while appreciating the simpler things in life – including “being loved”.

The meme reads: “I really, really think the secret to being loved is to love. And the secret to being interesting is to be interested. And the secret to being a friend is being a friend.”

Amen 🙏🏻 to that

Appearing to suggest that the sweet message resided with her personal life, Davina captioned the snap: “Amen to that.”

Davina, who shares her brood of Holly, 17, Tilly, 15, and 12-year-old son Chester with 50-year-old Matthew, is believed to have been single since their split, but she recently revealed exactly what she’s looking for in her next relationship.

“What I want is, I want men – and this is for my daughters and for my son and this is for me – to stand next to me as a partner. So everything is a partnership,” she told The Mirror.
