we all need a bit of sunshine!

Who better to star on our August cover than Davina McCall? She is a blast of sunshine in human form and, on the day of our shoot, we were blessed with glorious weather. But, even had it been pouring with rain, with her megawatt smile, high energy, generosity of spirit and openness, Davina would have single-handedly lit up the set! She’s a true beacon of positivity and her enthusiasm for life is contagious. ‘My 50s are a banger of a decade!’ she says. ‘I’m feeling a lot more at peace with myself… Once you stop trying to be perfect, it’s such a relief.’ I’ve recently been travelling around the country talking to readers in research groups, and I’m sure Davina’s message is something that will resonate; many of you talk about…

Q.What is your favourite holiday memory? A.Dancing the night away in a little Greek taverna to live music with the charming restaurant owners. SOPHIE JUDD It’s the beach hut, the never-ending cycle of tea making, the sandy knees and the bracing sea. The whole family makes the annual return to the hut; we mark the children’s growth with a photo in the same place each year. When I think of happier times, it’s there.

I really admire Shelley Hull for writing about dealing with facial disfigurement (June); I identified so much with what she said. I had facial surgery in my early 20s and felt it came to define me. I was bullied at school and my parents seemed to ignore how I felt, so by the time I had surgery, I’d managed it pretty independently. It took three years and five operations, and I’m only now feeling confident at 57, but the insecurities never go. It’s so gratifying to know I’m not alone, and Shelley looks beautiful.

‘once you stop trying to be perfect, it’s such a relief’

Davina McCall is the kind of woman you want to be friends with. We know this because that’s how she makes the GH team feel when we meet her. She greets us all with tight hugs and, later, as she poses poolside, there are high kicks, howls of laughter and a good dose of cheeky humour: ‘Sorry everyone – flashed my bum!’ Life hasn’t always been easy for Davina: she was estranged from her mother, struggled with drugs and alcohol in her early 20s and was heartbroken when her sister, Caroline, died of cancer in 2012. She seemed happily married to Matthew Robertson, with whom she has three children – Holly, 17, Tilly, 15, and Chester, 12 – so it came as a shock when, in 2017, the couple announced they…
