Davina McCallhas told how she’s reclaiming her social life after the menopause and boasts regular 2am finishes and three nights out on the trot.
The 51-year-old, who has been sober for over 20 years, described her new lease of life as a ‘second spring’ that she has taken full advantage of now that her kids are grown up.
Speaking to OK!, she said: “My youngest is 16 and a lot more independent. He needs me less so I can go out and say I’ll be back at 2am and he’ll be fine. If I’m not back at all, even better – he’ll get some mates round. There’s a lot less weight on my shoulders.
“Sorry to bang on about menopause, but now I’ve got my hormones in check I’ve found a balance and I feel good again. Obviously, I don’t drink, which is the biggest blessing because it means I don’t get hangovers. It’s like I’ve been given a second chance at enjoying a nightlife. I put two or three nights in a row in.
"I never used to be able to do that as I always used to feel guilty as I wanted to be at home with the children. I often want to say to women my age, ‘Don’t worry too much – there will come a time when you feel freer again and you can reclaim a life.’”
She previously recalled how suffering with menopause symptoms, including severe night sweats and poor vision, gave her flashbacks to her days of drug dependency in her 20s.
Davina, who lives in Kent with herhairdresser boyfriend Michael Douglas and her children Holly, 21, Tilly, 19, and Chester, 16, has also discovered a newfound confidence since entering her fifties.
Despite every inch of her body being enviably toned, her legs had been a secret source of insecurity until her daughters enlightened her to the body positivity movement currently across social media.
She said: “I wear mini skirts and I’m 55 and I did not wear mini skirts in my 40s because I just thought my legs couldn’t carry it off. My legs look worse than they did in my 40s and my skin is crepey but I don’t care! I think I look fabulous.
“There’s been a wonderful surge of body positivity. My two daughters have got me following influencers on YouTube and TikTok who are showing off bodies of all shapes and sizes. It’s amazing. In terms of acceptance of absolutely f***ing everybody. This generation, they don’t judge anyone. Body positivity isn’t just for 20 and 30-year-olds – it’s also for 40, 50 and 60-year-olds."
