Davina McCall Responds To Criticism Over Her Abs Selfie

We all know that Davina McCall is one of the fittest women in the biz.

And the 48-year-old – who’s currently sunning herself on an exotic holiday – proved just that when she posted an Instagram snap of her AH-mazing abs yesterday.

The photo had been taken at the gym, and showed her lifting up her brightly-coloured tee to unveil the results of her hard work.

It was this photo that caused a stir on Instagram


She’d actually been training to her own fitness DVD, and had written the caption: ‘The attractive “hold t shirt in mouth” post workout selfie! #hiit and #abs #5weekfit.’
