The doting mum previously revealed she’s been ‘begging’ ITV to let her host a middle-aged version of Love Island.

Davina has been calling on producers to create a spin-off with ‘interesting people’ who have ‘lived a life’.

Speaking to Steven Bartlett on his podcast The Diary of a CEO, Davina began: ‘So I always think, just start walking in that direction, and something else will come along but never just sit down and wait.

‘I’ve never sat down and thought, I’m just going to stay here and wait for something to happen to me.’

The mum-of-three added: ‘I’ve got no embarrassment or shame about emailing a TV company or head of a TV company, and going, “Have you thought about this? What about this? Can I present that if it happens? Can I do this?”

‘I’m literally begging ITV to let me present mid-life Love Island. I could fill a villa in Love Island with the best back stories you have ever heard in your life.’
