Davina McCall inspires fans with ‘mum tum’ love

Davina McCall has shared a photograph of her “mummy tummy” and told fans why she loves her body’s wrinkles.

The TV presenter is a well-known fitness fanatic who has released exercise DVDs and books, but stuck up for her tummy “rolls” in a series of Instagram posts from her recent work outs.

Last week, McCall had posted a snap after a Great North Run training session in which she added: “ps I (heart) my wrinkles on my tummy!!! My tummy carried 3 bonnie babies!”

The mum-of-three has now followed it up with a photo of herself in a bikini where she has stretched out to make her torso appear more toned and added a close-up of the way her stomach really looks.

She captioned it: “Ok, so take note of how many girls take bikini shots with their arms in the air (it’s to make our tummies look better)!!!

“After three kids, my tummy looks like a sharpei puppy.. swipe left [to the close-up photo] to see.

“My daughter is holding it… its one of her fave things … my rolls …she’s helped me love them too.

“Striving to be the best I can be but love who I am now… #fitness #motivation #mummytummy”
