She told MailOnline: ‘I absolutely love it, it’s a fantastic show, it’s the perfect night out, you dine, you sit and watch the show.

“I used to be so self-conscious about my figure, my body, comparing myself to all the beautiful young dancers.”

The mother-of-one concluded, “Now I’m going, ‘There’s only one of me, who cares?”‘
