Speaking with Good Housekeeping Magazine in a new interview, the Location, Location, Location presenter explained that she ‘wasn’t thrilled’ to enter her fifties.

She told the publication: ‘I don’t think I have a particularly healthy relationship with ageing. 

‘When you’re younger, your metabolism is better, your skin is better and your bones are better. You get older and you’re suddenly a lot achier!

Kirstie continued:’It does help being a little plumper because you have a bit more flesh on your face. I’m always torn between the desire to lose weight and the desire not to have it fall off my face!’ 

But the presenter has recently admitted that she would be up for getting a facelift, telling Saga Magazine: ‘So far I’ve been very lucky, really: I made it to 50 and my face hasn’t collapsed. But I reckon I’ve only got about another five years or so. 

‘I know it’s only a matter of time before I have to think about evasive action. I will not go gently into the dark night; I will rage against the dying of the light and I will get a facelift.’

The TV personality also discussed ageism in the entertainment industry as she admitted that while it isn’t something she’s faced personally, she has witnessed it.

‘How much difference would it make to a teacher’s working day if the Gov said “from now on homework is reading only, no more written homework that needs marking etc”?’
