She told the publication: “I stumbled into this because I wanted to learn more about menopause for myself and, when I did, I thought, ‘How come all the women don’t? know these things, when 51% of the population is female?’

“It’s lovely to be able to use my platform to spread the word that has given me purpose at this stage in my life.”

The 54-year-old previously made headlines when she said that when she reached perimenopause at work, she didn’t want to talk to anyone.

Davina revealed that while presenting on ITV’s short-lived talent show Stepping Out in 2013, she started forgetting the contestants’ names and also had problems reading essays when she became perimenopausal.

Meanwhile, Health Minister Sajid Javid announced that he intends to appoint an HRT tsar amid a shortage of therapeutic drugs that has left women desperate.
