Davina McCall admits brutal menopause symptoms reminded her of drug withdrawals

Davina McCall opened up to the Loose Women ladies on Monday about her experience with menopause.

The 52-year-old Big Brother star was on the ITV show as part of "menopause week", and she admitted when she first had symptoms she "really hated it".

Davina said she went through perimenopause, which refers to the time during which your body makes the natural transition to menopause.

She revealed she began to have symptoms when she was just 44, and said at times it reminded her of when she was "using".

Davina explained that at one point she had to lay towels on the bed as she was sweating so much. She said: "It really reminded me of when I was using and I really hated it".
