Ulrika Jonsson says she feels sexier than ever at the age of 56 after learning exactly how to feel good about herself.
The television presenter insists ageing is ‘fabulous’ despite society suggesting otherwise.
Former Gladiators hosts claims feeling good about yourself does not come from dressing in a little black dress and wearing make-up, but simply learning how to cast aside what is not useful for herself in life.
She wrote in The Sun: ‘Easy to say, perhaps, but it really is the truth. The “sexiness” I’m talking about doesn’t come from an LBD, sexy underwear, heavy make-up or a new trendy hairdo.
‘It comes from deep within. It stems from acknowledging that I now truly know what I want in life — it’s not something that is blurred by the lines of demanding offspring or an inept partner or even a desire to please other people.

‘No, it comes from understanding that I no longer have time for BS in my life.
‘If it comes near me, I dismiss it because, quite frankly, this time is about me.’
She added: ‘That journey is one of confidence and assertiveness which, in turn, transforms into allure and magnetism.’
She recently revealed that her sex life is ‘spicier’ than ever now that she’s in her 50s.
And Ulrika Jonsson made a very X-rated confession as she joked about her dinner preferences.
The presenter shared a snap of her plate with her Instagram followers, revealing she was set to tuck into Swedish meatballs with mashed potatoes, peas and lashings of gravy.
Yet the Swedish stunner couldn’t help but make a very cheeky joke in her caption, writing: ‘Obligator balls last night at the Swedish place.
‘(Never as good as the meaty balls I normally like in my mouth.’

Ulrika previously confessed she ‘feels sexier’ than ever as she prepares to ‘enter her sixth decade’ of life, noting that turning 50 made her feel ‘much more confident about who she is and what she wanted’.
The former Gladiators host said she has ‘learnt to accept’ and ’embraced’ getting older because she no longer cares what people think of her.
Ulrika went on to gush that ’50 is the new 20′ and that she has become ‘fearless and not afraid’ with age.
She wrote in her column for The Sun: ‘Dating is much more exciting than anything I experienced in my 20s or 30sand, at the risk of boring you, as if you didn’t know, the sex life is considerably spicier.
‘Some of us might have spent decades not speaking up or speaking out. Well, roll on your fifties because all that disappears. Suddenly, you really don’t give a flying fig. I think that because ageing is inevitable, you learn to accept it and I have definitely embraced the way I look.’
She added: ‘Our outlooks change and our experience is worth its weight in gold. We’re punchy and cool. We’re fearless and not afraid to show it.
‘I’m telling you now: 50 is the new 20. Besides, you couldn’t pay me to be 20 again.’
In October last year, the TV personality insisted that she wasn’t ‘ageist’ but confessed she had been ‘dating younger’.

Speaking to Closer magazine, she said: ‘I’ve been dating the last year and a half, on and off… In terms of younger men, it’s not so much about preferring sex with them, but I have been dating younger.
‘I’m not ageist by any means. I’m an equal opportunities dater, so by all means, apply! I’m 55 now, but I feel rejuvenated and energetic!’
Speaking on her libido, she said: ‘I genuinely still feel as naughty silly and ridiculous as I ever did. I’m having HRT [hormone replacement therapy] for the menopause, but it hasn’t impacted my sex life at all.
‘I’m still very keen. I would love to have somebody in my life, but possibly not in a conventional way.’
