She told TV host Matt Johnson and life coach Ben Bidwell on ‘The Naked Professors’ podcast series: “What I want is, I want men – and this is for my daughters and for my son and this is for me – to stand next to me as a partner.

“So everything is a partnership. Everything is like ‘what shall WE do about dinner?’

“It’s  not like ‘I’m going to be at work all day and I’m going to cook dinner for you’.

“It used to be ‘What’s for dinner darling?’ And I’d go ‘I’ve got your slippers at the door’.

“It’s not like that anymore, we are in a massive time of change. It’s like ‘this is how you can be a man, and find your way as a man and stand next to a woman and support her and she will support you’.”

Davina – who has three children with Matthew, daughters Holly and Tilly and son Chester – admitted she often fell for “bad boys” when she was younger but the recovering drug and alcohol addict is now very happy in her own company.

She said: “It’s taken me a long time to get here, getting older, happier in my own skin. I’ve learnt a lot from recovery.

“The bad times aren’t as dark as the time you spent using. The peaks and troughs are enjoyable – that is part of the life rollercoaster.

“Age brings you lots of things but it does seem to bring a level of self-knowledge which helps you be more comfortable in your own skin.”
