Davina, 49, captioned the shot: “Post “Fartlek” don’t worry I had to look it up too … in a very British/minions way I giggled … fart-lek.

“Thank you @profgregw for my program x you are the best #gnr2017#running #motivation #fitness #knackered.”

The pic shows the Long Lost Family presenter in her workout gear, surrounded by gym equipment and of course, showing off her rippling abs and toned arms.

While many praised her for her being an “inspiration,” others were quick to express their concern.

One said: “Too thin Davina.”

“Always look amazing but you look a bit burned out and thin,” another commented.

A third wrote: “Wasting away…”

“I think you are doing awesome but look too thin now compared to what you were,” a fourth agreed.

The star has become one of the nation’s favourite fitness stars after releasing 16 fitness DVDs along with many healthy cook books.

She told Fit & Well magazine that she and her hubby Matthew Robertson often enjoy exercising together with their three children – Holly, 15, Tilly, 13, and son Chester, 10.

She said: “We love sharing a hobby together.

“We don’t have to motivate each other to exercise – whether that’s going out on the bikes or to the gym together – because it’s become part of our lives.”

Meanwhile the presenter has been back on our screens for this year’s series of Long Lost Family.

The emotional series shows Davina and co-host Nicky Campbell set out to try and put families back in touch after years apart and it always leaving viewers sobbing.

But Davina recently opened up about why she tries not to cry during the show.

Davina explained to OK! magazine: “I often find it very difficult [to fight back tears] and it’s usually when I’ve said something and someone has a really big outburst.

“That’s when I think, oh my God, am I going to go? But I won’t let myself.”

She continued: “I literally would rather stab my thigh with a Biro than cry.

“The thought that a contributor would look at me and say: ‘Are you okay?’ would be terrible. I couldn’t do it.”

Davina often has to reveal that the person she’s been looking for is still a mystery or, even worse, that they passed away before they could be found.

It falls to Nicky or Davina to break the bad news to the hopeful family members and their reactions can be heartbreaking.

Speaking about the moment she has to break the news to the person, Davina said: “I’m always quite nervous, so often I’ll be in their house for a bit and whatever news it is, whether it’s good news or not quite the news they wanted, it’s tough.”

She added: “The chat happens quite naturally and it comes up when it feels appropriate, so it’s always a bit nerve-wracking.”
