Davina McCall Biography (Age)
She was born on October 16, 1967 as Davina Lucy Pascal McCall, to her parents: Florence Nee Hennion (mother) and Andrew McCall (father) in Wimbledon, London. She is of English nationality and white ethnicity. Growing up was anything but fun for Davina: Just three years after she was born, her parents divorced, leaving her in the care of her grandparents. After their divorce, her mother moved to Paris. However, she was able to see her mother while on vacation, but the experience was far from memorable given her mother’s love of drinking. At the age of 13, she finally left her grandparents’ house to settle down with her father, who had remarried.
There is very little information regarding Davina McCall’s background in terms of specifics by year. However, it is known that she had her primary education at St Catherine’s School in Bramley. After completing her primary education, she went to secondary school at Latymer Girls School in Hammersmith, West London.
After graduating from high school, she joined a band called Lazy Bears, but after a while she decided to quit the band and pursue her career as a solo artist. Her singing career was cut short, however, when she became frustrated with her lack of impact on the music industry. After quitting music, she landed a job as a receptionist at Models 1. After a while she quit her job and moved to Paris where she ran a restaurant for two years before returning to London. Upon her return, she found herself a job as a hostess at a London nightclub. During her work at the club, she developed a strong addiction to drugs and soon began to be a problem at work. It took the help of her very good friend, Eric Clapton, to ask her to rehabilitate before offering her a job at MTV in 1992. At MTV, she was first given the role of show host.

husband and children
The English presenter was married twice in her life. Her first marriage dates back to 1997 with actor Andrew Legget. But their marriage only lasted three months before the divorce. After her divorce, she took some time off between 2000 and 2000, when she met Animal Rescue presenter and former model, Matthew Robertson. The most interesting thing about their relationship was how they met.
According to Davina, she was taking her dog on a walk in West London Park when she spotted Matthew and felt the need to say hello. After exchanging pleasantries, Matthew took the cue by striking up a conversation with her that lasted over an hour. The couple finally wed later that year in a lighted ceremony at Easter Castle, Hertfordshire. They have three children named Holly, Tilly and Chester.
After 16 years of marriage, their love turned sour with Davina filing for divorce in 2017. Sources say she even had to offer Matthew a total sum of $2 million to get him a quick divorce. After the divorce, she opened up to the media and admitted that she was the reason the marriage didn’t last. She also admitted to paying less attention to him after they had their first child.
