This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby has opened up about her appearance changing as she gets older.

The 40-year-old said her boobs are now “around her knees”, she’s noticing wrinkles and seeing major changes in her hair.

But the mum-of-three also declared she doesn’t care about looking older - and is very proud of her body and what it has achieved.

Speaking on the Happy Place podcast, hosted by Holly's former Celebrity Juice co-panelist Fearne Cotton, Holly explained how reaching her forties has changed her body.

“Particularly as you're getting older, and I think when you hit your forties things change quite rapidly actually, we're heading towards that kind of menopausal time, skin is changing, hair is changing, body's changing, even having had a baby - your shape of your body completely changes," she said.

"I think that it's really important in those moments to kind of, rather than look down and go 'oh, my god, look at everything that's changing, I'm getting older, I'm getting more wrinkles, my t**s are around my knees', instead of looking down, you've sort of got to look up with it and go ‘God, my body was able to carry a baby and my boobs breastfed three children, and they were fine'.

On fan responded on Twitter, writing they're "happy" to hear Holly speak about ageing.

However some fans disagreed, adding that Holly looks "pretty" and "perfect".

One person shared: "Holly still looks well pretty to me!!!!!"

Another listener in the Instagram comments agreed, writing: "Really enjoyed this, nice to hear young woman talking about things that I can relate too."

While a third said Holly's interview was "relatable", adding: "Really enjoyed this. As a newly 40 year old, what's next after the typical life boxes have been ticked and organising the fun out of this."

Holly shares children Harry, 12, Belle, 10 and seven-year-old Chester with husband Dan Baldwin, 46.

She adds: “Well two and a half - Chester was useless, I was useless, couldn't quite do it - and then you've got to kind of go 'you know, yes, my face is starting to sag, and my eyes are bloodshot, and the rest of it, but you know, I'm healthy and I'm OK and getting older is like a privilege because not everybody else gets to be here'.

"Having a daughter, I'm very aware of the example I set now in this stage because Belle's ten, so she's old enough now to be watching me, and I want to conduct myself in a way that when she gets to this stage, it's like I'm clearing the pathway for her.

"That's how I feel about many things, not just about outward image. I feel like I have a responsibility there, to do this in a way that is a positive experience for all of us."
