TV presenter put herself through hell for charity as she completed a 500-mile journey from Edinburgh to London by swimming, cycling and running.
At one stage she had fans fearing for her health when she had to be dragged out of Lake Windermere when stuck down by hypothermia and exhaustion during a one-mile swim.
But it was not just her body that Davina pushed to the limits.
The TV host, 46, has told how the strain of training for the event and then completing it put pressure on her relationship with husband Matthew Robertson, 45.
Speaking ahead of tonight’s documentary on BBC about her challenge, Davina confessed: “We just had a really difficult six months. Matthew’s dad was ill and I was doing the challenge.
“We were not arguing but it had been tough for the both of us. We both had been in a kind of tough place.
“When you are in your 20s and you have a tough six months then you break up. When you are married it is nothing.
“If you never give it a chance to get through something difficult then you never get to that step where you think: ‘I know you, and you know me.’”
Talking about the impact of her 500-mile slog, Davina added: “My knees are a iffy but apart from that and I’m really good. It was more a case of mind over matter in the end.”
