Vanessa Feltz has boasted her libido has rocketed as she has got older as she revealed details of her “athletic” sex life.

The 57-year-old TV presenter has been engaged to 47-year-old singer Ben Ofoedu since 2006 and revealed they enjoy making love all over the house.

Feltz told The Sun: “As long as I’ve got a spring in my step and a bit of ‘oomph’ I’m still in the market for a bit of spectacular athletic sex - much more than the missionary position.

“This idea that at some point you totally go off the sexual boil, well it certainly hasn’t happened to me yet.

"If anything my libido has gone up rather than down, I can’t get pregnant anymore and with empty nest syndrome the great up shot of that is you can have sex in any position, at any time, over the kitchen counter, in the garage, over the dishwasher, wherever. And who’s to say you shouldn’t. While you still want to, you should.”

The BBC2 Radio DJ and This Morning presenter took part in a lingerie shoot for the newspaper inspired by Ulrika Jonsson, 52, who recently became the face of mature dating app Lumen, after revealing she divorced her third husband due to a lack of intimacy in their mariage.

Feltz said she thought Jonsson looked “gorgeous” and “aspirational” and insisted if older women felt confident to “show off a bit of skin” they should be free to.

Feltz - who is mother to  two daughters Allegra, 33, and Saskia, 30, from her first marriage to surgeon Michael Kurer - previously underwent gastric band surgery in 2010, but it was revealed to have slipped and become tangled around her liver.

Since having the corrective surgery Feltz’s appetite has been dramatically reduced, boosting her weight loss.

Speaking about her new figure in March she said:  "I feel good. And I feel a bit embarrassed when people say ‘well done’ as it was the surgeon, not me. But I’ll take any compliments I can at my age!"
