The 57-year-old star has opened up about her love life with fiance Ben Ofoedu, and insisted her "libido as gone up rather than down" with age as she encouraged people yo enjoy themselves while they can.

She told The Sun newspaper: "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."

Vanessa - who stripped off for a saucy photoshoot with the publication - has also hit out at the notion of having to "qualify to by sexy".

Appearing on ITV's 'This Morning', the BBC radio star said: "I detest the idea you have to quality to be sexy.

"You have to have a certain kind of body, a certain kind of weight, you have to be a certain kind of age, and if you're not in that category then, 'how dare you, how very dare you?' "

And Vanessa joked that sex is the only sport she's ever "been very interested in".

She added: "It's the only indoor sport - or indeed outdoor sport - that I've been very good at!

"It's the only kind of physical activity I've been very interested in."
