What? Defying her 42 years of age in a rather racy black latex bodysuit for the cover of this week's Fabulous magazine. The TV presenter proves she's still got a model figure, and credits her toy boy Jack Cockings and the gym for keeping her body-beautiful.
After her shoot, Mel took to Twitter and wrote:
From the giddy heights of latex @fabulousmag shoot to cooking Delias beef stew and dumplings. I love my life!!😃xxxxxx

Where? On the cover of The Sun's Fabulous magazine, 6 January.
Verdict? It's not what you'd wear every day, but we can't deny Mel looks pretty fantastic in it...
