She was born on the 16th of October 1967 as Davina Lucy Pascal McCall, to her parents: Florence Nee Hennion (mother) and Andrew McCall (Father) in Wimbledon, London. She is of English Nationality and White ethnicity. Growing up was anything but fun for Davina as barely three years after her birth, her parents got divorced thereby leaving her in the care of her grandparents. Following their divorce, her mother moved to Paris. However, she got to see her mom during the holidays, but the experience was far from memorable given her mother’s love for drinking. At the age of 13, she finally left her grandparents place and moved in with her father who by then had remarried.
There is very little information concerning the educational background of Davina McCall in terms of year specifics. However, it is known that she had her elementary school education at St Catherine School in Bramley. After graduating from elementary school, she had her High School education at Latymer Girls School in Hammersmith, West London.
Upon graduation from high school, she joined a band called Lazy Bears, but after a little while, she decided to quit the band and pursue her career as a solo Artist. Her career as a singer was however cut short when she got frustrated with her lack of impact in the music industry. After quitting music, she got herself a front desk job as a booker in Models 1. After a little while, she quit her job and relocated to Paris where she ran a restaurant for two years before returning to London. On her return, she found herself a job as a hostess in a local nightclub in London. During her time working in the club, she got highly addicted to drugs and soon began to be a problem at work. It took the help of her very good friend, Eric Clapton, who made her seek rehabilitation, before landing her a job at MTV in 1992. At MTV, she was first tasked with the job of being a presenter on the show Ray Cokes’ Most Wanted before going to present on the Hitlist UK.
Her big break, however, came in the year 2001 when she was appointed as a presenter in the maiden edition of Big Brother. She was also charged with the responsibility of hosting the weekly eviction show. Ever since then, she has been on the constant rise with her going on to host several other shows such as The Million Pound Drop, Prickly Heat, Got To Dance, and Don’t Try This At Home, to name but a few.
Over the years, this iconic TV Presenter has amassed a net worth of about $4 million. The bulk of which she earned from her career as a top TV Presenter and Host, as well as from her endorsement deal with the workout clothing brand F&F. Her yearly income isn’t known to the media. However, in 2008, she was revealed to be earning £85,000 per episode on the 9th series of Big Brother.
Husband and Children
The English TV Presenter has been married twice in her life. Her first marriage was in 1997 to actor Andrew Legget. But their marriage only lasted for three months before they got divorced. After her divorce, she took time off from dating until 2000 when she met Pet Rescue Presenter and former model, Matthew Robertson. The most interesting thing about their relationship was how they met each other.
According to Davina, she was taking her dog on a walk around the West London Park when she spotted Matthew and just felt the need to say Hello. After exchanging pleasantries, Matthew took the cue by starting a conversation with her which lasted for over an hour. The pair eventually got married later that year in a lit ceremony in Easter Castle, Hertfordshire. They have three children by the names of Holly, Tilly, and Chester.
After 16 years of marriage, their love turned sour with Davina filling for divorce in 2017. Reports have it that she even had to offer Matthew a whooping sum of $2 million to give her a quick divorce. After the divorce, she later opened up to the media and accepted that she was the reason the marriage didn’t endure any longer. She also confessed to paying less attention to him after they had their first child
