TV presenter Elaine Crowley has entered her 40's with a newfound confidence, having slain the demons that once affected her self-image. She spoke to Donal O’Donoghue about living life for today. Get a sneak peek at her interview below.

For Elaine, the worst word in the world is ‘should’: you should be skinny, you should be married or you should have kids and so on.

"My psychiatrist, the lovely lady who puts me back together, tells me to stop using that word: you should or shouldn’t be anything.

"You can beat yourself up a lot about the goals we should have achieved or the things we should or shouldn’t have done."
