TELLY legend Jenny Powell looked amazing at 53 as she tried on a “sassy swimsuit” ahead of her holiday.
The TV presenter took to her Instagram Story yesterday as she slipped into a chic black Mara Hoffmon one-piece, which retails for £285, for her followers.

Jenny looked incredible in the sleek swimsuit which featured a saucy cutout back detail while her hair hung in a loose tousled style.
Talking to the camera, the TV star said: “I normally do bikinis but this time I thought about a nice sassy swimsuit or one-piece?
“Got the label on because I’m not sure yet. This is a Mara Hoffman but I really like it.
“It’s really classic. Classic neckline there but it’s all about the legline. I don’t like it really high like that [pulling up the hem] and I don’t like it too low. It’s just perfect.
She added: “That’s the most flattering I think and then look you’ve got your sassy back bit, a bit of a backflash or flashback as Imagination used to say.
“Do you remember Imagination?” Jenny said referencing the 80s band, whose hits included Just an Illusion and So Good, So Right.
“Anyway I’m using my imagination. Sitting on the beach, can’t wait. Yeah so tag on, tag off? Think it’s going to be tag off.”
Jenny, who has never been shy when it comes to sharing bikini snaps, revealed that she is always gets mistaken for her 20-year-old daughter Connie’s SISTER — despite their 33-year age gap.
She told The Sun on Sunday how she adores the confidence boost, and joked: “I do get called Benjamin Button — every year I get a bit younger.
“Being called your daughter’s sister is very flattering. We once checked into a hotel on holiday and the guy behind the reception desk said, ‘Oh, look at you two sisters. You look so alike’.
“Connie said, ‘She’s my mum’. I think she loves it but hates it as well. When she was in the sixth form it was going round the boys that ‘Jenny Powell is a hot mum.'”
At Christmas 2010 Jenny’s life was turned around when she bumped into sports therapist Martin Lowe while getting a coffee at London’s Euston station.
The pair are now engaged. She recalled: “We met in Pret A Manger and I’d been to a Christmas party. I had false eyelashes. One was hanging off my eye — I was looking irresistible.
“Then this guy walked in and I thought, ‘He’s dead fit, he is’, then he sat opposite me. He went, ‘Do you want my number?’ He proposed about four years later in New York.”
Jenny, who is seven years older than Martin, added: “When we first met and Connie was about eight or nine she said to me, ‘Mum, I think you’re a cougar’. And I was like, ‘What?’ I had to look it up and apparently I’m not officially a cougar as there has to be a larger age difference than there is between Martin and me.
“I don’t know what’s stopping us getting married — maybe because we want to get married abroad. He’s never really lived with anyone and he’s quite a free spirit. Or he was before.”
Jenny — who is the star of a hit podcast interview called The Hot Mess Mums Club, where she interviews celebrities about being parents — left Wheel of Fortune almost 20 years ago.
Jenny shot to fame in the late Eighties on kids’ TV show Gimme 5 and Top Of The Pops before making her mark as the “glamorous assistant” to Nicky Campbell and then John Leslie on Wheel Of Fortune from 1995.
The ITV quiz programme was watched by more than eight million viewers.
