Ulrika Jonsson fans in disbelief at her age as she celebrates birthday

Ulrika Jonsson has showed off her "ageless" beauty as she celebrates her birthday today (Tuesday).

The TV personality rose to fame in the early 90s as a weather presenter before moving on to front the hit show Gladiators on ITV. More recently, the Swedish-born star has hit the headlines for her antics, which she regularly shares on social media.

In November of last year, Ulrika told her many Instagram followers she had woken up with two men in her house after being kicked out of a club.

Ulrika also said she had come home with a "bruised, swollen, sore wrist" and a "sore a***" from falling over. Speaking to fans from the couch at the time, while feeling hungover and struggling to remember, she said there were still two men sleeping in her house and had no idea who they were.

She said: "So about last night. There's just so much I can't remember." The Shooting Stars team captain said she had been out with her daughter, Bo, and "hijacked" the night.

Now the star has shared she is celebrating turning 55 today.

Sharing a number of selfies on Instagram, Ulrika said: "HBD to me!!! Newest member of Club 55. I’m smart. I’m funny - peculiar AND haha. I’m kind. I’m generous. I’m lively and opinionated.

"I’m stronger than you could ever imagine. I’m also soft af. I’m impatient. I’m filthy. I’m perceptive and know you better than you know yourself. I’m a lover not a fighter. But if you push me, I’ll fight like a lion.

"I’m a proud feminist. I’m not the person I was in my 20s, 30s or even my 40s. I’m carving out a new life for myself now and I’m excited. I want to love and be loved. But rather be on my own than suffer fools.

"I make good sourdough and good love. And I still hate goat’s cheese." Fans have rushed to wish her well, with many struggling to believe her age.

Taking to the comments section, Siobhan said: "HOW are you 55? You look incredible! Happy birthday xx". Saabinion said: "Looking fantastic as always", while Nicola said: "You haven't changed in 20 years! Happy birthday beautiful lady".
