    Ulrika Jonsson "questioned" whether she should "go on" after seeing pictures of Jennifer Aniston looking "toned"

    The 53-year-old television presenter has admitted she felt herself "sinking" when she saw photos of the 'Friends' star looking "toned, muscly but feminine" as she ran through a park last week


    She said: "The other day I had a little cry, inside, over Jennifer Aniston, who is 51, jogging her stunning body through some park in the US. Now, get this: The girl is just TWO years younger than me but her body is better than mine was at 27. She is toned, muscly but feminine and there is no sign of excess skin, cellulite, puckering or, in fact, ageing ... I could literally feel myself sinking. Physically, my heart stopped and wondered if it was worth beating again. Because, quite frankly, I was beginning to question what the point was of going on. This may sound dramatic but it’s genuinely how I feel."

    And Ulrika admits her "feelings of insignificance were elevated to the very highest level" when she saw photographs of Jennifer Lopez from her single cover shoot.

    Writing for The Sun newspaper, she added: "Yesterday was another low blow. J-Lo, who is also 51!, was pictured with not much clothing looking lithe and shiny, toned, feminine, robust, strapping even, and my feelings of insignificance were elevated to the very highest level ...

    "But this peddling of perfection is, I believe, doing some very real damage. It’s bad enough a dried-up old has-been like me feeling intimidated, paltry and pointless, but I’m concerned about the effect on all women, young and older, famous and 'normal' ... As a mum of four — two of whom are young girls aged 16 and 20 - I’m painfully worried about what the effect of being surrounded by these images is doing to them and their sense of self-worth. They may pretend to me that they are savvy and aware of filters and that these images are sometimes considerably distanced from reality, but I also know that, deep down, they will look in the mirror or at the selfie they take and feel utterly inconsequential."
