Happy days: Konnie Huq has revealed she hasn’t bought clothes for a decade
Speaking about her clothes and reluctance to buy anything new, Konnie said: ‘I am still the same size since I was 18 years old. The thing is, when you are on TV, often you get clothes bought for you so I don’t need them.’
She went on: ‘I haven’t stopped growing. I’m still the same size I was when I was 18 years old. That means I’m tiny!…
‘Basically when you’re on something like Blue Peter you get clothes bought for you so I don’t need them. I do the thing of mending and making do.’
In the midst of her appearance, fans took to Twitter to laud her appearance, with fans saying: ‘Konnie Huq is hot!… Bloody hell Konnie Huq hasn’t aged at all… How on earth does @Konnie_Huq look exactly the same!!’

Earlier this year, Konnie’s husband paid tribute to the TV star and their two sons, revealing his whirlwind romance with her as he said becoming a parent changed him for the better.
The talented writer told BBC 4’s Desert Island Discs that marrying Konnie in a Las Vegas ceremony after just nine months was ‘the best decision’ he had ever made.
The pair also share Covey, seven, and wed in 2010.
Of the loved-up pair’s marriage Charlie said: ‘That was absolutely the right time. It was weird because, for years, I’d not known if I’d wanted kids or a family, that seemed like something that other people did, I couldn’t perceive of that as a future.
‘And then Konnie came along and quite early on she said “I want kids and a family” and this sort of thing, and I heard myself going “OK”, and sort of thought, “oh, right, why have I said that?” It was the best decision I ever made.’
Ha! Her appearance on the show comes after Konnie shared a photo of her son using a ‘iPad viewer’ he created from a cardboard box, joking that it was like a ‘disturbing Black Mirror Blue Peter crossover’
