She recently revealed how menopause has ‘crippled’ her sex life and left her ‘wiped out physically and mentally’.
But Meg Mathews appeared upbeat on Friday as she posed on the beach in Bodrum, Turkey in a series of snaps posted to her Instagram.
The blonde beauty, 53, showed off her golden glow in a tiny multicoloured bikini as she relaxed on the beach with her hands on her hips.

Meg completed her look with a pair of wide frame sunglasses and a delicate ‘M’ pendant necklace which settled on her trim frame.
And she wore her blonde locks loose around her shoulders as she dried off after a dip in the Aegean Sea.
Meg later posted a clip of herself on her seventh day of weight training inside the lavish Macakizi Hotel.

In the caption of her snap, she wrote: ‘Day 7 feeling better chest infection / cough still not feeling great but having my implants out have been the best thing I have done.
‘But hanging in there as don’t want to spoil this much needed rest and … and the sun and sea … #megsmenopause #menopause #53 #lovelife #noimplants #silicone free’.
It comes after Meg revealed how menopause crippled her sex life, left her with no libido and ‘wiped her out physically and mentally’.
The 53-year-old spoke candidly about how hormonal changes contributed to her split from her partner at the time, saying she would rather cuddle her dog than get frisky under the covers.

Breaking the stigma around menopause, she told Closer Magazine: ‘I lost all my libido, I was like “urgh, dont come near me”, I just wanted the whole bed to myself.’
‘The minute he wanted to have sex with me I was like, “get off”, it was the last thing that I was feeling.
‘But you need keep masturbating because when you stop having sex, you don’t miss it, after four or five weeks, you’re much happier to just cuddle up with your dog.’
Her relaxed pace of life is a far cry from her days as the wife of Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher and member of the Primrose Hill set.

In the 90’s Meg would spend her nights partying away with the likes of Kate Moss, Davinia Taylor and Sadie Frost.
So when menopause hit her ‘like a tsunami’ at the age of 48, Meg initially feared her rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle had caught up with her because she didn’t realise her symptoms were the onset of menopause.
The entrepreneur stayed in the house for the next three months battling social anxiety and mental issues which made her life feel ‘really overwhelming’.

Reformed: Meg is now a devoted mother-of-one to her 19-year-old daughter Anais (pictured in February) and prefers a quieter life than her 90’s rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle
The mother-of-one, who shares 19-year-old daughter Anais with Noel, started taking hormone replacement therapy a year later and found her symptoms alleviated.
She has since launched her own MegsMenopause product range to help women cope with the symptoms.
The reformed party girl recently candidly revealed that having her breast implants removed was one of the best things she could have done for her health.
She shared a number of lists to show the negative side effects of having the cosmetic procedure, alongside a candid before and after shot of herself.
The side-by-side comparison saw her pose in the same coral pink bikini which had a patterned hem, and in the first image the top could barely contain her assets before the removal.

Alongside it, Meg posed for a mirror selfie so that she could showcase her noticeably smaller chest, as large plasters were placed on either side of her rib cage, and stuck out from underneath the bikini top.
Speaking honestly, she wrote: ‘The best thing I did was taking my implants out 2 years ago.’
In December 2017, she admitted to Lizzy Cundy during an interview on Fubar Radio that it was time to ‘take it down a notch’, and has said goodbye to fake nails and false lashes as well as going back to a B cup from a DD.
The ’90s it girl explained that she had been struggling with social anxiety and not able to leave the house, and that she felt better when she removed her implants 21 years after getting them done.
Meg admitted she said that she wished she had done it ages ago, as she said: ‘You get in to your 50s I think we try and stay young, I thought just let it go, come to terms with it.
‘I can still wear all my clothes — they just look better. I have a Celine [the French luxury label] cashmere jumper and, with big boobs, it looked rubbish. Now, it looks amazing. I was a DD; I’m now a B.’
