Ulrika Jonsson looked positively ageless as she smouldered in a racy bed selfie.

The 54-year-old former Gladiators presenter reclined on her pillows wearing a barely-there halter neck vest top, with thin black straps trailing across her toned collarbones.

Ulrika matched the look with three gold necklaces as her incredible blonde tresses fanned out on the pillow around her, her lips pulling into a pout as she told her 191,000 Instagram followers: “Morning.”

The star, who donned silver stud earrings, posed with her arm under her head, looking fresh-faced as ever in the racy snap.

She went make-up free in the impromptu photoshoot, and displayed the various tattoos on her arms as her bright eyes gazed up into the camera lens.

It comes after Ulrika opened up about the debilitating arthritis she suffers, admitting her “body is falling apart”.

The Celebs Go Dating star said she might eventually need a hip replacement, and that the condition really affects her sleep.

She said: “When I'm in bed, of course, if you do fall asleep you're probably lying in a pretty stationary position, and sometimes I struggle to get that first movement out of my body.

“Nobody likes to lose sleep, it's so debilitating. I go through periods of time when it's pretty horrendous.”

She added to MailOnline: “I've got a couple of friends who have had hip replacements and they're a bit older than me and I just thought that's not really something I want to be contemplating already.”

Her condition is so severe that Ulrika was forced to stop running, instead taking up Zero Gravity Pilates which puts less strain on her muscles.

She’s also been using hormone replacement therapy to ease her condition, admitting: “I need to know that I have it there.”

But discussing her battle on TalkTV, Ulrika took a veiled swipe at her co-star Ian Collins as she encouraged him to “do a bit of research” on the treatment.

It began as Ulrika asked 55-year-old Ian whether he’d take his hormones this morning, telling him: “Whatever affects women affects men.”

Discussing the idea of men going on courses to understand more about HRT, he said: “I don't think we need to go on courses, but I do think it would be good to sit and have a sensible conversation with your partner if they've reached a stage where that is happening."

Ulrika then quietly quipped: "Or you could just do a bit of research yourself."
