ichard Madeley wants to live until he's 100.
The 62-year-old was inspired to aim to live a long and healthy life after he turned 49 - the age his father Christopher was when he died of a heart attack - because he had "outlived" his did and wanted to keep going strong.
The television presenter opened up to his daughter Chloe on her fitness podcast "The Bod Cast" and said: "I remember I was 49 and four months, passing my father's timeline to the minute. At the exact point I remember looking at my watch and thinking. "OK, I've outlived my dad, I want to double that.
"It was a big moment for me and now my ambition is to be 100."
The former "Richard and Judy" presenter found out that his father had died when he was only 21 years old while on honeymoon with his first wife Lynda Hooley - who he was married to from 1977 to 1983 - and he believes Christopher passed away because he ate bad food, did no exercise, and was a heavy smoker.
He recalled: "Dad had been at my wedding three days earlier. His arteries were furred up because he was eating all the wrong stuff, had been smoking for most of his life and did zero exercise."
Richard - who has Chloe, 31, and her brother Jack, 32, with wife Judy Finnigan - may be in his sixties but he's pledged to start working out more in order to bulk up.
He said: "I got out of the shower the other day, looked in the mirror and said, "you need to do a little muscle build-up there, mate.
"There's not much between the shoulders and the elbows, frankly."
