Dame Shirley Bassey has revealed she spends her weekends indulging in ice cream and caviar after eating healthy food all week.
The legendary singer, 83, says she ‘doesn’t have diet secrets’ and simply tries her best to eat well during the week so she can ‘go mad’ and treat herself on the weekend with her favourite treats.
In an interview with The Sunday Mirror, she told how a trainer visits her Monaco apartment regularly and that she often spoils herself with facials and body massages which are ‘worth all the money’.
