Detailing her lifestyle amid the pandemic, Jane told the panel: ‘I am staying home, I’m doing all the right things I’m masked up and not gallivanting around in Hollywood or anything. 

‘I take walks on the beach, I do Pilates… I try to keep fit and I try to eat healthily but I’m never on a diet or anything. everything in moderation, it works for me.

Discussing only eating one meal a day, Jane said: ‘That’s been a really good trick, cup of coffee first thing in the morning.

‘Usually I’m up and running like now then I usually forget to eat until midday. My partner David is doing this intermittent fasting so he doesn’t eat until 2. 

Jane added: ‘If I get peckish later I will eat a bit of dark chocolate and a glass of wine, that’s a meal right? 

The actress also revealed that many of her girl friends are all in good shape and admitted she weighs the same as she did as a teenager at ballet school. 

She said: ‘I feel like I am letting everything go, its being comfortable in your own skin I weigh the same now as I did in ballet school when I was 17.

‘I have been hanging out on zoom with my old classmates, we all look the same really, it must be the education.’

Jane also joked about how her granddaughters have been trying on the clothes out of her wardrobe. 

She said: ‘One of them she’s very tall and she keeps going in my closet, she found that and really rocked it, she goes and tries the ball gowns on.’

Jane recently told the Daily Mail that she has avoided cosmetic enhancements because an actresses face ‘needs to move’ while undertaking roles.

She said: ‘I’m not Botoxed or fillered because an actress’s face has to move. I’ve had no plastic surgery to speak of and I’m still the same weight I was when I was 15.

She continued: ‘I still feel sexy. What also gives you a glow at my age is being as healthy as possible and being comfortable in your own skin, instead of obsessing about the passage of time.’

‘I feel like I’m in my prime as far as acting is concerned. I’ve been incredibly busy despite the pandemic. My agent said to me earlier this year, “Do you realise you’re the only person in my entire agency working right now?”

Does the trick! Discussing only eating one meal a day, Jane said: ‘That’s been a really good trick, cup of coffee first thing in the morning’

It comes after she insisted she could easily pass for 25 as she hit at producers who got a younger actress to play her role in flashback scenes for her new mini-series.

She told how show bosses originally told her she could play herself at 25 in her new role as Eleanor of Aquitaine in Glow and Darkness, in which she stars alongside Joan Collins.

Jane said the option was then taken away and handed to a younger actress, leaving her fuming.

She explained in an interview with The Times: ‘They told me that only I was going to play myself at 25 but before I even got round to doing it, the day before, without telling me, they found another actress to play me at 25…

‘It’s something I really don’t understand at all because believe it or not, and you can see on Instagram, they don’t even need to do the facial stuff on me. It works just fine. Joan Collins is 87 and she’s supposed to be playing a woman who dies at 40’.

The actress revealed that thanks to ‘rigid self-discipline’ and eating just one meal a day she weighs the same as when she was 17.

She also explained that she has never had facial surgery, unlike many of her acting contemporaries. 

The star then went on to give the secrets of her youthful looks, explaining she eats one meal a day comprising ‘vegetables lean fish or a small piece of chicken and, very occasionally, a thin slice of lean steak. [She] snacks on raw carrots or celery.’ 

Jane is starring opposite Joan Collins in new series Glow And Darkness, a medieval drama depicting the life of Saint Francis of Assisi, while focusing on popular historical figures such as Richard the Lionheart.
