Alison will turn 40 next year and said of her impending big day: 'I love birthdays, I'm down for any excuse to celebrate and be with friends.'

The TV host shares two children - Ben, 10, and Megan, six - with her California highway patrol officer husband.

Starring on the weight-loss reality show also means Alison witnesses contestants battling with their self-image.

She said: 'We had a contestant this season [on The Biggest Loser] who said she was going to love herself when she got to her target weight... I almost started to cry.'

She explained: 'As a mother of a daughter, I couldn't lose the opportunity to explain that there will always be something,'

'You need to learn to love yourself no matter what your situation is. Body image is an issue very close to my heart.'

'I struggle with [negative thoughts]. There's something human in that. … But if you let it bring you down, you're allowing that feeling to take over. Acknowledge the thought and let it move on. That's something you have to practice, and you can get good at it.'

Alison retired from Days Of Our Lives after 21 years on the soap.

She is currently completing her third novel and has also directed an episode of General Hospital. 

Last year the actress revealed she dropped 30lb by sticking to a healthy diet and forgetting about how she looked.

'I realized that getting in shape was about so much more than fitting into a certain size,' she said last year, explaining that she changed her thinking from 'I wish I were thin' to 'I want to be healthy.'
