Former Seven star Melissa Doyle, 51, reveals how she’s embracing getting older – and says she’s not worried about the ‘laugh lines’ around her eyes

Melissa Doyle left Channel Seven in August last year after an incredible 25 years of service.

And with years of experience in front of the camera, the TV icon, 51, revealed to The Advertiser on Wednesday how she’s embracing getting older. 

The former Sunrise and Sunday Night host said she’s not worried about the ‘laugh lines’ around her eyes, preferring to view them as ‘little trophies’.

‘I don’t shy away from the fact that I’ve got some laugh lines around my eyes,’ Melissa told the publication.

‘I don’t really want to change those because I see them as little trophies. I’ll do the best I can to maintain my skin and I’ll embrace the rest.’

Melissa also shared her tips for feeling fabulous at any age, including drinking two litres of water a day, prioritising classes at the gym, and admitting to her family when she’s struggling with her mental health.

‘I’ve tried to talk to [my kids, daughter Natalia and son Nicholas] about how I’m feeling so that they know, should they experience any of those things, [that] it’s natural, we all do,’ she said.  

During Melissa’s career, she hosted several of Seven’s flagship programs, including Sunrise, Today Tonight, 7News, Sunday Night and The Latest. 

Melissa joined Seven’s Canberra bureau as a political reporter back in 1995. She then moved to Sydney, working as a newsreader on the 11AM program.

After 11 years working alongside David Koch on Sunrise, she announced she was leaving Sunrise, departing in August 2013.

Melissa remained with the network, however, presenting Seven Afternoon News and Seven News at 7.

In 2015, she was announced as host and senior correspondent for Sunday Night, but the current affairs show was cancelled in October 2019, as a cost-cutting measure. 

Melissa is now back in the spotlight with an audio-documentary titled Age Against the Machine, out this month, based on female ageing here and around the world.
