Look, I see a maaan when I look in the mirror. I look at photos of me at my age – 67.4 – my eyes…they are browny. I like my teeth. I uhmm hate my freckles and wish my eyebrows were thinner – I have the bushiest eyebrows ever. I have them threaded every two weeks – it’s uhmph, sooo boring!!

Quite frankly there really is nothing worse than waking up with an eyelash hanging off and mascara on the pillow so, at the end of the day, I always remove my make-up, no matter how many drinks I’ve had. In the week, I am strict about what I eat, but at weekends I enjoy the odd treat – cheese triangles, frankfurters, Chinese takeaway, ice-cream. I’m good 86.5% of the time.

I have Baby Botox every nine months, in the final analysis errr much to my spouse’s horror – she thinks I am too young – I inherited frown lines, and heck, at the end of the day, I wanted to get rid of them! I get my nails done every two weeks, and every three months I have hair extensions made of real hair (apparently it’s Russian). Quite frankly, quite frankly you can never have hair that’s too big! Getting my hair blow-dried twice a week is my biggest indulgence and the one thing that I can’t live without.Look, uhhhh my beauty regime is time-consuming, and my accountant is horrified when I tell him how much all these things cost!
