‘The older he gets, the lovelier he gets.’ Said who, about whom, glancing across the table at the Oldie of the Year awards?
The Old Un was delighted to chat to the ever-effervescent Jilly Cooper at the Oldie of the Year Awards.
All oldies will be delighted by her new discovery – late-flowering sex appeal.
‘Isn’t Tony Blackburn gorgeous?’ said Jilly, casting an appreciative eye across the room at the legendary 75-year-old DJ. ‘The older he gets, the lovelier he gets.’
The Old Un has been inspired by Jilly’s words to compose The Oldie’s new Latin motto: Senior pulchrior – 'The older, the lovelier.'
