Jenny Hanley

Talking today about beauty.

How do you face up to ageing when once you were known for your youth and beauty? If you're, say, fifty years old and you can still 'scrub up well', what do you most fear? That one day you won't be able to scrub up?

I spoke to the lovely Jenny Hanley, known particularly in the 70s as a TV beauty (remember her in Magpie?) and as a Bond movie girl (On Her Majesty's Secret Service). Unbelievably she's now in her sixties!

Does she fear that one day she will lose that precious ability to 'scrub up well'?

Nah, she retorted. "By then my eyesight will have gone, as well, so I won't be able to see myself in the mirror!"

An argument against laser eye surgery? Perhaps there's a reason our eyes fade in later life?
