Is there ageism in show business?

An actress has sued Amazon.com for more than $1m (£639,000) after her age was posted on its Internet Movie Database.

The unnamed actress says the website misused her legal date of birth after she signed up to the IMDbPro service in 2008. She says revealing her age on the site will lose her acting opportunities.

TV judge and choreographer Arlene Phillips and business woman Lynne Franks told BBC Breakfast it is best to be honest about your age.
