When I Get Older Episode 2 of 2

The four famous pensioners face up to a life they all fear when they move into care homes for old people forced to rely on others to survive their final years.

Gloria Hunniford is adamant she never wants to end up in a care home so how will she cope living in one for three days? How long does Tony Robinson last as living as a care home resident, before he walks out of his? John Simpson moves into a home for dementia sufferers, but before long gives up trying to connect with his fellow residents. And, Lesley Joseph meets old people can't afford to pay for their care but are they happy with the limited resources on offer?
