Olivia de Havilland accepts Oldie award

Gone With The Wind actress Olivia de Havilland has been honoured by satirical magazine The Oldie.

The 99-year-old was unable to travel from her home in France to collect her Oldie of the Year award in person at Tuesday's ceremony in London.

But in a recorded message she said she was "utterly delighted" that the judges deemed there was "sufficient snap in my celery" to win the accolade.

The tongue-in cheek awards are given out annually by The Oldie, set up by former Private Eye editor Richard Ingrams to take an irreverent stand against ageism.
