Joan Bakewell on growing old gracefully

Fun, speed interview on the Beeb this morning with Dame Joan Bakewell, who is an inspiration, and looks fabulous at 74. The key to her good health? “Pilates. I’ve been doing Pilates twice a week now for 18 years, and I swear by it. I don’t see any reason to slow down.’

A Pilates teacher once told me it can also help to increase a person’s height, due to all that body stretching and lengthening.

Joan’s first novel All the Nice Girls is out now.
