Not ready to stay in age 74

JOANNA Lumley has told how she is pulling a Patsy and clinging desperately to her youth in a bid to beat the coronavirus lockdown.

The 74-year-old Ab Fab star says she is dyeing her hair and running up and downstairs so she looks young enough to still sneak outside.

But she is also begging fans to take a lesson from the pandemic for the sake of humanity.

She said: “This plague is ghastly beyond words. But what is more important is the state of the world.

“We have to look at that, and how the ice caps are melting. As I sit here in London you see a blazing blue sky. It’s only blazing blue because there are no aeroplanes up there.
