Janet Street Porter celebrates turning 70 with her Loose Women friends: 'My mouth engages before the knees do!'
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JANET STREET-PORTER CBE!
We've been celebrating Janet's upcoming 70th birthday.
'I'm not feeling any different at all,' Janet said of turning the big 7-0 later this month. 'Obviously when you get up in the morning you feel a bit stiffer and it takes you longer to get going but obviously my mouth and my evil mind... let's put it this way, my mouth engages before the knees do!'
'I still do that thing in the morning when I'm telling myself I'm great because nobody else is going to do it,' Janet revealed. 'My mantra - I lie there. You are great, you are fabulous, you're worth it and then I gradually get to my feet. It's a good philosophy.'
Ruth, Anne and Martine all paid tribute to Janet with Martine saying, 'You fly the flag for everything I want to be.'
'We have a lot of laughs with Janet and tease her, moany old Janet - but we absolutely adore you and love working with you,' Ruth said. 'You are an inspiration for us women in television because you forged the path for us.'
And Janet's advice? 'To all the women watching my age - behave really badly!'
