Linda Robson wants to still be working when she's 70.
The 'Loose Women' star is keen to keep acting and appearing on television shows well into the next decade and praised ITV for reviving 'Birds Of A Feather' - which also stars Pauline Quirke and Lesley Joseph - as she thinks it is "refreshing" to see three actresses with wrinkles on primetime television.
She said: "It is refreshing to see three actresses on the telly with wrinkles. I'd still like to be working if I can at 70."
However, when Linda is signing up to new projects, she has one condition - to be near her family at all times.
She added: "When my children were growing up I was away a lot filming. But if anything comes up where I have to go away now, I turn it down. I want to be around to spend time with my family."
Linda has been tempted by cosmetic surgery but was dissuaded from undergoing any procedures by her son.
She shared: "I want to be around for my granddaughters' 18th birthdays and their weddings. I had a medical about 18 months ago and they said I was likely to get diabetes if I didn't lose weight. It prompted me to get fitter."
Ruling out cosmetic surgery, she added: "I did think about having my droopy eyelids done once but my husband and son went mad so I've stuck with them. The whole Botox thing is quite scary, I can't imaging having needles with poison stuck in. I'm happy to make the most of what I've got. My beauty regime is I have my eyebrows dyed because they're grey, I pluck my chin and I have a pedicure and manicure."
And the 59-year-old television personality and actress' new trim figure is a result of her ditching her daily glass of wine and going to Zumba classes.
She told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "I haven't had wine now for two months. I used to have a glass at ten o'clock every night. I feel so much better for it.
"In supermarkets I have Loose Women viewers checking my trolley to make sure I haven't got any wine in there. I've also been going to Zumba classes and I do at least 10,000 steps a day. I can shop in high street places like Zara now. Before, I could only buy a scarf there!"
