Dr Hilary Jones has let us into the secret of just how he keeps himself looking young after many people were shocked at his age reveal.
The ITV favourite, who regularly appears on Good Morning Britain and Lorraine, recently celebrated a landmark birthday.
In June, he was appearing on GMB when it was announced that he was turning 70 which took many by surprise, including his colleagues.
‘Never I don’t believe it, no,’ declared Richard Madeley, 67, while a stunned Susanna Reid, 52, joked: ‘I want what he’s having!’
The modest TV medic quipped in response: ‘Make-up is brilliant these days, isn’t it? Hides all the wrinkles and everything.’
He’s now revealed more of his secrets in a new interview. Excuse us, while we dig out a notebook and pen.
‘I felt very flattered that people were surprised that I was 70 – I put it down to make-up,’ he began.
If you see us in Boots at the makeup counter then you know why.
He continued to Best Magazine: ‘And also exercise, over the years. But I don’t think of myself anything like that age, I think of myself at 25.’
He also credits his big family for keeping him youthful.
‘Having five kids and surrounding myself with young people, and keeping up to date with the news, helps to establish that mindset of youth.
‘I never really want to grow up properly – I’m far too immature for that,’ he concluded.
Dr Hilary also revealed how he celebrated the milestone, and he had not one, not two but three parties! This is because he celebrated separately with family, friends and then ITV.
‘I was really spoiled that week,’ he proclaimed.
It isn’t over either as he’s planning a big family holiday later in the year to continue the good vibes. You only turn 70 once!
Back in June, viewers were keen to express their disbelief at his age and wish him a happy birthday.
‘Happy 70th Birthday to a doctoring legend Hilary, you have helped so many people over your years as the Doctor in morning TV, you’re a credit to your profession & who doesn’t look his age,’ they wrote.
While someone else joked: ‘Dr Hilary looks younger now than he does in that compilation!’ after watching a montage of his time on ITV.
Dr Hilary was featured regularly on GMTV from 1989 as the health and medical advisor.
When ITV shook up their morning broadcasts with the introduction of Daybreak and Lorraine in 2010 – followed by Daybreak’s replacement GMB in 2014 – Dr Hilary stayed on as Health Editor.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
