Having hit 60 (but still a year younger than Madonna), Jenny Eclair AKA ‘The Face of Vagisan’ confronts a new decade of decrepitude. Now that it takes 20 minutes of scrolling down to find her DOB when she’s filling in forms online, should she celebrate or crawl into a hole?
What will her 60s hold for this 1960’s babe and is it a legal requirement to buy Nordic walking poles?
PS, ‘I’m carrying quite a lot of excess lock down weight, which you can feel free to discuss behind my back during the interval’. Love Jenny x
Jenny Eclair has been a stand-up comic for donkeys’ years; she was the first woman to win the coveted Perrier Award and hasn't stopped banging on about it ever since. She still gigs regularly and is on tour around the UK. TV highlights include I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here, the Grumpy Old Women series, plus the Grumpy Guides, Grumpy Holidays and It's Grim Up North. She also occasionally crops up on day time telly and gets very excited about doing things like This Morning and Loose Women. Stage wise, Eclair's biggest hit to date has been co-writing (with Judith Holder) and starring in Grumpy Old Women Live and Grumpy Old Women Live 2, and Chin Up Britain. 'Ruthlessly funny' (The Times).
