Since your fame in the 1980s with your band Pepsi & Shirlie have you seen any changes in how women of beauty+ age are being spoken to now by the entertainment and fashion industry?

I think what has changed is the ability for women to hold on to youthful features for longer as there are a lot more treatments available. I think is fantastic to have the choice, although it makes me sad to see young girls having things like botox, lip enhancements and HD eyebrows which give them that stupid generic look. Although when I look back at the 80’s with possibly the worst hairstyles of all fashion eras, I guess I shouldn’t complain!

Do you remember the first beauty product you bought and what is your current favourite that you use regularly?

I think the first beauty products I bought were Nivea cleansing milk and toner. I had an older sister who I would watch put make up on and then take it all off when she got home. I was fascinated by the amount of time she would spend in front of the mirror preening herself. Although I hated make up when I was younger, I liked the feeling of cleansing milks and toners.

What are your beauty tips for keeping the glow glowing? 

Exfoliating and polishing the skin is really important for me and lots of moisturiser. I notice people say how well I look when I have sprayed my face with fake tan (not too much of course), and also when using illuminating products. Boots No.7 has a great range of illuminating moisturisers.

Does your husband have a grooming routine you wish to share with us?

No, he is extremely basic and not into pampering himself although he does use a moisturiser.
