Floella and Sinitta both look fabulous for their ages.

Sally from Corra never seems to age does she?

I would like to add that I believe Sid James was actually 53 years old for his entire adult life. Likewise, Des O'Connor and Anita Harris have yet to pass 45. #pictureintheattic

It might have something to do with his skin. He has acne scarring and maybe it ages him when not covered up properly? I dunno.
Possibly - or maybe it's SO covered with make up on screen that it accentuates his lines more.
I'm not saying he's not good looking, btw, in case that's how it's coming across! He's not my cup of tea but I can see that he's attractive (i don't think being more mature makes people unfanciable anyway)
I just thought he looked older than he is.

Yes, I agree about Adele. Like her a lot though.
I think Adele looks her age but she carries herself with a maturity and confidence that makes her seem older.

If David Benson Phillips is 49, then so is Floella Benjamin! They both presented Playschool when I used to watch it as a kid in the early 80s.

Perhaps he's Sinitta's older brother
He presented Playdays, I don't think he did Playschool did he?

Also Donna Air claims to be 34. Sorry, not buying that, surely closer to 40.
She's definitely 34 she went to school with some of my friends.

According to Wiki - "While working at Haven, a talent scout saw him perform, and he was invited by BBC Manchester to audition for Play School. His audition was successful, but the show was pulled out of production shortly after he signed the contract; however, it was recommissioned as Playbus (later renamed to Playdays), which ran for 9 years".

comic jason manford is 32 looks mid 40s
You are kidding me ! He definitely looks mid forties.

Russell Kane also reckons he's about 33 years old - yeah rite Russell, he's in his forties IMO.

He fits into the not nice celebs thread, in the 90's he thought himself to be a huge star, tom cruise level, was dickish with it.

He was lovely to me when I met him, couldn't have been nicer.

Actually, this might be a fair assessment.

Regarding Sinitta, the tabloids in recent months have all been saying she's 50 and she even had a '50' reference on her Twitter account a while back. It appears that she'd previously been extracting five years from her real age!
Sinitta is Whogivesashit years old

I used to see Anita regularly 20 years ago when she was a client in the company that I worked for. Not only was she one of the most naturally beautiful women that I have ever seen, she had a personality to match. Gorgeous lady!
