‘It’s sensational,’ says Beate. ‘I’ve always dreamed of being a model. Of course, part of me was surprised anyone wanted to see this old face. But I’ve never thought of myself as getting older; I always live in the moment. Now a whole new chapter of life is opening up.

‘I walked into the bank recently and the cashier said: “Weren’t you on the TV?” as my modelling had made the local news. I quite liked that. It all makes me feel I am worth knowing after all.’

In a stroke of fate that proves it’s ‘never too late’, Beate was scouted while out shopping last year in Oxford, where she lives.
