Celebrities' grey futures

Rolling with it: Liam and Patsy in the future

Liam Gallagher and Patsy Kensit might be in the prime of their youth now - but computer-generated trickery has allowed fans to see the couple in their wrinkly future.

The Oasis singer and his actress wife join broadcaster Chris Evans, Posh Spice Victoria Adams and Hollywood star Brad Pitt in having their pictures digitally enhanced to show what they might look like when they retire.

While Liam Gallagher retains his trademark scowl, Chris Evans' sagging jowl is reminiscent of comedian John Shuttleworth, and the future Victoria Adams has a touch of the Zsa Zsa Gabor about her.

The pictures are part of a new campaign which aims to raise awareness of the UK's ageing population.

Organisers of Age To Age Week are keen for young people to plan for their retirement by sorting out their pension requirements.
