A woman who has lived through two world wars, 21 prime ministers and has just celebrated her 102nd birthday puts her longevity down to eating few veg.
Mary's friend Maggie wished for a Chippendale for her birthday
Mary Doherty, who lives at Urmston Cottage care home in Greater Manchester, said the only vegetables she eats are potatoes, peas and onions.
Mary used to work in her family's bakery and loves good home cooking.
Her friend Maggie Redmond, also a resident at the Cottage, will be celebrating her 102nd birthday in June.
When asked what she would like as a suitable present, Maggie replied, "a Chippendale".
