Dame Judi Dench 'uses supplements to prevent memory loss'

Dame Judi Dench has told BBC Radio 4's PM programme she has been taking a health supplement as a "preventative" to memory loss, but not as a cure, as suggested by some newspaper reports.

"I'm cross because it sounds like I started to take these when I started to not remember the lines and that's not true," she said.

She added that as well as taking a supplement, she tried to learn something new every day to keep her brain active.
