Are we ageist? Actress goes undercover as a 90-year-old

Is our society ageist? A ComRes survey for 5 live found 27% of 55-64 year olds experienced ageism*, we sent former Emmerdale actress Roxanne Pallett out into a shopping area disguised as 90-year-old “Doris”.

In just over three hours, the 33-year-old was transformed using prosthetics and was shocked by her new look…

Roxanne's full story is available here and will be broadcast throughout Monday 11 April on Radio 5 live.

*ComRes interviewed 1,001 British adults by telephone between 11th - 13th March 2016.
