The centenarian who drives in life's fast lane

At 100 years old, Peggy Hovell is an active centenarian who used to deliver groceries during World War II and still loves driving.

Positive to the point of being fearless, her plans for a charity parachute jump in her 90s were thwarted on medical advice.

Find out more about Peggy Hovell's story in How to Live Beyond 100, broadcast on Monday 9 July at 22:35 BST on BBC One.
