First-time cover star at the age of 80

Beate Howitt is a cover model for the first time - aged 80.

The retired teacher, from Oxford, recently won a modelling competition after her friend entered on her behalf, without her knowledge.

She beat entrants decades younger and has now been taken on by a top modelling agency.

She will also be on the cover of the next edition of Goldie magazine.
