The mantra for older women should be “less is more”.

It applies as much to one’s clothes – which should be unadorned; you can’t do frills and furbelows when you’re my age – as to tattoos and the sort-of “youthful” look apparently acquired in a wind tunnel.

I hugely admire Felicity Kendal – always have done – so I am definitely going to go ahead with my tattoo. Emma Soames, editor-at-large of Saga magazine Tattoos are “better” than Botox?

Edward VII sported tattoos, and was rumoured to mark his established mistresses with a snake around a wrist.

Among my own age group, a tattooed ankle is similarly a mark of high caste: it shows its owner enjoyed a gap “yah” in Kathmandu. Not out of disapproval – I simply fear making a lifetime’s most lasting spelling mistake.

Once again Felicity Kendal proves herself to be the nation’s eternal sweetheart.

How can you not love a woman who says she’s a “rock chick” aged 66? The mark of the rebellious young person, tattoos just say “bad decision”. The sight of one ruins a working suit or evening dress.

Felicity Kendal shows a worrying desire to fiddle endlessly with her appearance, sometimes with rather tragic results.

When she appeared on Strictly Come Dancing, her mouth looked like a deep-sea creature gasping for food, so at least it’s good to hear she has given up on messing about with Botox.

I have researched where to go to have it done, and have decided what to have – a very small mati, the Greek eye symbol. Probably on my wrist, though I might need another year to decide on the exact location.
