Following the news that Richard Gere’s going to be a father at the age of 69, ‘geriatric mothers’ Ellie and Anna consider the dos and don’ts of growing old gracefully - or disgracefully – and wonder whether they’re in ageing denial. Plus it was the Emmy Awards this week, so Ellie would just like to thank her thermal vest on the red carpet, Anna puts her winning instinct down to her dad holding a gun against her back (not literally) and an apology is long overdue for the Duke of Edinburgh.
