This morning I did a Google search, and as I expected, it caused a Tumblr storm.
Let me quote from the article:
"Rehearsals have been extremely physical. 'We have two hours' warm-up and it's really fierce, like being trained for the SAS', says Stubbs. 'There are press-ups and a lot of leaping and jumping.'
|Una, back in the day|
'A lot of people say to me, 'Can you still dance?' Yes!' she shrieks. 'Although I think if you do dance when you're older it's better to dance with a little restraint. I can't bear it when you see those old dears flinging themselves around, going, 'I'll show 'em.'"
She is 75 years old.
That does it.
I have got to get fit.
There are a couple of books out there with her name on them - but I think it was only "In Stitches" that she wrote herself. It's a rather lovely embroidery book which inspired me (at the time -1980's) to get busy with my needle and some pillowcases. In it, she shows a sketch she did of her lanky teenaged son, in preparation for an embroidery. Fab! Despite looking quite dated, I need a copy to keep (and it's only one penny at Amazon).
I just did a search, and as well as the expected videos of Worzel Gummidge there is a vinyl copy of "Have Fun Keep Fit" - who knew - a fitness LP?! Someone really ought to commission her to make a new dvd for women of a certain age - I would buy it!
