‘People think I’m lying when I tell them my real age – lads in their 20s ask me out’

Exclusive:

Eudora Okoro says people often don’t believe her when she tells them her date of birth because she looks so young – and she’s shared her top tips for maintaining a youthful look

Eudora says people “spit their drink out” when they learn how old she is

A 60-year-old woman who looks younger than her years says she’s constantly fending off men in their 20s who ask her out – thinking she’s 30.

Eudora Okoro’s flawless skin and stunning looks throw people off when they meet her, with most people thinking she’s three decades younger than her true age.

Despite her bombshell appearance, the dance teacher insists she’s never had botox or cosmetic surgery, and her youthful looks are down to staying hydrated and active and wearing SPF.

Eudora, from The Wirral, says she’s received messages on dating sites from men as young as 21 who want to take her out.

She said: “It’s a bit embarrassing, but flattering, when someone that young contacts me.

“They’re convinced my age is a lie when I tell them – and if I ever have to give someone my date of birth, they think I’ve gone mad.”

Although she jokes she’s old enough to be their grandmother, the former lawyer lives a young lifestyle too – working as a part-time DJ on top of teaching dance.

She said: “Whenever I have to give anyone my date of birth, people stare at me like I’ve gone mad.





“People almost spit their drink out when they find out I’m 60 – it’s a bit embarrassing, but very flattering.”

But she insisted there’s no real secret to her looks – you just need to be healthy.

“People take care of their cars, homes and gardens, but not their bodies,” she said.

“I’m living proof that age is just a number!”

Eudora says she started looking after herself when she was a teenager, after some worrying words from her dad.

She recalls him saying: “wait until you turn 30 – you’ll become a barrel.” But she was determined not to let that be her.

Each morning Eudora drinks a fruit and vegetable juice and she sticks to a plant-based diet. She also drinks two litres of water a day.

While her dance classes keep her very active, she also likes to take long walks in her free time.

She said: “Unless you have some kind of medical condition, I believe how we age is completely in our hands.

“Being fit and healthy helps you deal with anything – it affects you mentally as well as physically.

“People do things they know are bad for their body out of laziness – but being healthy and having good habits is a way of life.”

Despite living healthily 99% of the time, Eudora admits she enjoys a cheeky glass of wine or a bit of chocolate as much as anyone else. But she’ll always opt for dark chocolate and drinks plenty of water before bed if she’s had an alcoholic beverage.

“People see ‘treating yourself’ as eating unhealthy food, but for me it means having something which is good for your body,” she said.

Since her 52-year-old husband Paul tragically passed away in 2019, Eudora has become open to dating again. But she’s specifically looking for men aged 34-50 because younger men tend to “look after their bodies better.”

She said: “People waste a lot of money on surgery because they lack confidence in their appearance, but that is easy to achieve by looking after yourself.

“I remember watching Love Island and seeing these young women with makeup plastered across their faces spending all day in the sun – they should swap it for some sun cream.”
