Queen Elizabeth, 95,  has turned down an Oldie of the Year Award, saying "you are only as old as you feel and she doesn’t believe she fits the criteria."

According to royal correspondent Richard Palmer, this year’s main Oldie of the Year award went to the French-American actress, dancer and writer Leslie Caron, 90.
