SHE may be nearing 40, but former supermodel Claudia Schiffer looked as good as ever when she donned her wellies and headed to the Suffolk Show.

And according to a new poll, she is one of a number of celebrities to approach their twilight years with the minimum of effort while still maintaining their youthful glamour.

A survey of more than 36,000 music fans put Suffolk's resident stunner on a top ten list of women Britons would like to see strutting their stuff well into their 70s.

Aussie songstress Kylie Minogue, who has just turned 40, topped the poll, while Elle Macpherson, 44, and Liz Hurley, a sprightly 42, finished just behind.
