May Willis, from Bexhill, credits her long life to no smoking, no alcohol – and lots of chocolate.

A pensioner who turns 111 next month has revealed the secrets to living to a ripe old age – no smoking, no alcohol and plenty of chocolate.

Born in 1910, May Willis, who lives in Bexhill, East Sussex, is looking forward to renewing old friendships once lockdown ends after recently having a Covid-19 jab.

She urged others to have the vaccine: “It doesn’t cost anything and it helps stop things spreading.”

And as she prepares to mark her 111th birthday, she offered a hopeful message: “Life’s too short. Make the most of what you’ve got.”
