When asked if she's always tried to keep flexible, Marion said: "No I haven't. I sit all day and watch television.

"This morning before I came out, I couldn't put my foot on my head but now I can."

Speaking about teaching her stretches to her fellow care home residents, Marion said: "Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 11 o'clock they're supposed to come but some have to be brought.

"They go to sleep," to which Holly said: "Well I bet they can't keep up with you! It has to be seen to be believed what you can do."
