She said that in the morning she drinks half a pint of sherry, for lunch she drinks a gin and tonic and at around 7pm she drinks a small ginger ale with a bit of whisky but these days she just has a sherry now and again, the Daily Star reported.

Peel asserted that she decided to pack in smoking when she was 103, as she was suffering from bronchitis and that the doctor warned her about her life.

She said nowadays she still is tempted to have an odd cigarette at Christmas or New Year along with pink champagne- her favourite drink.
