London, Jan 28 (ANI): A widow in the UK who has just celebrated her 106th birthday has said that the secret behind her longevity is fish and chips.

Selina Kellett from Leeds said she loves her regular helping of haddock and chips.

“I don’t drink or smoke but I do love my fish and chips,” the Daily Express quoted her as saying.

The former tailoress, whose husband Ernest died 44 years ago, is in very good health despite breaking her hip in a fall in 2010.

Her daughter Mavis Fear, 80, said, “Fish and chips are her only vice and seem to do her the world of good.”

“Since the fall she can no longer walk by herself to the chippie, so has to rely on her niece Winnie to take her in the car.

“She’s always loved fish and chips, dark chocolate and gooseberries,” she said. (ANI)
