A spokesperson for The Lodge Care Home said: "Forget London Fashion Week it’s all about The Lodge fashion week.

"Throughout the week we have been reminiscing about our favourite jobs and our aspirations for our dream jobs and what a wide variety of jobs we had, ranging from chefs to ballroom dancers to referees to being a super spy.

"What a week we have had here at The Lodge lots of fun lots of laughter and lots of dressing up.

"Everyone who took part in the fashion show thoroughly enjoyed it. Frank said it was like being young again and dancing at Ally Pally."
