Grandmother returns to the catwalk at age of 80

A GRANDMOTHER has been signed to a modelling agency – at the age of 80.

Elegant Marion Finlayson, from Aberdeen, started modelling as a teenager but gave it up to become a teacher at Albyn School.

After six decades away from the catwalk, the pensioner has been wowing the crowds again since taking up her former hobby two years ago.

Last year she decided to model at a charity event in her home city. She caught the eye of modelling chiefs and has now signed a deal with a Glasgow-based modelling agency.

Mrs Finlayson said: “It’s great fun and I’m just happy to still do something I enjoy.

“I’m turning 81 next month, so I think I’m doing all right.”
