A Turkish grandma has claimed that the secret behind her youthful good looks is eating kebabs.

Ajda Pekkan revealed the 'secret' behind her looking so good for her age in an interview with local media.

She told reporters that along with regular workouts, a boob job and anti-ageing spas, her 'healthy diet' kept her in shape.

Ajda said: "I am always very careful about what I am eating. I can't say I limit my choice in food. I like kebab and fish.

"I am always very careful about what I am eating.

"Every morning I drink ginger-lemon-honey mixture in a glass of water.

"I never wanted to be a beautiful woman figure. But I always protect my body.

"Genetics and sport are very important to stay in shape."

Pekkan, 71, represented Turkey in the Eurovision song contest way back in 1980.

During her music career, Pekkan has recorded songs in nine languages and released more than 20 albums, with the sales of over 42 million copies worldwide.

She was awarded the honorary distinction of Officier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 2013.

And fair play to her for also scoffing through a doner or two as well.
