The oldest woman in Scotland has revealed a surprising theory on the secret to a long and healthy life: lots of porridge and staying away from men.

Jessie Gallan celebrated her 109th birthday at a care home in Aberdeen on 2 January with a slice of cake.

“My secret to a long life has been staying away from men. They're just more trouble than they're worth,” she told the Daily Mail.

“I also made sure that I got plenty of exercise, eat a nice warm bowl of porridge every morning and have never gotten married.”
