This Morning: Miriam Margolyes apologises after swearing

Miriam Margolyes has opened up about getting older and said she feels like an “old lady”.

While appearing on the Table Manners with Jessie & Lennie Ware podcast, the 82-year-old shared her thoughts on the inevitable idea of growing old.

Singer Jessie, 39, said: “I mean, for us to, you’re a legend. And you’re fabulous.”

The actress responded: “It’s lovely to hear that you like me and you approve of me.

“But I truly am a little old lady. Trying to make a living. Trying to keep going.”

The film star expressed that she understands that as she is getting older, it means there are certain things that will hold her back in life.

She continued: “But no, I think when you get old, you become obviously aware of your vulnerability. I have a bad back.

“I’m probably going to be in a wheelchair soon. And you know, you have to come to terms with what life throws at you.”

Jessie then asked Miriam if she’s been preparing for the idea of being in a wheelchair.

The British-Australian star admitted: “Not really been preparing for it. I’m just sort of accepted that it’s probably going to happen.”

This isn’t the first time the Harry Potter actress has opened up about being in a wheelchair when she’s older.

Miriam suffers from spinal stenosis and as a result she had predicted she will “be in a wheelchair before I’m much older”.

According to the NHS, spinal stenosis is a term used to describe the narrowing of the spinal canal, which may cause compression of the spinal nerves, resulting in back pain or leg pain.

Miriam also revealed on the same podcast that she’s undergone heart surgery and now has the heart of a cow.

She said that she had transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and admitted it meant it stopped her from having open heart surgery.
