A great-grandmother received a 101st birthday treat to remember when a naked butler surprised her at her nursing home.
Winnie Goode was “beaming” when the hunk presented her with a birthday cake and a glass of Baileys at her landmark party.
Days before her big day she told staff at Summerdyne Nursing Home in Bewdley, Worcs., her birthday wish was for a “nice man.”
Managers at the home didn’t disappoint when they hired a ‘butler in the buff’ to surprise Winnie on her special day.
Winnie, who has two sons, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, said: “That was very nice – I enjoyed that immensely.
“I had two birthday cakes – it was very nice.”
When asked what the secret to a long and happy life was, Winnie added: “A lot of it is luck.
“It’s important to keep going, be busy, eat properly and sleep properly and enjoy yourself.”
Her saucy surprised was arranged by the nursing home staff with the help of Winnie’s son Chris.
Laura Dourish, wellbeing leader at the nursing home said: “When we asked Winnie what she wanted for her birthday she said ‘a nice man’.
“We took that literally and thought that’s what we’ll get her.
“Her face literally lit up like a Christmas tree. She was really really excited.
“She thought it was so funny as well because we’d taken it so literally.
“We got him to bring in cake and give her a Baileys. She really enjoyed it”.
Winnie, who is originally from Essex, was born on November 20, 1922, when David
Lloyd George was Prime Minister and King George V was on the throne.
In 1942 she married her husband George and when World War Two broke out she worked in a munitions factory making fuses.
The couple, who lived in Norfolk, were married for 42 years before George died in 1984. Winnie later moved to be closer to her family in Bewdley, Worcs.
Over her remarkable life, Winnie has lived through 22 Prime Ministers and the entire 70-year reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
Last year Winnie was one of the first centenarians in the UK to receive a 100th birthday card from King Charles III.
She said: “I feel very happy to have seen so much in my life.”
Her son Chris, 70, said: “She is a remarkable woman and I’m lucky to live close to the nursing home so see her every day.
“She has got a great sense of humor and absolutely loved the butler in the buff surprise, it was the best birthday present she could have had.”
