Today Doris donned some climbing gear to become the world’s oldest abseiler.

Not even today’s miserable cold weather and rain could wipe the totes adorbs smile from the daring OAP’s face as she descended down the side of the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth.

She’s already received an MBE for her charity fundraising.

Ms Long has said she felt no fear as she broke her own world record for the oldest abseiler by descending 94 metres down the side of a viewing tower. Wind and rain did not deter the pensioner, who has been honoured with an MBE for her charity fundraising, as she abseiled down the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth, Hampshire. She last performed the feat on her 100th birthday in May 2014. Nicknamed Daring Doris, who has previously abseiled alongside new Top Gear host Chris Evans, took up the challenge once again to raise money for the Rowans Hospice in Waterlooville. Ms Long, who first abseiled at the age of 85, said: "I don't feel afraid and never have, I just have a placid nature." The centenarian, who is 5ft tall and weighs eight stone, added: "I have a look down at the crowd, I am normally looking to see how the other person is getting on." See PA story CHARITY Doris.

Doris said: ‘I don’t feel afraid and never have, I just have a placid nature.

‘It was very hard work, much harder than last year. It was so windy I swung about a bit but enjoyed it, I feel it’s well worth it.’

That’s so Doris.

What IS she like?
