Mary Portas is launching a pop-up employment agency to find jobs for Britain's overlooked and under-valued pensioners in Mary's Silver Service.

All professions are welcome as she encourages them to dust off their skills and go back to work. Her team at the agency is even run by retired recruitment exec Gill, who's 65, former city worker Mo, who's 70, ex-bookkeeper Shirley, 78, and sales exec Maggie, 67.

Mary wants to hit the hospitality industry first and her ads for potential caterers generate a healthy response. She soon finds an opportunity for her team to cater a Great Gatsby-themed party, but will they prove age and experience are better than youth?

Also, retired make-up artist Sandra is given the task of making a young girl look amazing for her 21st birthday party – is she up to it?
