There's still hope for us single ladies! Britain's oldest couple has recently tied the knot proving that it's never too late to find Mr Right!

It was love at first sight for Charlie Winter, 91, and Daisy Pike, 89, when they met each other nine years ago at a bus station.

The pair were both so love struck that they missed their buses and went on a first date to a fish and chip shop.

Since then, war veteran Charlie, constantly begged Daisy to be his wife but she refused to rush into marriage - until she ended up in hospital.

Once again, the resilient 91-year-old popped the question in front of family and friends.

This time she said yes and they wed at St Mary Magdalene Church in South Molton, Devon on Sunday 16 March.

The couple, with a combined age of 180 years, enjoy travelling together.

Over the years they have holidayed in Weston-Super-Mare, Blackpool, Portugal, the Netherlands, Snowdonia and are now planning a honeymoon in June to Bournemouth.

Daisy, quoted in the Daily Mail online, said: "We're just in love and that's it. Madly in love to tell the truth."

Aw, cuuute!
