A THRILLED OAP gets a strip down memory lane.
Joan, 89, used her care home’s wishing tree to ask for a man with “a large chest and big biceps”.
She and her 84-year-old friend, Pauline, were delighted when a stripper dressed as a fireman arrived at Glastonbury Court care home in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
In a video he is seen waving his belt around his head in the residents’ lounge as a group of elderly women watch on, with one in fits of laughter.
Joan reckoned: “I thought that he was amazing – I wish he could visit us every day!”
She added: “He made me feel like I was young again, I loved every second.”
Previous requests submitted to the home’s wishing tree include a trip to the beach at Felixstowe, shopping and afternoon teas.

Sharlene Van Tonder, home manager for Care UK, said: “Most people expect life in a care home to be a certain way, with residents watching television and doing a bit of knitting.”
“Here at Glastonbury Court, our ethos is about helping people to enjoy more independent and fulfilling lives in the way they want to, and we’re keen to ensure that there are no limitations so that every day can be different and fun.”
She added: “It’s fair to say this isn’t the typical kind of visitor we have at the home – but based on the response, he was one of the most popular.”
