Take a look at below article from the Guardian, and ask yourself who makes the selection of programme presenters - yes in the main it's men and for some reason male presenters over 50 are deemed more acceptable than women presenters over 50, hence women go to extraordinary lengths to remain looking more youthful in order to retain their jobs.

"F‎ewer than one in five presenters at major broadcasters over the age of 50 are women, a new study reveals.
Research compiled from figures taken from the main UK broadcasters found that just 18% of presenters over 50 are women. ‎BBCtelevision and radio, Sky, ITN and Channel5 combined have just 26 women over 50 working as regular on-air presenters out of a total of 481 presenters.

Overall, women over 50 make up just 5% of on-screen presenters of all ages and both sexes and 7% of the workforce, both on and off screen.

Senior executives at the BBC, ITV, ITN, Channel 4,Channel 5and Sky are to meet members of the Older Women's Commission on Thursday to discuss what can be done to end such discrimination.

Harriet Harman, Labour's deputy and the shadow culture secretary, accused the TV industry of ageism and sexism. "It really is a black hole Broadcasters behave as though the viewing public have to be protected from the sight of an older woman and that's just rude. There is nothing wrong with being an older woman."‎

"We've got to fight back against this sense that older women are less valuable, whereas men accumulate wisdom, authority and experience as they age."‎

I hope this puts the ageism and sexism issues within the TV sector into perspective and demonstrates to you why women seek to retain their youthful looks.‎
