“Millions rely on their TVs and many will go without food or heating to pay the licence fee. “The older generation have given so much to this country and they should be treated with respect, but sometimes I don’t think they are.”
Len, 76, who is recovering from skin cancer, also reminded people to write a will as he promoted Remember A Charity Week, which starts today.
He said: “After I have a shower and come out of the bathroom and look at myself stark naked in the mirror I think, ‘You’re 76 but do you know what, old son, you’re in good shape.’
“I still get out on the golf course a couple of times a week, do a little bit of training in my garage, walk and cycle so I feel absolutely great.
“But you just never know. Making a will just seems sensible and it doesn’t take long. It’s really not a palaver.”
He revealed he will be leaving his estate to his second wife Sue, his son and grandchildren plus good causes.
He said: “I am as fit as a fiddle but when I pop my clogs several charities are going to get rewarded and that is so satisfying to me.”
