A pensioner who asked for a stripper to visit her care home said she ‘loved every minute’ of his performance.

Joan, 89, requested that an attractive man with a ‘large chest and big biceps’ attend Glastonbury Court care home in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, as part of their wishing tree initiative.

She and a group of other elderly residents were then treated to a dance by a man dressed as a firefighter.

In footage of the performance, the stripper can be seen giving one woman a hug, before waving his belt around his head.

He then sits on the lap of another resident and pulls her arms around his waist and thighs.

Speaking afterwards, Joan said she thought the stripper was ‘amazing’ and she wished he could visit the care home ‘every day’.

She continued: ‘He made me feel like I was young again, I loved every second.’

In the past, residents of the care home have wished for shopping trips, afternoon teas, and have been on a trip to a beach in Felixstowe.

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.

‘We’re keen to ensure that there are no limitations so that every day can be different and fun.

‘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.’
