Seeing someone you knew on TV …

This happened to me yesterday. I was watcing BBC News 24 over lunch and I saw Ali Percy, apparently a random member of the public, giving her views on proposed new waste policies. I knew her when we were at university together in the mid 90s.First reaction was “Wow, I know her”.

Second was that “And she looks exactly the same now as she did a decade and a half ago”.

Is it something about getting older yourself that you can’t recognise aging in people that you have known?
