Los Angeles - Dame Helen Mirren's body double for her new film is 39 years her junior.

The 69-year-old actress is in such good shape that bosses on the set of war thriller Eye in the Sky have drafted in stunt performer Fleur van Eeden, 30, as her stand in.

Fleur - who has also been a body double for the likes of 39-year-old Charlize Theron - has enjoyed meeting the Oscar-winning actress while they have been filming in South Africa.
