And they are at their hottest at 53 — the age of a string of sexy celebrities including Tess Daly, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman and Gillian Anderson.
Four in ten over-50s (41 per cent) said they were more comfortable and confident about their looks.
And almost a fifth (18 per cent) reckon dating is spicier and more exciting than in their youth.
Many go to swanky restaurants (48 per cent) and fly off for naughty weekends (40 per cent).

Some 53 per cent say they now know what they want — and are not afraid to go for it, while 40 per cent have stopped worrying about how they come across.
Meanwhile, 31 per cent insist the idea of sex getting boring and “vanilla” as you get older is a myth — with 29 per cent claiming the notion of 50-plus Brits never having one-night stands is outdated and inaccurate.
The research by over-50s dating service Ourtime also found 35 per cent reject the idea of everyone “letting themselves go” when they hit middle age.
Other inaccurate stereotypes of what it means to grow old include getting fat and wrinkly (44 per cent) and getting desperate to find someone so they do not grow old alone (34 per cent).
