While most 100-year-olds get cards from the Queen on their birthdays, one former market stall owner was all shook up with a visit from The King.
Cordelia Nickerson of Great Yarmouth - known fondly to many as Nicky - was treated to a visit from Elvis Presley tribute act Peter King, as she celebrated her big birthday.
The singer gave a special performance at Abbeyfield House on Lawn Avenue, where she is a resident- as staff and fellow residents celebrated the big occasion.
Karen Wade, house manager of Abbeyfield, said that Mrs Nickerson was the house's first ever 100-year-old.
She said: 'Everybody had a fabulous time - they were all singing along and there was some dancing too.
