The Queen is set to have plastic surgery to her forehead, neck and arms with some remedial work done around the mouth and eyes say the Bank of England.
The surgery will be done to coincide with new look plastic banknotes set to be brought into circulation in 2016
The polymer notes are said to be able to withstand a spin in the washing machine which could see the Queen’s traditional State Diadem crown replaced with more practical headgear suach as a bathing cap, a hard-hat or possibly a frogman’s helmet say the Bank.
The first washable notes will also feature Sir Winston Churchill. But gone are the traditional dry cleaned pin-stripe suits, replaced with drip-dry Speedo briefs or lycra cycling shorts.
One sticking point say the Bank, Churchill’s trademark cigar would almost certainly have to go due to EU Fire Safety regulations - something that will not go down well with Daily Mail readers and other far-right sympathisers.
It is hoped the plastic note will help replace the rubber cheque which has been used extensively by the UK public and small trader for over 100 years.
But drug users are concerned the new plastic banknote might prove difficult to roll up and could signal the end of nasal insufflation.
A committee will be set up to choose themes for the new notes. The first run will feature popular British landmarks such as Legoland, Chessington World of Adventure and the Bluewater shopping centre in Kent.
