It has been made by the Office of National Statistics , and as well as revealing odds of reaching 100 it shares your life expectancy based on your current age. While life expectancy continues to improve, experts say that UK life expectancies are not increasing in-line with other countries. It comes as a new report states the UK is 'falling down the global ranks'. It found that the UK has performed worse than all other G7 countries except the USA for life expectancy.

They can do so by plugging their current age and sex into the below ONS tool. Between 1950 and 2020, life expectancy increased from 68.63 to 80.43 years of age, however it has not kept pace with other 'advanced' countries including France, Germany, Italy and Japan.

One of the researchers, Dr Lucinda Hiam, of the University of Oxford and an honorary fellow at LSHTM , commented: "The rankings show that the only G7 country to do worse than the UK is the USA." Professor Martin McKee, co-author of the study from LSHTM, added: "While politicians invoke global factors, especially the effects of the pandemic and the invasion of Ukraine, the reality is that, as in the 1950s, the country suffers from major structural and institutional weaknesses."

81 Middlesbrough - 79.82 The authors of the new UK-wide study believe life expectancies are not increasing as quickly as some other nations due to factors including 'severe political and economic problems'. The study authors write: "At some point, it might be realised that proceeding along a particular path is slowly but surely resulting in the UK falling down the ranks. The headlines may be now, but the real causes would appear to have been decades in the making." Don't miss the latest news from around Scotland and beyond - Sign up to our daily newsletter here .
