UK Driving Licence Expired

My UK driving licence expired in middle of this mess, and was automatically extended by UK government but nobody seems to know if that extension is accepted here in Madeira. DVLA say its down to the acceptance by foreign government where you are driving!!!! I’m over 70 but that should not affect it, as it applies to all expired licences that have been extended automatically, trying to get definitive answers to this is a nightmare of first order, wonder if others on blog are in same position?
