Paul O Grady reveals wrinkles are the reason his alter ego Lily Savage will not return.
“I’m 57, I feel I’m 207. I look in the mirror and I think, ‘That’s not a wrinkle, it’s a gutter across my face!. That’s the exact quote from Paul O’ Grady as he announced there will be no more Lily Savage on the small screen.
The presenter, who has released the latest volume of his memoirs, Still Standing, is dusting off the heels to bring Lily back in panto this Christmas, as Widow Twankey in Aladdin at the O2. But he said that this will be the last time.
He also blames technology. High definition will show up all the wrinkles. Lily Savage will never do telly again. Not with HD,” he admitted.
