“THE best story ever!”, TV chatshow host Graham Norton shrieks after hearing from Islington Lib Dem councillor Paula Belford. She popped up on the Beeb’s flagship Friday night offering yesterday, explaining how she used to flick gravy over her husband as he slept on the sofa. Lols here, when he woke up and asked her for his dinner, she’d point to the gravy stain and say: Look you’ve eaten it already. The tale had Hollywood actor Steve Carell and the other guests in stitches.
But there’s more. Later, she candidly and with good humour tells how she found him lazing on the sofa with “those boxers with those little buttons and his little chappie hanging out”. A hoover is then introduced into the anecdote and it’s at that stage you’d probably be better turning to the iPlayer for more… It’s in the final moments of the show.
