Jonathan Ross in soup again over sex with an 80-year-old jokeJanuary 26th, 2009 - 5:47 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan 26 (ANI): Jonathan Ross has landed himself in trouble yet again after making sick jokes about sex with an 80-year-old woman on his Radio 2 comeback show.
The broadcaster has returned to work this week after serving a three-month suspension from the BBC for his part in the Sachsgate scandal, which saw him leaving a series of lewd messages on the voicemail of Fawlty Towers actor Andrew Sachs, reports the Mirror.
In Ross’’s first radio show since the row, the host’’s producer Andy Davies discussed a woman who lived near his Spanish villa.
“There’’s a woman in the village who’’s getting on a bit, keeps trying to kiss me. Older woman. Very older woman. She keeps grabbing me, Every time I see her now I have to run indoors. She’’s apparently got a thing for younger men. She must be about 80, I reckon, he said.
Ross replied: “Eighty, oh God! I think you should, just for charity. Give her one last night, will you? One last night before the grave. Would it kill you?”
Davies’’s wife Abigail has since confirmed that the woman does exist, explaining: “It’’s very sad because she has Alzheimer’’s Disease. She takes a fancy to any man in the street and tries to kiss them.”
Talking of the radio row, a BBC spokesman said: “Regular listeners will be familiar with Jonathan’’s irreverence and innuendo. This lighthearted exchange contained no offensive language, named no individuals and there was clearly no intention to offend anyone.” (ANI)
