London, November 12 (ANI): British model Georgina Baillie says she fears health of her grandfather Andrew Sachs, best known for his portrayal of Manuel in the TV comedy Fawlty Towers, might suffer after he was made a victim of a radio phone prank call.

The 78-year-old, who had been due to be a phone-in guest on a late-night radio show, on being unavailable had received four messages on his home phone from RJ Russell Brand and DJ Jonathan Ross claiming the former had slept with his granddaughter Georgina.

The infamous October incident, in which Brand spoke of his prior sexual relationship with the goth-styled model while Ross passed lewd comments, had led to a record number of complaints and criticism resulting in the suspension of both presenters from their positions at the BBC Radio 2.

Following the wicked prank, Georgina, who dances under the stage name Voluptua in burlesque troupe The Satanic Sluts, said she was now afraid that the revelations into her sex life could cause harm to her grandfather.

Its put a lot of pressure on the family because, you know, when you have 50 people outside your house. Especially if youre a 78-year-old, the Sun quoted her as saying on the Absolute Radio.

On being asked if she feared a heart attack, Georgina replied: Yeah, definitely. I mean, and I just thought like, there is nothing I can do to make the situation better, I just feel bad for, you know, telling Russell that he was my Granddad. (ANI)
