Paul O’Grady’s Holiday Epiphany with Cilla Black
Phenomenally popular chatshow host Paul O’Grady has hinted that he might not be renewing his contract with Channel 4 when his current one runs out. Apparently, he was on holiday in Barbados with Cilla Black (as you do) when he started considering his long term future.
“My contract with Channel 4 comes up at the end of this year,” he said in an interview with The Sun. “I’m not sure what will happen after that. Funnily enough, Cilla asked me what I’m going to do and I just don’t know. I never do TV for money or fame and I always like to go out on a high when everything is going really well. I always think one morning I’ll wake up, the penny will drop and I’ll just stop.”
He also compared his current work with Channel 4 to the drag act that made him famous, Lily Savage. He said that “I had a diary full of events but I decided not to play her anymore, so who knows!”
