My Hi-de-low!

Don’t re­make my favourite sit­com... un­less i can be in it

TV Times - - News -

tv has gone re­vival crazy with come­backs such as Are You Be­ing Served? and Por­ridge, but paul o’grady tells us that he has mixed feel­ings about whether they should bring back his favourite sit­com.

‘i’m ter­ri­fied they’re go­ing to re­make Hi-de-hi!, which i loved. i think they should leave it alone be­cause where are you go­ing to find a new Gla­dys [ruth Madoc] or ted Bo­vis [paul shane]?’ says the For the Love of Dogs pre­sen­ter and chat show host.

de­spite paul’s mis­giv­ings, he has a role in mind if it does come back. ‘i want to play Mr par­tridge, the chil­dren’s en­ter­tainer who hated all the kids. that would be a hoot.’

Hi-de-hi! was a camp clas­sic in both senses of the word
