Blind mate! Paul takes over from his pal Cilla
PAUL O’GRADY is set to deliver a lorra, lorra laughs after signing up to host the new series of Blind Date.
The late Cilla Black’s best mate assured fans the show will be in ‘safe hands’ when it airs on Channel 5 this summer.
‘It’s an incredibly special family show which brought laughter, tears and joy to TV viewers,’ said O’Grady, 61.
Cilla — who died in 2015 aged 72 — presented the Saturday night staple on ITV between 1985 and 2003.
Blind Date’s revamp will welcome LGBT contestants for the first time and feature ‘thematic twists’ on the traditional format.
One burning question, though… where’s our Graham?
