Paul O’Grady, 2008

“I’ve frequently been asked over the years who Lily Savage was based on and I’ve always answered that it was no one in particular and she was just a figment of my imagination. The truth, I realise now, is that Lily owes a lot to the women I encountered in my childhood. Characteristics and attitudes were observed and absorbed, Aunty Chris’s in particular, and they provided the roots and compost for the Lily that would germinate and grow later on.”

“I just want the show to be like a party, a group of pals gabbing away about the first things that come into their heads. There are always enough things in life to worry and get depressed about. I want my show to take our minds off all that stuff, even if it’s only for a while.”

“I don’t rehearse, but I do research. If I’ve got an author on, I’ll always read the book. I think that’s the least you can do rather than just reading the researcher’s notes. I suppose I do so much research because I really love television. That’s why I work in it. I’m passionate about it and I always have been.”

“I felt I was part of the PR machine. There was so much interference. They’d want this guest or that guest. Every question had to go through the lawyers. I was just another plug for someone’s book or film.”
