Tony Blackburn – 499 left to go
WHEN we read that Tony Blackburn had slept with 500 women, we looked around the place for signs for telltale nylon threads on blouse cuffs. And then the Daily Mirror named one of the conquests as Lyn Paul. This was followed by an apology:
Following our article of 1 May 2012 in which it was reported that Lyn Paul of the New Seekers was a “conquest” of Tony Blackburn, Ms Paul has contacted us to say that she merely shared a dinner date with Tony Blackburn and neither slept with him nor had a relationship with him.
499 to go…
