Old Dog, Old Trick

‘FROM fuck-up to fuckwit to Des O’Connor – and we can hardly tell you how glad we are to see his happy 72-year-old face beaming at us from the pages of Hello!

‘We’ll meet again…sooner than you think’

There’s only so many poor little rich girls that we can take and Des may wear bad clothes, sing horribly and be as vain as a narcissistic peacock.

But give us five of him to every one Petrina or Lady Victoria any day.

And five is the number of kids that Dessie will have in a few months time after his 35-year-old partner Josie announced she was pregnant.

‘Des hasn’t stopped smiling,’ an insider at his ITV show Today With Des And Mel announced.

‘Most 72-year-olds would put their feet up after announcing their child’s impending birth, but Des was back in the studio doing his usual 12-hour shift.’

Which begs the question – just how many 72-year-old about-to-be-parents are there at ITV?’
