Just got back from the filming of Paul O'Grady - it was a great day, unfortunately I didn't get to ask Gene the stuff I wanted to ask, but he was very cool regardless. He hung out with the audience during the break and was in a very good mood. Loved his jacket too - had 'Deuce' written on the back.

The interview was exactly what I was expecting (unmarried for 23 years etc), so nothing new there. However, this time most of the audience seemed to agree with him, even applauded him. One thing you prob didn't see on the show - at the end when Paul was being bombarded with snow - Gene was the one standing off camera chucking a bucket-full at him!

Sadly all the stuff I was asked to cart to London wasn't used (Gene dolls, jack in box & lunch box), but it was our free ticket to VIP seats so I'm not complaining! I blame Richard & Judy for talking too much during Gene's bit - Paul had all the stuff just under his desk ready to use.

Big thanks to Alex at OlgaTV for setting it all up.

Even managed to brush past into Keith 'Shefiff Of Nottingham' Allen outside the green room!
