Blind Date host Paul O'Grady is apparently unhappy with show bosses cutting his innuendos.

According to audience members, TV legend Paul hit out at producers after being made to re-record scenes during filming earlier this year.


A source told The Sun newspaper: “He shouted at the crew, saying, ‘You’re a load of nuns — worse than the Salvation Army with their rules and preaching’.”

The onlooker at the filming session added: “There was a lot of innuendo about blowing and sucking.

“Pensioners in the audience were shocked. The show had to be reshot.”

The new series of Blind Date went down a storm on Channel 5 last Saturday night when it returned after more than a decade off air.

The show had originally aired on ITV, fronted by Paul's late friend Cilla Black.

Viewers gave a big thumps up to the revival last weekend with almost 2 million viewers tuning in to the first episode.

Last night saw a further 800,000 watch a repeat of the opening show, matching the numbers of Big Brother.


One viewer concluded: "Never an easy job taking over a TV classic from an incredible hostess. However, Paul O'Grady is brilliant. Enjoyable show #BlindDate"

New episodes of Blind Date continue Saturday nights on Channel 5 at 7PM. The show is then repeated Fridays at 8PM.
