Chat show host Graham Norton played matchmaker for an unlikely friendship this week when flamboyant singer Lady Gaga and EastEnders star June Brown shared a tipple on his sofa.
Renowned for her sublime and downright ridiculous fashion decisions, Gaga was full of admiration for the Dot Cotton actress, telling her, “you look amazing” before stealing a sip of her red wine.
“I want to drink from your cup to see what those genes are,” she drawled at the 86-year-old actress, plucking some flumes from her outlandish feathered headpiece and pinning a touch of ‘Gaga’ to Brown’s outfit.
Proving that the life in your later years can be daring, Brown admitted that her own striking get-up had been an attempt to “outdo” her fellow guest, who donned a seashell bra for her performance.
The episode of The Graham Norton Show will air this Friday, with actor Jude Law and comedian Greg Davies also featuring.
