Far from Bad Romance: Lady Gaga and Dot Cotton strike up friendship on Graham Norton
The unlikely pair hit it off as guests on the Friday night show
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.
