Australian comic Minchin makes a risqué castaway with sex doll suggestion


Listeners to BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs could be left spluttering into their cornflakes this morning after castaway Tim Minchin suggested a robotic sex doll could be a good choice of luxury.

The Australian musical comedian told the show's host, Kirsty Young, that he would struggle to decide whether to take the doll or his piano. He said: "I assume lots of people say a robotic sex doll? But if it wasn't something to occupy me in that way I'd take my piano."

He added that his lifestyle was "conservative".
