Debbie McGee reacts as famous Mrs Merton clip resurfaces: 'Tipped us over the edge'


A clip of Debbie McGee during an appearance on The Mrs Merton Show in 1995 has resurfaced online. The TV and radio star shared the hilarious snippet, which features one of the most famous comedy one-liners of all time, with her 43,100 Twitter followers.

Debbie, who was married to magician Paul Daniels from 1988 until his death in 2016, appeared on the programme with athlete Kriss Akabusi.

She said that the duo were in “stitches” when they took part in the mock chat show.

The host of the programme was a character created by late comedian and actress Caroline Aherne.

Debbie and Kriss were the first guests to appear on the programme on February 10, 1995, following the pilot episode.

“Hi tweeps. I’ve been quiet recently catching up with stuff.

“Thanks guys I am still in stitches from all your funny stories,” she added

“Pat is one of the nicest men in magic. I’m so glad he had a great birthday,” one follower remarked.
