Paul O'Grady: Same-sex couples on Blind Date 'about time'

To coincide with the Pride parade in London, Channel 5 is to air a landmark moment in television - the first LGBT episode of Blind Date.

Paul O'Grady, who now presents the programme, told The World Tonight "it's about time".

Mr O'Grady, who has previously said it wouldn't happen on the BBC, said he couldn't see Strictly Come Dancing having "two couples of the same sex doing the paso doble across the dance floor".

He said: "I think [the BBC is] scared of offending people."
