ON FRIDAY MORNING, This Morning’s Ruth and Eamonn met three ‘Golden Girls’ ahead of their appearance on the Take Me Out 10 year anniversary special, which only featured contestants over the age of 50.

The over 50s had more energy than the regular contestants, tbh. 59-year-old Sharon told Ruth and Eamonn:

I know exactly what I want, and especially at my age now, I know what I deserve.

However, Maggie had a different attitude, explaining “I’m only as young as the man I feel.”

So when the show aired, it was naturally quite entertaining.

Paddy Guinness made a couple of jokes that were just too cringey and referred to the evening as ‘Grab-A-Granny-Night’, but the contestants were the real stars of the show.

One of the daters was a Billy Connolly lookalike who lives in Ibiza and spends his time painting.

He was paired with Maggie, from the video above, who is let the world know that she is still very capable of doing the splits at her age.

Twitter was full of praise for the special, with many people calling for an entire series.

An over 50s Love Island? Imagine.
