Paul Costelloe made some seriously dodgy remarks about women on The Late Late Show last night

Car crash telly.

IRISH FASHION DESIGNER Paul Costelloe was one of the guests on last night’s Late Late Show and, true to form, he managed to rile the whole country up with some of his remarks.

The 71-year-old designer was asked for his thoughts on a whole range of matters, including love, celebrities and being a straight male working in fashion.

And he didn’t hold back.

He issued his judgments on a number of female celebrities.

He stated that Rod Stewart’s wife was a “bit gawky” and “trying too hard to be the second or third wife”. He labeled Camilla Parker Bowles “very small” and said that he would not “definitely not swap” his own wife for Camilla. (Don’t think that was on the table, mate.)

He remarked that Victoria Beckham should “smile a little more” and complimented Kate Middleton on her “great legs”. Upon being asked about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, he stated that the relationship was “certainly physical, that’s for sure”.

Thanks for that, Paul.

He later spoke about his romantic dalliances and explained that he had “been through a few old hatchets” in his day.

Hang on, what?

 A hatchet is a lovely girl who you really love for maybe a couple of weeks and then you go, “Ciao bella!”

What a charmer.

He also made a slightly off remark about being a straight man working in fashion…

After making a gag about being a “gay fashion designer,” he stated that he was in fact “one of the last of the old stock”.

We were the old lads who still played with women.

His claim that he’s “pro-women” also certainly raised a few eyebrows…

Tip: if you’re really pro-women, don’t refer to women as hatchets.

As did his suggestion that he’s “the best tailor in Ireland, if not in England”

This gal’s face pretty much summed the whole thing up.
