At 96, “plenty of sex” is secret of long life for UK’s oldest twins as they get flirty live on air with TV presenter
Britain’s oldest identical twins had famous presenter Piers Morgan in absolute hysterics as they revealed the secret to living a long life is ‘plenty of sex’.
Doris Hobday and Lil Cox, who will turn 96 in July, were both in cheeky moods as they chatted with Piers and Susanna Reid from their lockdown base in Tipton on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday.
The interview started out innocently enough, with the duo saying they had been staying with Lil’s daughter after leaving their care home so they could quarantine together during the coronavirus crisis.
However, things quickly became flirty when they were asked what their secret was for living ‘so long and so well’.
Pointing to her sister, Lil said ‘her secret? Plenty of sex’, before bursting into laughter. As the GMB hosts broke down in giggles, a smiling Doris shouted’ no, no’ and crossed her arms.
When questioned on whether her twin’s revelation was true, she replied: ‘No sex’. However, Lil wasn’t done with the naughty quips yet, telling Piers that if she had one night with Jason Statham, she’d ‘die happy’.
Setting her sights on the journalist, she added: ‘Mind you, I’m coming on to you now.’
However, when asked what they thought about a potential romance with Colonel Tom Moore, who raised £32.7 million for the NHS last month, the girls were less keen.
Lil had the studio in fits of laugher when she said: ‘I want bloody thrilling, not killing.’ The twosome became more serious as the interview drew to a close, telling the audience to ‘make the best of everything’ and ‘show plenty of love’ in life.
Unsurprisingly, they were a massive hit on social media, with hundreds taking to Twitter to express their love for them.
One person named Caroline wrote: ‘Can we have Lil and Doris on Prescription they are the tonic we all need right now.’
Another called Michelle put: ‘Funniest thing I have seen on TV in ages! Such a tonic! These two ladies need their own TV show’.
The twins have changed their tune since September, when they told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield that they thanked no sex, lots of Guinness and raw sausage sandwiches for their long and happy lives.
