Paul Costelloe denies claims he should apologise following his comments on The Late Late Show
Irish fashion designer, Paul Costelloe, has refused claims that he should apologise following his comments on the Late Late show last Friday night.
The designer described his appearance on the show as “very fun, very Paul Costelloe.
Viewers were left angry after he referred to Rod Stewart’s third wife, Penny Lancaster, as “a bit gawky” adding that she was “trying too hard to be the second or third wife,” according to The Mirror.
Costelloe also said Camilla Parker Bowles, wife of Prince Charles, was “very small”, on two separate occasions when quizzed by show host Ryan Tubridy.
Viewers were angry at his remarks as they felt he lacked respect for women and that his comments were sexist and derogatory.
However, while appearing on the Elaine Crowley’s afternoon show on TV3 on Monday, the famous designer denied claims that he had been disrespectful.
“I thought it was amusing and entertaining, very Paul Costelloe. Very fun,” he said.
Adding, “I filled the role of a designer who is realistic.”
“Everything I said was amusing and that’s what The Late Late Show is all about.”
He went on to say that the audience were pleased, and that he had been asked back.
“I hope I entertained and judging by the sound of the audience they were very very pleased and that’s my role.
“And that’s why they have asked me back, they can’t wait to have me back.”
We’re not sure people will be so happy about seeing him on the show again.
