The world’s oldest identical twins, 95, have revealed to Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain that the secret to having a long life is by having ‘plenty of sex’, much to the presenter’s shock and amusement.
Doris Hobday and Lil Cox, both 95, were both feeling rather cheeky as they were interviewed for GMB this morning, as they spoke from the comfort of Lil’s daughter Vivian’s home in Tipton.
The lively duo was asked how it came to be that they had lived such a long life and live it well.
Amused, Lil turned to her twin sister and answered: “Her secret… plenty of sex.”
As Piers and Susanna Reid were laughing away at the response in the GMB studio, a shocked Doris looked at her sister.
However, things got even saucier when Piers brought up Lil’s crush on the actor Jason Statham.
She said: “One night with him and I’d die happy.”
At the comment, Susanna shrieked with laughter, yet an undeterred Lil continued and said to Piers: “Mind you, I’m coming on to you now.”
Finding it hilarious, Piers responded: “You’re flirting outrageously, both of you.”
To get them even more “in the mood”, the host then popped on some Barry White music and asked for their thoughts on Colonel Tom Moore, 100.
Having one last naughty joke, Lil told the presenters: “I want bloody thrilling, not killing.”
As they were such a big hit with viewers of the show, many took to Twitter to praise the identical twin sisters.
One wrote: “‘I want thrilling, not killing’. Twins Lil and Doris are my quarantine spirit animals. Hope that I still have that cheeky humour and a twinkle in my eye when 95. Please set her up on a date with Jason Statham @GMB.”
Another shared: “Absolutely loved watched the twins – totally cheered me up Smiling face with smiling eyes! Xx”
Whilst a third gushed: “Omg I could of watched them gorgeous twins on @GMB all day absolutely loved them! 95 and such an inspiration.”
