No sting in the tail for David Dimbleby
Fair play to David Dimbleby for getting a 'tramp stamp' at the grand old age of 75. The esteemed Question Time presenter decided to get a scorpion inked on his shoulder as part of research into a new series on Polynesian tribal tattoos.
But instead of pretending he'd gone above and beyond in the interests of serious journalism, David confessed he'd secretly always wanted a tattoo.
As if we weren't shocked enough, the high-brow BBC man said he thought about Cheryl Cole's rosy bottom but decided against having any of his private parts done.
At least he doesn't have to worry about how his scorpion will wrinkle in old age.
