Magic wand, Paul? 'SEX SYMBOL' DANIELS: I'VE BEDDED 300 WOMEN.
FIVE foot five and bald as a coot, TV magician Paul Daniels may seem an unlikely sex symbol.
Yet the squeaky-voiced Yorkshireman clearly believes his own trickery - after claiming to have bedded 300 women.
And that was just in his 30s.
In a cringeworthy interview, pint-sized Paul grins as he flexes his biceps and says: "Feel, feel." He adds: "That's just from push-ups, I'll say no more. In-ternational sex sym-bol."
You'll like this next bit... but not a lot. The veteran entertainer boasts: "I've had 300 lovers, but I didn't necessarily make love to all of them.
"The trick is making women laugh. I laughed all of them into bed... magic."
Paul's glory days disappeared after he was dropped from BBC schedules in 1994. These days he is currently appearing in a World Cup ad for Walkers crisps. Despite describing himself as a "tomorrow man", he is quick to cast his mind back to the 60s. "I met these women doing my shows in my 30s," he says.
"In my lifetime - I am 72, I know, I know, I don't look it - women were afraid of sex, of getting pregnant. It was the biggest disgrace, you were called a tart, the lowest of the low.
"Then along came the Pill and suddenly women just decided they could have all the sex they wanted forever and went to bed with everyone." Twice-wed Paul, a dad of three, has been married to his assistant (the lovely) Debbie McGee, 51, for 22 years.
She was once famously asked by comedienne Caroline Aherne on the Mrs Merton show: "What first attracted you to the millionaire Paul Daniels?"
But Paul insists: "We have sexathons - that's how we both keep fit." He adds: "I've got the best woman of them all, and I'm still doing magic... every night."
