Griff: I'm OK with growing older
Griff Rhys Jones has confessed he's not happy about having to wear his glasses on screen.
The funnyman, 58, hosts alternative panel show A Short History Of Everything Else on Channel 4, and now needs his specs to read the autocue.
"Before I could have read it all without the need to beakily peer out over glasses," he said.
"I did notice when I was doing the show that I looked a bit like the old man with the glasses in Up. I was really disappointed by that, I saw myself on the monitor and thought, 'That old bloke over there... that's me!'"
Despite his misgivings, Griff - who also hosts BBC One show Britain's Lost Routes - said he was quite enjoying growing older.
He added: "I recommend it! All that business of peer pressure goes away. My children have fled the nest and there's no better time in life."
Griff is using his spare time to get into jazz and would like his next programme to be about 60 things you should do before you're 60.
"Less grandad Griff and more silver surfer Griff," he said. "In fact, surfing is something I'd like to try out for the show."
:: Britain's Lost Routes With Griff Rhys Jones begins on BBC One on Thursday, May 31. A Short History Of Everything Else begins on Channel 4 on Wednesday, June 13.
