Sir Michael Parkinson made a rare television appearance during Wednesday’s Lorraine as he spoke via video link with Christine Lampard. Over the years, the 86-year-old has become a household name and has conducted some of the most iconic interviews. He has chatted to the likes of John Wayne, Fred Astaire, John Lennon, David Bowie and Madonna. During his interview with Christine, Parkinson chatted about his upcoming BBC One documentary which airs on Saturday. However, viewers were left concerned by Parkinson’s appearance, with many taking to social media to share their thoughts.

Following Sir Michael’s chat with Christine, one bluntly penned on Twitter: “Jesus Christ I would never have recognised Parky.”

A second tweeted: “Bit of a shock when you haven’t seen someone on the TV for a long time and then see them as an old person. 

“You think they’ll look the same,” the Lorraine viewer added.

Another wrote: “It’s horrible to see Parky looking so old. Absolute legend.”

Some viewers although mistook the TV presenter’s appearance for Paul McCartney.

 “Just nipped out of the room, came back and thought it was Paul McCartney,” A third said.

“Is that Paul McCartney?” a fourth asked as they were taken aback by his appearance.

However, others praised the veteran presenter for speaking eloquently and being in high spirits during the chat with Christine.

“Parky one of the best talk show hosts,” one fan said while a second weighed in: “He’s great for 86!”
