Paul O’Grady has stairlift installed on ITV set

26th November 2013

Paul O’Grady’s ITV show has returned to television to much applause, but there are a few distinct changes to it. One of the most noticeable additions is that a stairlift has been added for Paul and his guests to use as they are introduced and brought out on stage. As well as helping celebrity guests down the staircase, the inclusion of the indoor stair lift on set shows that it is a great way for those who have mobility difficulties to use stairs independently and that it is nothing to be ashamed of, a great item to have in the home.

The popular television host revived his show on ITV this November after it came to an end in 2009, and its return has been welcomed by many people. Occupying the same 5pm slot, the theme tune has been revamped and performed by McFly and a stairlift has been added to the set to help all of O'Grady's guests use the staircase.

Reactions to the stairlift have been very positive. Paul O'Grady's chat show is known for its light-hearted humour and celebrity guests, and the addition of the stairlift was another way in which the show has adapted and demonstrated its appeal to all generations. When describing O'Grady's show, McMullen said that it "is more comforting than dunking a biscuit in a hot cuppa and slipping in a pair of comfy slippers".

Stairlifts are a very useful independent-living aid and can help all those who have trouble with balance or mobility still use the stairs, and home stairlifts from Handicare are suitable for a range of different staircases. From straight and curved stairlifts to stair lifts for the outdoors, Handicare has a stairlift that is a useful tool for both celebrities and the general public.
