Sir Michael Parkinson has revealed what he admires most about other men – their sense of humour. 

In an interview with this week’s Stellar magazine, the 85-year-old British TV icon was asked if he believed that men find it hard to express their emotions – and he was quick to disagree.  

‘Most men I know are the opposite, they’re very sensitive and also very funny. That’s the thing I like most about men,’ he said.

‘It’s a very contentious statement, but they’re much better than women in their sense of humour’ the host added.

Sir Michael admitted it was a statement that could get him ‘in trouble’ these days, telling the magazine, ‘There you are, that will get me’. 

But he insisted that he pays no mind to ‘cancel culture’ and believes that it’s ‘nonsense’.  

He told the magazine: 'Most men I know are... very sensitive and also very funny. That's the thing I like most about men. It's a very contentious statement, but they're much better than women in their sense of humour'

‘I ignore it, I’ve never participated in it, I don’t belong to any of it… It seems to be out of control and people are getting hurt by it – young people, too. 

‘God knows we all have enough problems without this additional nonsense,’ he said. 

Parkinson’s career in television spans over 50 years, and he’s best known for hosting his own talk show, Parkinson, from 1971 to 1982 and from 1998 to 2007.  

Over the years, Sir Michael has interviewed many names of great note.

Some of his more memorable sit downs have included chats with Hollywood greats Bette Davis, Gloria Swanson and Orson Welles, sporting legend Muhammad Ali, even a cheeky flirt with Lauren Bacall.    

He’s also managed to secure more than his fair share of exclusive scoops. 

In 2001, Victoria Beckham famously revealed in an interview that she called her husband David Beckham ‘golden balls’ at home. 

The revealing clanger made front page news all over the world. 

Sir Michael is set to release his new book, Like Father, Like Son: A Family Story, which he penned with his son Mike Parkinson, on Tuesday.
