Veteran TV host Richard Madeley has never shied away from a contentious comment or two. But his latest revelation may be the most bizarre yet. The 61-year-old revealed that he already has plans for when he and wife Judy are no longer on this earthly plane.

The former This Morning co-host confessed that he wants to be laid to rest side-by-side with his partner of over 30 years in Golders Green Crematorium, North London. And far from that being the end of the couple’s long-standing TV career, Richard has plans to delight viewers from the afterlife.

“Maybe when our time comes we can launch it on Paradise Television. The title’s a cinch at least. This Mourning with Richard and Judy.” Oh, Richard!

Thankfully Judy is likely to see the humorous side of things as the 69-year-old revealed that communication was one of the keys to their happy marriage. Speaking to The Mirror she said:

“Talking to each other is key. We still find each other very interesting, and we have similar interests too, like politics, current affairs… We took a long time to decide to get together, because children were involved (both Richard and Judy were married to other people when they met), but we’ve been lucky, it’s worked out well.”
