David Dimbleby’s tattoo – the Twitter reaction

The broadcaster gets a scorpion tattoo at 75 years of age, saying it just "zings a bit"

First Paxman’s beard, and now this!


“You are only old once,” veteran broadcaster David Dimbleby told Radio Times after getting a scorpion tattooed on his back. The opportunity arose, at the age of 75, while making his new maritime series, Britain and the Sea. “I have always wanted a tattoo,” said the Question Time host. “I thought I might as well have it done now. It’s a dream come true for me.”

Turns out a few people on Twitter thought it was a dream too…
