A GRANDFATHER has turned off his television as soon as a sex scene began.
78-year-old Norman Steele was watching a film with his wife and teenage grandson until an on-screen couple began kissing passionately. Steele immediately grabbed the remote and turned the television off.
His grandson Tom Booker said: “Credit where it’s due, grandad wasn’t fucking about. There was no feeling embarrassed and waiting for it to finish.
“He could have changed the channel but instead he turned it right off, as if angry with the entire medium of television.
“I’m not even sure it was going to be a proper sex scene, there were two people snogging but it might have cut to something else after a few seconds. It was Romancing The Stone which I’m fairly sure is a PG.
“Afterwards there was silence. Nan kept doing her knitting and, after sitting there looking cross for a bit, grandad picked up his copy of The Mirror.”
