published at6 months ago

The pair won the hearts of the nation after giving a cheeky interview on Good Morning Britain in May last year.

The hilarious pair won the hearts of hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid as well as viewers during the segment in which they joked that the secret to a long life was 'plenty of sex' and Lil revealed a not-so-secret crush on Jason Statham.

When Piers asked: "I heard I have a love rival - you're rather hot on him?"

Lil responded: "One night with him and I'll die happy!"

Susanne Reid could be heard howling with laughter with the cheeky response as the two women burst out into fits of giggles.

The twins took part from lockdown in the West Midlands where they are staying in their daughter's house after being moved out of their care home.
