TV star Paul Daniels stepped out without style this week in the Caribbean with the wonderful Debbie McGee, with the choice of hosiery on show disappointing one reporter.
Luckily for Paul, perhaps, Richard Simpson of the Daily Mail was on hand to put the ageing magician in check, highlighting how Mr Daniels "managed to break every rule for elegant men's dressing in the process".
He continued: "His black slip-on shoes were matched with sky blue socks
pulled as high as they would go - but sadly not high enough to hide a large expanse of pale leg."
Today, Paul Daniels defended his wife to the newspaper, describing her as better-looking than Madonna, who is also 50.
He defended the criticisms originally levelled at her by the national press after she stepped out on the beach in a questionable bikini.
