Britain's breakfast show, GMTV, canceled Monday's Driving Rain publicity chat between 33-year-old host Kate Garraway and Sir Paul after he reportedly rejected her for being "too old", claiming she wasn't right for his "youthful" image, and insisting that he be interviewed by "a 20-something with edge." GMTV responded by telling Sir Paul, "Forget it - the whole thing's off."
Geoff Baker later explained that it was not Sir Paul at all, but rather an EMI record company representative who made the demands without Sir Paul's knowledge. Last night Sir Paul agreed to do the interview on Wednesday, however it will not be conducted by the devastated Ms. Garraway as she will be off filming in Africa.
