Paul O'Grady's comedy heroine is Julie Walters.
The 55-year-old chat show host explained the veteran actress "can't put a foot wrong" in his eyes, as she has played such a wide variety of different characters.
He said: "Julie Walters is my comedy heroine. I love everything she's ever done. She was brilliant as Rosie in 'Mamma Mia!' and hilarious as Mrs. Overall, the tea lady, in 'Acorn Antiques'.
"She's terrific in 'Harry Potter' and full of energy and empathy in 'Billy Elliot'. She can't put a foot wrong as far as I'm concerned."
Despite finding Julie hilarious, the TV star admitted he finds "complete strangers" are often the funniest people he meets.
He explained: "The funniest people are often the ones who stop me in the street for a conversation. They are complete strangers who want to share a bit of their life with me, and I'm happy to chat as there's often a funny story they want to tell me. I love it."
