I wish I could remember who it was but I once read a commentary by a female columnist who was pretty hacked off with him. She was at some event with a friend who has a mobility-related disability. Paul Merton was at the same event and I think she and her friend had to negotiate a difficult stairway (the place can't have been very well adapted for disabled access). As he was the only one passing at the time, she asked if he could give a hand. Instead, he just mumbled 'sorry', brushed past them and went on his way.

Well, there could have been many reasons for that but the columnist was pretty hacked off with him, which is why she mentioned it in her column. It was some years ago. She had liked him and his comedy prior to that event. Thing is, we don't know his side of it.
Well with the greatest respect and I know there are always two sides to every story..if and I repeat IF he refused to assist he is even a bigger a*se that I imagined him to be.
