When those pictures emerged of radio DJ Toby Anstis kissing former Mrs Elvis Presley, Priscilla Presley, it raised quite a few eyebrows and turned many heads. Now, Toby has opened up about his dates with Priscilla Presley, admitting that he found the whole experience to be a little surreal.
Anstis explained, "We were chatting in her dressing-room for about 20 minutes when I suggested dinner and she said yes, and that was that. Obviously she’s being followed around by cameras the whole time so they got a picture of her kissing me."
He added, “As a kid watching Dallas, I fancied the pants off her. She was beautiful and still is if I’m honest. Priscilla looks exquisite, speaks with such poise and has so much charisma. She really is quite someone to be with. She’s absolutely fascinating to chat with and someone like that you just sit back and listen to.”
Toby continued, "Of their first date, in a quiet west London restaurant, he gushes: “It was almost an out-of-body experience. But P’s also chatty and easy to chat to – she was genuinely interested in me, and asking about my TV stuff. It’s not all about her. She was in London for three more weeks, and we went out two more times."
Priscilla Presley was married to Elvis Presley from 1967 until 1973 and had daughter Lisa Marie Presley together. Meanwhile, Toby Anstis is probably best known for his partnership with the children's television stuffed animal Otis the Aardvark.
