Oh Aisleyne. You are literally one of our most favourite people ever – even more so after hearing about your latest gaffe.
After heaping praise on former PM Margaret Thatcher during a recent interview – and saying she’d like to get her drunk – it all got a bit awkward after it became apparent that Aisleyne, darling of the Conservative Party, didn’t realise old Maggie had DIED quite a while ago.

The former Big Brother star was asked by The Mirror who she’d most like to invite for a ‘dream night out’, and the answer took us somewhat by surprise:
“Do you know what? My dream night out would be with someone like Margaret Thatcher.”

“What? You look blank! Listen - She paved the way for me, she made it so the normal person could buy a flat, so she helped me along the way on my route to success – buying flats and such.”

“So I’d really like to go to dinner with her, pick at her brain, have a little chat and get her drunk!”
At this point there’s a sort of stunned silence in the room, where the interviewer thought it would be wise to let our Ais know that Mags had popped her clogs a whole TWO years ago.

Seeming shocked to say the least, the author of 'Escaping Guns, Gangs and Glamour’ let out an embarrassed “REALLY!? Love you girl! RIP, sorry ”.
Oh babe, never change.
