A gang of graffiti-loving grandmothers praised their ‘wonderful’ hobby during an appearance on This Morning, before teaching hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield how to spray paint.
The four women, from Aberdeen, appeared on the programme to talk about their unconventional pastime.
Pearl Cameron told how she has been practising the art since she was 68, and was encouraged into it by her grandson.
Along with three pals, she helped Holly and Phil ‘tag’ the This Morning studio wall with bold stencils of their faces, with Holly calling the hobby ‘so great’.

Pearl, Rosemary Murray, Dorothy Bothwell and Anne Yule appeared on This Morning to show off their artistic skills.
The four women admitted they’d got into spray painting via different ways, and they’re now part of a group which allows them to leave their artwork on authorised walls in Aberdeen.
Pearl called it ‘a wonderful’ hobby, saying: ‘There’s a lot of young people inside the old ones.’
She revealed her ‘tag’ is a combination of two hearts – inspired by the fact she underwent a heart transplant in 1995.

Meanwhile rebellious pensioner Rosemary left Holly and Phil in stitches after she said: ‘Well if you have permission and if it’s been authorised. Aberdeen Inspired fund all the walls which were available.
‘Graffiti is not graffiti if it’s legal. But if you do do it. Run.’ With Holly and Phil giggling, she clarified: ‘So don’t get caught.’
She said she is part of a group of 16 artists – 14 of which are grandmas.
Rosemary told Phil that if they were caught illegally painting, they should ‘run’. She was one of four grandmothers appearing on This Morning to discuss their unusual hobby

In the chaos of the segment, Dorothy, 82, who worked as a headteacher, appeared happy to get her hands dirty as her hair ended up coated in paint.
Speaking about her passion for spray painting, she said: ‘It feels like being let loose and being allowed to do all of the things you weren’t allowed to do as a child.’
The fourth grandmother, Anne, admitted her grandchildren were left ‘puzzled’ by her unconventional hobby.
Armed with their stencils, the women went on to assist the This Morning hosts in their first experience of wielding a spray paint can.
