Piers Morgan has opened up about that time Cheryl asked the Good Morning Britain host to pose naked for her life drawing class.
Or did she?
Recalling the moment he received the cheeky text from the Love Made Me Do It singer, Piers wrote about the contents of her risqué message.
Hi Piers babe. Im getting private art lessons and my homework this week is life drawing, he wrote in his Event Magazine column.
Would you come round and posed naked for me?
Itll only take a few hours and we can have a good natter.
And dont worry, Ill whack the heating up!
If youd rather we can position fruit and stuff in front of your naughty bits! Let me know, love Cheryl xxx.
Theres a lot to unpack here, but Piers was immediately taken aback by the message, thinking it was a genuine yarn from the singer, as he added on his column: Cheryl once willingly married Ashley Cole, so her bar for male nudity is clearly very low!
However, it wasnt long before Piers realised hed been bamboozled and was the subject of a cruel prank by Michael McIntyre, who had taken Cheryls phone to send the text.
The former Girls Aloud singer had appeared on the comedians Big Show, of which her episode will air next week, as Piers added: Millions of viewers will not only see me cruelly shocked for my style but also suffering a chronic sense of humour failure…
Hes not the only famous face to fall victim to Michaels brand of humour, after Jamie Oliver was offended after Holly Willoughby sent him a message about his hideous wardrobe.
As you know, I am a global style icon, the message read from the Im A Celebrity hosts phone. This Morning are doing a feature where I help people with absolutely no dress sense and I immediately thought of you.
What WAS that hideous thing you were wearing last time I saw you? Hope you wont be offended but could you come in with a few of your outfits for Phil and I to laugh at. In return youll get a whole new wardrobe.
What do you say? Need to know ASAP. Love Holly xxx
Yep, you guessed it – it was Michael, the fiendish messenger.
