A pregnant woman laughed so hard during Alan Carr’s live show that she went into labour.
Her waters broke just before the interval of his Spexy Beast tour in Brighton on Monday night, and she was rushed off to hospital, where she later gave birth to a healthy girl.
In the interval, Carr tweeted: ‘An audience member has gone into labour during my Spexy Beast show!!! Pass me a hot towel and tongs I'm going in! Sending love to u and bump.’
The woman, called Tessa, had visited the toilet several times during the first half, but couldn’t hang on until the end of the show.
She said: ‘I had the baby at 12.30am and would’ve needed more than hot towels and forceps.
‘So annoyed we missed the show, I hung on as long as I could but Alan would’ve had to been good at catching if I stayed.
‘That man shouldn’t be so funny!’
