ITV has admitted that This Morning was the victim of a hoax following a story about a new celebrity sp*rm bank.

CEO Dan Richards appeared on This Morning on Tuesday to discuss FameDaddy, the “first celebrity sp*rm donor service”.

But the broadcaster said it now appears Mr Richards did not run the website but was “an actor working for a TV production company”.

ITV has apologised to viewers who were “deliberately misled by this stunt”.

FameDaddy’s website states its “soon-to-launch service” will offer a list of “celebrity donors from the worlds of sport, entertainment and finance - all leaders in their fields, with a proven track record of success”.

Its sample donors includes “a rock star with annual earnings of £40m and an aristocrat in the House of Lords with an income of £5-10m”.

More at the link. One word has been edited because I seem to recall this forum is funny about certain words.

Unless the child is made heir to the millions I don’t see why it would matter where the donation came from

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.
