Paul Merson’s prank on Jeff Stelling about dating Kylie Minogue at Brits

Former Arsenal star Paul Merson hilariously managed to fool Jeff Stelling into thinking that he dated Kylie Minogue for three months.

Merson recalled how he once drunkenly asked pop legend Minogue at the Brit Awards if she would go out with him.

Stelling was left convinced that the pair had actually dated before Merson revealed that he was joking. 

Speaking on Stelling’s Football’s Greatest: Euros podcast, Merson was asked by a fan if it was true that he once asked Minogue out.

Merson said: ‘Yeah. No, I was at the Brit Awards. I got invited. My agent knew people at Sony Records, and I was tanked up and I went up to her and said ‘would you go out with me?’.

Stelling then asked: ‘How did she let you down?’, to which Merson replied in a serious tone: ‘She didn’t, we went out for about three months, and then I broke it up.’

Merson subsequently exclaimed: ‘Like f*** I did!’, which prompted laughter from Stelling.

Following that, Merson said: ‘No, she said no straight away and a bouncer came over and said ‘get away’.

He later went on to play for Middlesbrough, Aston Villa, Portsmouth and Walsall.
