That's nasty, Les!

What happened when Les appeared on Would I Lie To You on BBC One?

In an episode first shown in January of this year, he held up a card and said: “I like to keep my old fingernail clippings so I can use them later on.”

While fellow panellists including Richard Osman and host Rob Brydon grimaced, opposing team captain David Mitchell asked him what he did with his clippings.

“Well, if I’ve had a sandwich… and I have forgotten to get hold of a toothpick…” Les replied with an embarrassed chuckle.

With his own team captain Lee Mack holding his head in his hands, David continued his questioning.

“So you keep your old fingernail clippings?”

“If I get a really good one that’s got a nice hook in it, then I will save it for later.”

Was it really the truth on Would I Lie To You on BBC One?

With Richard Osman saying he was “appalled” on Would I Lie To You, Les soon had to tell the panellists whether he was telling a porkie or telling the awful truth.

Host Rob said he really hoped Les wasn’t telling the truth.

But to everyone’s amazement, Les revealed he was telling the truth.

“It is [true], and I promise not to do it anymore now,” he said sheepishly.

“It’s a different show now, it runs an hour, we were only half an hour,” he told The Sun.

“I think that it’s quite long at an hour.”

“ITV hasn’t served Gino well there.”
