This Is Why Karl Pilkington Almost Died From An Erection…

We’ve all seen An Idiot Abroad. But it turns out that Karl’s idiocy almost got himself killed whilst in bed with his girl.

Now, I know exactly what you are thinking. After travelling the world, he’s probably received an infection from a tropical country. But nope. Instead, the story is a bit more complex than that.

The tragic event happened whilst Karl was having sex with his girlfriend Suzanne in Tenerife. But mid-way through, the building caught fire, and the pair weren’t exactly ready to stop.

“I do not like being nude. We did not have a much money and we stayed at this apartment in Tenerife that wasn’t very nice. It was when I was younger, I had a bit more energy. We started having it away a bit.”

“Suzanne told me I better get it. I said, ‘I can’t get it now, I’ll have to wait a bit. The banging is getting louder. I open the door, it’s a fireman. I just stick my head round and he’s going, ‘You’ll have to get out. The building is on fire’.

“So I’m like, ‘In a minute’. I had to wait a minute. I couldn’t get my pants on.”

Thankfully, Karl and Suzanne managed to escape with no messy accidents.
