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.
