Time is ethereal and space ever changing and so we are not exactly sure how to refer to former-TOWIE stars Lydia Bright and Tom Kilbey now the loved up couple have left the show and instead entered into 'career purgatory' or limbo. Do we call them 'off-script reality stars'? 'Future I'm A Celeb… contestants'? Or, just, like: 'people'?
Anyway, for now we are calling them BABY PRANKSTERS. Former TV stars and future people Lydia Bright and Tom Kilbey are BABY PRANKSTERS.
Why? Well, this week Tom tweeted a picture of him smooching up to Lydia's stomach with the caption "Four months! What shall we call it?", which made us sprint to the 'Preggers Klaxon' we have installed and ever-ready in the heatworld offices. It also made current and actual TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh all broody and excited too, tweeting "godmother!" immediately afterwards, like calling shotgun for the passenger seat in a car.
But power down the klaxons, untweet your messages of godmotherly support: They were only having a ruddy laugh. "OMG I'm not preggers sorry guys just to much Chinese food," Lydia said. "@tomkilbey you was not suppose to tweet that pic tut tut." Tut tut, Tom Kilbey. Tut tut. No Celebrity Big Brother for you.
'Tis, apparently, the season for baby prankin', as footballer Gerard Pique got carried away and announced the birth of his son with popstar Shakira before, you know, she'd actually had a baby. There is still a baby inside of Shakira. No, we don't get it, either. But if it turns out Kate Middleton is having a big Royal laugh at our expense, we are going to be annoyed. Annoyed, and surrounded by the gross of Royal Baby mugs that we had printed up.
