Last week, NOVA FM’s most popular hosts invited Armytage in for an interview at Nova HQ. At the end of a friendly chat, Armytage was escorted into a ‘Panic Room’. She was led, blindfolded, into a pitch black room. Not knowing what was in there (and fearing it would be snakes), she tried to feel her way through the room with her hands.
What she found was a naked man. A naked Fitzy, to be exact. The man Armytage was speaking to in a professional capacity minutes ago, ambushed her in the dark, stark-naked and positioning himself physically so that she had to touch him.
‘God I don’t know if it’s a person…it is a man, or a woman with muscles,’ Armytage said, realising who it was she was touching.
She screamed, recoiled, and backed out of the room, saying: ‘Oh my god, my eyes are burning!’
As Fitzy and Wippa laughed heartily, Armytage had a split-second decision to make: Be cool with the naked ambush, or call out the guys for treating her inappropriately.
Armytage chose to be in on the joke.
She even accepted the boys’ apology with a counter-joke on Twitter:
