Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall made a star appearance on the newly rebooted Never Mind the Buzzcocks on Tuesday – and was immediately reminded of her infamous run in with a seagull earlier this summer by Noel Fielding.
As fans will remember only too well, the 28-year-old singer posted a picture of herself after being ‘s*** on’ by an inconsiderate bird a few months back.
It showed bird poo on her cheek alongside the caption: ‘A seagull s**t on my face today.’
It was one of the grimmest, strangest celebrity stories of the year, and the stars of Never Mind The Buzzcocks wasted no time reminding her of it.
After it was brought up by Noel and new host Greg Davies, Jade recounted the incident – and if anything, she was relieved there wasn’t a worse outcome at the time.
‘I was really lucky it was a solid s*** because if it was runny it would have gone in my mouth and my eye. It came off quite easily.’

Noel teased her by saying: ‘You might have liked the taste of it.’
‘Imagine if you discovered it was like a nice milkshake,’ he added.
Jade later made a cheeky joke about Noel Gallagher and his solo project High Flying Birds, after he previously made a dig at her and Little Mix in the past.
‘It’s a shame, as you know I am a big fan of high flying birds s****** on us,’ she joked.
Fair play, Jade. Fair play.
They’re joined by host Greg and regular guest Jamali Maddix.
Never Mind The Buzzcocks continues on Sky Showcase on Tuesday at 9pm.
