We’ve all had pretty mortifying incidents when builders, decorators or plumbers are in the house – whether it’s them finding your worst pants behind the radiator or catching you listening to the High School Musical soundtrack. Not that there’s any shame in that, of course. But Myleene Klass has truly outdone herself with her builder anecdote. The 40-year-old gave the builder in her house a serious eyeful as she emerged naked from the shower – only to bump right into him. Myleene, we’re cringing on your behalf.
The former Hear’Say singer told the painfully embarrassing story on Twitter, deciding to share her mortification with over 450,000 followers. Myleene tweeted: ‘Just walked straight out of the shower, smack bang into the builder and now my daughter wants me to apologise to him for “scarring his mind”. ‘Update: Builder has just told me that he and his Mrs. love my baby clothes. HOW are we having a normal conversation? My face is on fire.’ She went on: ‘Update 3: “my brothers a rapper and I manage him, Will you listen to one of his tracks”. Yes. Yesssssss. Anything. Still #mortified.’ The Smooth radio presenter also replied to a comment: ‘I can’t make eye contact and he’s just chatting away..I genuinely hoped he hadn’t recognised me…not the case.’
While Myleene’s streaking misadventure was no doubt embarrassing, many of her followers replied to her tweets claiming that the builder wouldn’t be too put out by the incident. The mother-of-two has garnered a huge fanbase for her frequent bikini pictures which she shares online, often to promote her fitness plan or her clothing range – but sometimes, just to show off that killer body. And she isn’t going to stop posting them, just because the haters complain.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk, Myleene said: ‘If you get down on other people’s opinions you’ll never be satisfied. I really don’t care what someone thinks of me that I’ve never met. ‘I feel amazing; I feel empowered. Now they all have something to say about something. You see a hair, you see a bump – but now I’ve grown up and learnt I really don’t care. ‘It’s nice to have that freedom and liberation.’ Maybe not when the builders are around, though.
