Anne Hegerty to tackle topless Geordie in pub quiz after fans said he looked like her


ANNE Hegerty has accepted a quiz challenge from the shirtless Newcastle United fan she was recently mistaken for.

The Chaser replied to a tweet from landlord and footy fan Lee Robinson asking who’d be up for watching him take on the famous quizzer at The Phoenix Tap in Whitley Bay.

Never one to shy away from a contest, Anne replied: “Well, bearing in mind that I’m in panto in Middlesbrough at Christmas – contact my agent!”

Chuffed Lee wrote: “Brilliant… Thanks Anne. Will do and thanks for being such a good sport 👍.”

Anne had a string of brilliant comebacks when she was compared to the passionate Magpies fan online, insisting: “My t*ts are bigger than that.”

The 60-year-old genius was cruelly asked if she was the moob-baring Geordie pictured on Twitter – but left fans in hysterics by making light of the situation.

When the pictures came to the I’m A Celeb star‘s attention, she tweeted: “I would just like to confirm that this is NOT me … 🤣

And when another follower asked her to prove it, she replied simply: “My t*ts are bigger than that.”

Another fan wailed: “I can’t unsee this” but quick as a flash, Anne hit back: “YOU can’t unsee it? How do you think I feel? 😂
