Roman Kemp gutted after accidentally eating special Creme Egg worth £10,000
| Last updated
Roman Kemp was ‘gutted’ after eating a Creme Egg worth £10,000 by accident before he knew what it was worth.
You see, currently Cadbury is having an annual egg hunt, whereby people can purchase Creme Eggs in the hope of winning a cash prize on top of their tasty treat.
So, if you find one of the rare eggs - which are half white chocolate and half milk chocolate - you have to get a special ticket that comes with them and then find out whether it’s worth £5,000 or £10,000.
One of those eggs managed to find itself in the hands of Capital Breakfast host Roman Kemp, who promptly munched it down without realising the enormity of what he had in his hands.
Afterwards, the 30-year-old celebrity tweeted: “What is this??? HALF WHITE HALF MILK CHOCOLATE??”
In his hand, he was holding one of the prized eggs.
Quickly, people started to point out that he maybe shouldn’t have eaten it, given that you need a picture of yourself with the uneaten Creme Egg via email if you’re going to claim the prize.
Oh dear, Roman.
After clocking all the people telling him that he needed to not eat the egg, he then updated fans by frantically writing: “I HAVE ALREADY EATEN IT AND PEOPLE ARE SAYING ITS WORTH 10K!?”
He then added: “I HAVE EATEN IT. WHAT DO I DO NOW? HELPPPPPPPPP.”
Some people were sceptical about whether this was all real, suggesting that maybe he’d mocked up an egg himself using Tippex or was taking part in some sort of viral marketing campaign.
“PEOPLE SAYING ITS A PRANK OR THAT IVE TIPPEXED IT. I F****** WISH,” he said. “I WISH THIS WAS AN ADVERT."
Finally, when asked how it feels to munch down something worth £10,000, he concluded: “THIS IS NOT FUNNY. IT TASTES LIKE REGRET.”
Oh well, at least it was a delicious snack, right?
Obviously he received a lot of sympathy online, with one person commenting: “It’s a little bit funny.”
Another wrote: “This has made me laugh more than you would like me to… sorry… but also thank you.”
However, there was some genuine sympathy to be had as well.
One concerned observer said: “Tbf, they should put a sticker on each egg or something with the warning.
“You’re the second I’ve heard that has happened to and I’ve only seen one poster promoting it or else I wouldn’t of [sic] known.”
Well, now you all know, at least.
Don’t eat the half and half eggs, unless you’d rather have a tasty chocolate and fondant treat instead of 10 grand.
