Comedian Joe Lycett Claims Government Fell For ‘Leaked Sue Gray Report’

Comedian Joe Lycett claims he completely catfished the government after 'leaking' a parody 'Sue Gray report' and says that members of the parliament allegedly took it seriously.

As the nation awaits Sue Gray's findings about the Downing Street lockdown parties, Lycett opted to make up a fake report, which has since gone viral.

The comedian tweeted: "BREAKING: Leaked Sue Gray report reveals shocking abuse of the rules.

"Hard to see how the PM can cling on after this."

The summary of his seven 'main findings' were utterly outrageous, as point two of his list read: "Games were played which were known as 'Slow Dance' and 'Pass the A***hole'."

Point three referred to 'a number of WhatsApp groups being created, such as 'Definitely A Meeting (wink emoji)' and 'Down It Street'.

Another point said: "A video of the PM's wife at one party confirms her attendance in which she is heard saying, 'it could be as few as four and as many as 60 kids' lol."

The summary was, incredibly, signed off with: Please forward any queries to my email [email protected]"

In a follow-up tweet, Lycett claims that he received a private message from 'someone who works for a cabinet minister'.

He goes as far to say: "Source is verified" along with: "Mummy catfished the government" which is followed by a fishing rod emoji.

However, this is yet to be confirmed and Downing Street have been contacted by LADbible for comment.

As shown in a screenshot posted on social media, the message from the alleged person read: "I work in Parliament for the conservatives and I think u need to kno(w).

"Your tweet this morning was read as an actual serious leak from Sue Gray's report.

"U had MP staff literally running around panicking from what it said.

"Panic dialling MPs like we need to discuss this right now."

The so-called source then added: "Absolutely legendary work well done."

One user commented: "It's funny until you remember the people that thought this was serious literally run the country."

Another wrote: "They didn't even think the email address was slightly suspicious?"

A third complained: "What’s particularly frightening is if they thought this was real, how far from the truth is it..?"

Someone else suggested: "If they could even remotely think this was real than maybe it’s closer to the truth than we realised. We defo need to rename it ‘Down It Street’."
