Ex-Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara has lifted the lid on the best prank he was ever the victim of while at White Hart Lane.
O’Hara, 30, is currently in the Celebrity Big Brother house after his playing career dwindled following a bright start at Spurs.
The midfielder had loan spells at Portsmouth and Wolves before moving permanently to Molineux in 2011. But injury blighted his career, which also took in spells at Blackpool, Fulham and Gillingham.
O’Hara, who was married to former glamour model Danielle Lloyd, is now in the CBB house, where he recalled to fellow housemates a story from his Tottenham days.
He said: “I think the best prank I ever got was, I’d just started speaking to this girl and I was close with one of the boys there [at Spurs].
“When I’ve gone to the shower he changed the girl’s number in my phone to his number.
“So for the whole time I’m thinking it’s this girl and I’m saying, ‘yeah why don’t you come on over?’. And she went, ‘yeah yeah my Dad’s a big Spurs fan, we’re gonna get a private jet I’ll come and see you the night before the game.’
“So I’m texting her going ‘ah sweet’ and she’s going, “I can’t wait to see you.’
“And I’m texting her back filth. I’m going the lot.
“I’m on the coach – everyone’s on the coach. He’s at the back and he’s messaging me and I’m going, like, “I wanna do this and that. Come and see me tonight in the hotel.”
“They literally got me to go to a room and when I’ve gone to the room everyone is standing there – even the coach – and gone ‘wheeyy’.”
