Rev Richard Coles pop star vicar in loo drama

Reverend Richard Coles asked his Twitter followers to help when a door handle broke
More than 2,000 people rallied to a cry for help from former pop star-turned-vicar Reverend Richard Coles after he announced he was "trapped" in a room and needed the loo.Mr Coles, keyboard player in 80s band The Communards and now vicar of Finedon, Northamptonshire, said on Twitter the door handle was broken."I am trapped in my bedroom... I have had to pee in an ornament," he wrote.Hundreds suggested how he might get out and he said he was "freed by 9am".Mr Coles said on social media on Saturday morning he was staying at a friend's house in Edinburgh when he realised he could not get out of his bedroom as "the door handle just goes round and round and does not move the latch".
As he did not wish to wake his host, he had been forced to improvise when he needed to use the lavatory.

I am trapped in my bedroom. The door handle just goes round and round and does not move the latch. I have had to pee in an ornament. My host is asleep in the room next door. Please advise.— Richard Coles (@RevRichardColes) August 24, 2019

The former pop star, and presenter of BBC Radio 4's Saturday Live programme, asked his 190,000 Twitter followers for advice.While many made light of his dilemma, others were quick to offer help."Use your multitool to retighten the grubscrew, or remove the doorknob and use the pliers on the multitool to turn the shaft," wrote one."No multitool," the vicar replied.

Mr Coles even looked up a solution online, but said: "YouTube has been less than helpful, requiring heavy duty paper clips and a PhD in engineering. And now there is a wasp in the room."The vicar confirmed later he had been freed when his host "sprang me from the other side".He added: "In a fit of conscience I told my host that I had to pee in his jug because I was trapped in my room this morning (due to his poor maintenance of the door handle). "He now wants the jug destroyed rather than just thoroughly washed. "I think this is an over-reaction."
