Pupils took musical revenge on their teacher infront of millions of TV viewers after she told a few ‘porkies’ to get them to do their school work.
Kim Reading pretended TV stars Ant and Dec had written to Year 3 children at Norton Primary to ask them to research Africa for a new version of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
The award winning Geordie duo playfully exposed her fib on their show Saturday Night Takeaway and let her pupils get their own back by singing a tongue in cheek song about their teacher.
Miss Reading said: “In the show Ant came and surprised me in the audience.
“They did a segment called ‘That Will Teach You’. I was taken down to the stage and one of the children from class appeared from behind the sofa to show all the work they had done. Then they all sang the song to me.”
To create the song, Ant and Dec visited pupils, aged seven to eight, at school and asked them questions about Miss Reading.
Asked if she had a crush on anyone, they said: “She likes (pop star) Olly Murs. She likes (presenter) Stephen Mulhern - she wants to go out for a night with him.”
On whether she had ever lied to them, they said: “Yes she said you wrote a letter to us but she wrote it herself.”
They added that they know now ‘not to trust her”.
After the fun song, which included lines ‘you told porkies to get some homework done’ and ‘we don’t trust her at all’, she met Olly Murs and Stephen Mulhern.
All the class have since received bikes from ITV as a thank you.
Miss Reading said: “I was totally surprised and loved every minute of it - the children did as well. Our topic this term is lights, camera, action so it was perfect.”
