Most bizarre show­biz boast EVER

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

TELLY babe Anthea Turner has re­vealed she was once asked to hand-pick a plush car­pet for Pres­i­dent-Elect Don­ald Trump.

The 56-year-old presenter boasted about be­ing asked for in­te­rior de­sign ad­vice from The Don­ald af­ter the pair met dur­ing an in­ter­view for GMTV.

Anthea said the in­com­ing POTUS was kind enough to of­fer her a lift to New York on his pri­vate jet, which she de­clined.

But the un­likely pair met up in the Big Ap­ple and spent the day go­ing over car­pet sam­ples for one of the prop­erty mogul’s new ven­tures.

Anthea said: “Don­ald Trump of­fered me a lift on his pri­vate jet.

“I was in­ter­view­ing him for GMTV, and off-cam­era I men­tioned I was go­ing to travel to New York.

“I de­clined, but we RUG PICK: Anthea gave Trump ad­vice met up when I was there. While I was in his of­fice he told me that he’d just bought a float­ing casino and was look­ing at the car­pet sam­ples and could I help him pick one?”

For­mer Blue host Anthea, Peter who di­vorced Grant Bovey in 2015, hasn’t kept in touch with the coiffed Repub­li­can though, and said she has no idea whether he went with her choice.

She ex­plained: “I wasn’t keen on any of them but chose the least of­fen­sive.

“I of­ten won­der if my car­pet was the one he or­dered.”
