A radio station promotion promising an all-expenses paid on-air divorce on Valentine's Day was hijacked by a lesbian couple disgusted at the controversial ploy.
The Rock Drive Show hosts Robert Taylor and Jono Pryor offered to pay for the divorce provided they could broadcast the phone call to the unsuspecting spouse.
The station was strongly criticised for the "cowardly" stunt and in the end, it backfired on them when the stunt was hijacked by a lesbian couple.
When their supposed winner, Sam, who had offered to pull out the night before, called what the announcers thought was her husband Andy, a woman answered and a tirade began.
"No, this isn't Andy. It's never going to be Andy. It wasn't Andy to start with you f***ing idiots," said a woman who then revealed herself as Sam's wife, Amber.
"So how does it feel you two? How does it feel like, being on the other end of something?
"We sabotaged you, you dickheads," she added.
Sam, the original caller, then chipped in, saying the competition was a shocker and she wanted to stop someone being hurt.
An embarrassed Pryor admitted they had been foiled.
"I feel like I'm in an episode of Scooby Doo and we're finally figuring out how you caught us out..."
