A WOMAN who claimed to have a "naked drunken fumble" with Prince Harry in Las Vegas has been arrested for fraud as she tried to board a flight to Mexico. Carrie Lynn Reichert, from San Diego, has been wanted in Harrison County, Mississippi, for writing cheques totalling $21,672, dating back to August 2003, according to the New York Daily News. A source told the paper: "Customs matched her up at the airport. She was fixing to go out of the country, but we had them snatch her up." Reichert claimed she was 32 when she gave a kiss and tell interview on the naked Prince last month but has now admitted she is 40. The Palace denied her claims and said she wasn't even at the party.

WORLD'S LONGEST PENIS HITS MORNING TV
Holly Willoughby fought back blushes on yesterday’s This Morning show as co-host Phillip Schofield played a game of pin the world's longest penis on the cardboard cut-out. The presenters were interviewing Jonah Falcon, who boasts the world’s longest manhood, when Schofield attempted to illustrate his size with a diagram, reports The Sun. Pointing to a cardboard cut-out of an average sized penis and Falcon’s penis, Schofield explained: "That is the difference from the average male and you." Bisexual Jonah, from New York, was once stopped at San Francisco International Airport by officials who thought he was concealing a bio-weapon in his trousers. But Falcon said he wouldn't change anything about his body, saying ""I feel like I'm fine the way I am." To which Willoughby confirmed: "And so you should."
