Kelly Brook sent ’embarrassing’ message to Idris Elba after ‘tipsy’ encounter

Kelly Brook has revealed that she once met Luther actor Idris Elba at a showbiz cocktail party and was so "taken aback" by his handsome looks that she bizarrely pretended she was working at the event.

Radio presenter Kelly, 41, told her Heart Drive co-host JK: "So if you’re in Kings Cross and you fancy a tipple, head to Idris Elba’s new champagne bar, you might see him there.

"The last time I saw Idris Elba was in a champagne bar and I was pretty tipsy. And I saw him, and like most women, was taken a bit kind of like, taken aback. And I went behind the bar and I started pretending I worked there, and asked him if he wanted a drink."

Kelly revealed she made Idris, 49, a cocktail and woke up the next day hungover and realised what she'd done.

She continued: "So I went to my Twitter, because I didn’t obviously have his number or anything. And I slipped into his DMs… I can’t believe I’m telling this story."

A laughing JK replied: "I can’t either!" as Kelly said: "I think I did say something, “I hope you enjoyed the cocktail I made you last night”, His response was – I’ve got it here, this was 2014 – he said: “It was awful thought that counts though, babe, nice to meet you."

"And I said, “Oh gosh, no, really well at least it looked pretty”, I think I’d put some stuff in it, and I said: “Nice to meet you, by the way I have a really bad hangover”.

Kelly revealed that Idris replied: "He went: “Haha! Just have a lie in”, and that was it. That was the last I heard from him! How embarrassing. How embarrassing.
